Great forum... thanks for offering a place to share and learn.
I have a ProSeries 13x22x54'. Been very happy with it, but after 6 years, starting to have a few minor issues (small rip at top, 3 pinholes). Have also mostly been concerned with the skimmer pump sounding like it is working too hard.
Bought at Canadian Tire, but their current model is a Coleman. Walmart seems to have the same ProSeries model I have, but at 70% higher price: although would now include a ground pump with sand filter.
My questions are:
-ProSeries, Coleman, Intex, and Bestway all seem to be made form the same manufacturer; but are there any quality differences?
-Is Coleman just a re-brand any of the others? Which one?
-Is a skimmer pump better than a ground pump? Or vise versa? Skimmer pump runs louder than floor pumps I have seen, but does skimmer benefit outweigh ground model?
-Thoughts on adding/buying the Sand Filter option?
Thanks... I appreciate your time.
