We just bought a 10 x 30 bestway for 50 bucks at kmart. It's small actually only about 18 inches deep. Good for our 3 year old and mom and dad can sit down in it and stay cool. The filter sucks In my opinion though. It's 330gph with a dinky cartridge that clogs every 8 hours. I'm just wondering if the intex 1000gph cartridge filter would do a good job at keeping the pool clean. It holds just under 1000 gallons of water. I thought about going even bigger there's intex 2500 gph filters but the inlets are 1.5 inch and I thought that might be overkill. Will a 1000 gph run a vacation?
I use sodium hypochlorite as a sanitizer.
Thanks just a newbie learning there's a lot more too it than just buying a pool and filling it with water.
