Positive Reviews For The Crystal Clear 56635EG 1500-Gallon Pump and Filter
Pool owners that purchased this system did so because they were tired of their pools looking cloudy and having a hard time cleaning the pool. They wanted a more powerful system for keeping their Intex pool clear and the ability to clean the pool with a vacuume. The smaller Intex filter pumps work for circulation but upgrading to a bigger pump definitely has it’s advantages.
One benefit they really liked is the conveinence of a built in timer. No more remembering to go out and turn the system on and off. The pump has plenty of power and makes a difference in how clear the water stays.
Here’s a sample of what a few buyers had to say…
- “Pretty impressive”
- “so far so good, really like the timer feature”
- “Very reasonably priced”
Negative Reviews For The 1500 Gallon Intex Pool Filter Pump
Most complaints were because the pool owners did not know this system has 1.5″ connections and their pools have 1.25″. To help you with this I listed above the pools that will require the adaptors. Small price to pay and a simple fix to have the ability to clean your pool with a more powerful pump.
There were a few people that mentioned the box was missing some parts but this can happen with anything you can buy. Some complaints wer because they didn’t know what come’s in the box but there some that the parts were actually missing. In these cases they contacted the Consumer Service Center at 1-800-234-6839 to resolve the issues.
There were a few people that mention that they thought the pump made too much noise but this was not the consensus.

My Crystal Clear Intex 56635eg 1500-Gallon Pool Filter Pump Summary
I have over 25 years experience with swimming pools and I learned over the years that circulation is vital to keeping a pool clean and crystal clear. In my opinion, this filter pump is would be my choice for the smaller Intex pools. If you have been having problems keeping your pool clean because of a smaller pump this filter system is the perfect choice for upgrading or just as a replacement for an old pump.
This system is very user friendly and easy to install. It will really help the circulation system if you would clean your filters regularly and replace as needed or every 2 weeks with the “A” cartridge filter. Cartridges can get clogged up and dirty, reducing the flow rate.
You should get approximately 2,000 hours of operation under normal conditions and should last about 3 swimming seasons. Not a bad return on your investment. Remember for safety reasons, never swim while the pump is running and filtering.
