    2nd pump for above ground pool

    My pool is huge. 2652
    My kids are dirty...last year the pool was always murky, despite changing filters, water testing, you name it. I'm thinking of adding a 2nd pump, but I am afraid to cut additional new holes. ..

    Welcome, What pump and filter do you have now? If it is the factory pump and filter they are normally not up to the task of keeping the pool clean. I would suggest upgrading the pump and filter if it is the factory filter depending on what you have now.

    Welcome to TFP

    LOL on kids being dirty... Most filters are way undersized and most pumps are oversized... Fill out your signature so we can see what your dealing with and give some recommendations

    Nothing to cutting additional holes, just do it. I run my Intex with two pumps, with one handling the SWG and heater, one for additional filtration and cleaner. See my thread: Another rectangular Intex over-the-seam skimmer and hard plumb thread
