I am very new to pools, but have read through several posts.
So, I just finished setting up my Bestway 12x30, of course, the pump that came with it is a joke. So, I bought a combo Intex Sand filter and Saltwater generator, this one... http://www.amazon.com/Intex-Saltwate...ywords=28679EG
Yes, I know it is overkill for a 12x30, but we plan to get a larger pool next year.
Anyway, to my question---this Bestway pool has 3 holes in it....I think 2 suction holes and 1 hole that puts the filtered water back into the pool (sorry, don't know what that hole is called, yet))...the Intex SWG combo only has TWO hoses..one hose that plugs into ONE suction hole and the other hose that goes into the hole that puts the filtered water back in the pool.....I just used one of the three supplied stopper plugs to plug the one extra suction hole.....is it OKAY to just plug one of the holes or should I somehow use that other suction hole with the pump??
oh, and if it matters as far as water flow to the pump..I had to buy an adapter to fit the 1.5" hoses for the SWG..as the pool came with 1.25" hoses, originally.
Here is the stopper plug I am talking about http://www.bestwaybuyonline.com/imag...per%20Plug.png
I hope all this makes sense and I didn't ramble too much
here is a picture that I took..seems like you all enjoy seeing pictures
