Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than Average This is in reference to the review I did previously ("average"). The Home Depot does not have an edit option for a review. This pump does have connections for hoses that have to be very tight. The hoses have to be cinched or twisted all the way to the end of the connections in order to be watertight. Once, that is figured out, the unit performed exceptionally well. It is powerful for it's size and did a great job for me. In order to vacume the pool, the flow direction has to be taken off the filter selector and moved to the system that bypasses the filter and runs straight from the pool through the skimmer and then back into the pool. That way the flow is extremely powerful. I use a skimmer net too (about 25 dollars) to try and catch the tiny debris. Once you figure this unit out you will appreciate how well it works. It worked perfectly all summer long. November 30, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average I have hooked up the unit correctly but the unit leaks from almost every connection, no matter how tight the seal. I hope this stops as the days go on. It requires three bags of pool sand. The power of the pump is great sometimes and weak the very next. It is a very quiet unit. My local pool store has it for sale (regular price) at $219 dollars. I bought it three months ago and the Home Depot does not match prices that far back. June 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works wonderful We upgraded to this filter system over the summer and it was the best thing we could have done! Our pool stayed so clean August 29, 2012
