    HP vs THP (.75 vs .59)

    Posted by Mark Smith on May 17th 2023

    To the previous review accusing INTEX of false advertising on the horsepower of the pump is unaware of the difference between "RATED" and "TRUE" HP. All pumps regardless of brand are "rated" and advertised in a fixed HP class (1/3, 1/2, 3/4, 1 HP, etc.) for ease of comparing products. The true HP (THP) is the rated HP X it's service factor (efficiency). So this pump & almost all rated 3/4 HP retail pumps are .59 THP pumps (.75 x .7867). No brands overtly advertise the THP of their pumps. Intex is no exception.

    Hp rating

    Posted by Paul Ceballo on May 10th 2023

    While the system works well I’m very unhappy that the rating on the website shows the 26651eg as .75 hp but it’s only .58 hp on the sticker rating on the actual pump. It annoying as I could have spent a couple more bucks and got another setup that was a 1.5hp setup that would have turned over the water in the pool much faster and therefore required less run time and more energy efficiency. Not happy about this but of course didn’t see the stocker for hp rating on the motor until after I set all the sand in the tank and hooked it all up. I guess the moral is don’t believe what’s advertised and make sure you check and recheck everything before setting anything up.

    High volume, easy to set up

    Posted by Bill Tomlin on May 20th 2020

    Purchased this unit as an upgrade from my 12in Intex sand filter and to power my Intex pool cleaner. The unit moves a large volume of water and seems to do an adequate filtering job. Set up is easy but be sure you have the unit where you want it before you start setting it up as it requires 120 lbs. of sand.
