This is my first post and I have an Intex Pool question. My sons birthday is in a few weeks and my in-laws have said they can help us pay for an above ground pool. We really wanted a pool when buying a new house but just couldn't find a house in our price range with one. We would like to upgrade in the future to something like a Sharkline Matrix but cannot afford that right now. I think our overall budget is around $350-400. That pretty much includes the Ultra Frame 15' or 16' which are about the same price from Target and Academy. The 15' only has a 1000gph pump but the 16' has 1500gph. Is it worth it to get the larger pool with larger pump or will it not matter because I'll have to replace both pretty quickly? I'm leaning more towards the 15' because we do not have much space in our backyard because we have a concrete patio pad as well as a brick paver area taking up a good amount of space. My wife would prefer a saltwater system but we could upgrade to that in the future. Any recommendations would be helpful.
