Intex — impeller
I bought an 18' by 48" pool for my kids last year, by the end of the summer, the pump had started making noise, but still pumped. This year I set the pool up and the pump would run, but not pump, so I took the cover off to find all the blades had broke off of the impeller. When I called intex, they told me I could not replace the 5 cent plastic defective impeller, but had to buy a new pump. So, I went online and found hundreds of other people, with the same problem. I think it is time for intex to step up and make this right with all of us, especially for our kids.
