I stumbled across this site while doing research for adding/upgrading pumps and a sand filter to my Intex metal frame AGP (15x48"). This site and the things I have seen done to "cheap" AGP pools is mind boggling. So, the problem is now, I have a TON of ideas to help me and my pool out!
First, I can't seem to navigate this site very well or find follow ups to questions about cutting the liner and stuff. I would like to install a thru the wall skimmer and would like to know how it is done? I mean, usually it is installed on a pool that has some outer support on the wall (permanent AGP pool). How do you install it without any support?
Also, I am probably going to upgrade to the Intex 2100GPH pump with sand filter. It is a little big for my pool, but eventually my pool will grow. I know with the larger 2500GPH pump (633), people have cut the liner and installed the fittings that came with the pump because of the larger size. Do these fittings just attach through the wall and screw together? Do they fit so well that they don't leak?
Thanks for any help and pictures!!!
