Hey all!! Been doing some research and found this awesome forum! My husband has VERY reluctantly agreed to let us (me and two boys, ages 2 and 4) get a pool. Originally I was just planning to get the small intex pop up pool. But he has expressed that if I'm going to do this I need to do it right and make it a little easier on myself. So here is my plan... I still want a small pool, since my boys are small. Looking at the 12'x30" intex metal frame pool, I would like to use a sand filter and salt filtration. I am looking at the intex Krystal clear sand filter pump 1200 gph, and the intex salt filtration with EOC, the smallest I have found says 7000 gallons. Since I have no idea really what I am doing, please help me out! The salt filtration came from a recommendation from a friend who uses the same, but their pool is 18'x48". I guess my question is, will this stuff even work with a pool this small? Ideally I would like to shell out the money for a nice system and use a smaller pool for 3-4 years and then upgrade the pool (using the same system) when the boys are a little bigger. HELP!
