    Hello from Kansas City!

    Hi all,
    We just got our first pool "Intex 18' x48" Ultra Metal Frame". Still boxed and working on the framing and ground base currently. Looking forward to learning more from you all and your experiences. Have already read about a few upgrades we need to do from the "factory" stuff included. (Like the pump and filter for one thing) .. still researching to find best sand filter and 2500+ gph pump... lol... Ordering some of that stuff this week.

    Anyways, thank you for the group!
    David & Amy

    I found them before I built our pool. Got the test kit and tested the fill well water. Posted results and knew what to do weeks before the pool was up. We filled the pool followed directions and have been swimming in the nicest sparkling water ever since. You can open your eyes under water with zero discomfort and see forever...these people know things.
