Hello from PA! Quick intro!
Not so new pool owner. I have had an Intex 18' Ultra frame for 5 years. Very little issues with the pool and have been quite pleased. I have run a SWG since I have had the pool and could not be more pleased with the performance. Last year I upgraded the filter system to a Sand Filter when the old cartridge one died. I can't believe I waited that long to do it! Night and day performance and ease of maintenance. Good riddance cartridges!
Anyways since I upgraded the filter I just purchased but have not received yet an Intex 22' Ultra Frame. I have some questions which I will post in another forum because I am going to try some things this year that I have not done before. Hopefully with the expertise here from this group I can make this transition quite smooth and be up and running trouble free ( Pun Intended ) for many more years to come!
