    New pool questions

    I am just starting to choose the equipment to go with a new pool.
    So to start of it will be a 15-x-26-ft-oval
    Hayward1.5-hp-turbo-flo-ii-2spd pump
    Hayward X-tream Cartridge filter

    Since I was wanting to get the pool pump and filter from one source I feel that these are my best options but maybe I am missing something.
    Other questions that I have are is one skimmer sufficient or would 2 be beneficial? also how many return lines should I have to have proper circulation?

    Thanks in advance for your help
    Nate

    Welcome to TFP. Pump looks good. If you can swing it, go with the biggest filter you can afford to cut down on cleaning.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    2-speed pump is good
    I was going to suggest a 150+ sqft filter ... so that is good too

    One skimmer should be fine (put it on the predominantly downwind side of the pool). Likely 2 return jets should be enough as well to get the water circling.
