    Question Please review/critique this pool package, especially the pump and filter setup!

    Hi All,

    I'm narrowing down a pool package and would like to get some feedback. This will be our first pool so we're not looking to spend a ton of money, but we would like half-decent components. Here's what I've selected so far:

    15'x54" Saltwater 8000 Round Pool w/Hayward Thru-Wall Skimmer & Return Fitting
    Hayward Power-Flo Matrix 1hp 2-speed pump (#SP15922S)
    Hayward 18" Sand Filter S180T
    15'x54" Round Uni-Bead Portofino Liner - 25 Gauge
    Ocean Blue Mighty Step
    15' Round Peel N' Stick Foam Pool Cove
    15' Round Space Age Silver/Blue Solar Cover
    Solaxx Saltron Retro Saltwater Chlorine Generator SALRET20A
    Pool Rover Jr

    The total so far is about $3400

    What do you guys think so far? I'm especially looking for some feedback on the pump and filter setup. I was hoping to find a combo integrated pump/filter system for simplicity's sake and to save money, but they're rarely offered with 2-speed pumps, or if they do the pump is much more HP than I need. However, if you know of one that's under $500 please let me know. Right now the separate pump and filter I listed come out to about $550, not counting whatever accessories I may need to buy to get them to play together.

    Thoughts, suggestions, advice?

    That is a great pump for your pool and the filter is plenty big too.

    I am not sure there are any combo units that are similar ... usually the pump is too big or the filter is too small.
