    Newbie excited to make a move

    Hello to all.
    I need to develop my signature so as not to always tell you I have a · INTEX® 14' x 42" Round Ultra Frame Pool,
    • 110-120V Krystal Clear cartridge filter pump
    • Pump flow rate: 1,000 gallons

    After being on the site last weekend and seeing posts regarding converting to saltwater systems I had to take the plunge. I pick up the · INTEX® 120V Krystal Clear Saltwater System today and i am excited but nervous. I know once installed I will love it but the jitters are with me
    I look foward to checking back in once system is here and installed.
    It so happens that I was offered a INTEX® Deluxe Wall Mount Surface Skimmer right before I found the saltwater system to pickup.
    Big question will I be able to run both?
    Should I run both??
    Thank you ahead and great days to all
