    Neewbie Here

    Been looking around this forum for a few weeks now. This is truly a great website. I have learned so much being a new pool owner. I have a Pro Series Above Ground 14' X 42". Going to be doing some upgrading in the next few weeks. I am going to upgrading my pump and filter. looking at putting in an Intex 2500gph. i would also like to add some lighting to the inside of my pool. there is a couple of other things but cannot think of them right now.

    Welcome! The recommendation is to upsize the filter compared to the pump.
