I'm new to TFP and looking for any constructive advise.
Sometime in the next couple of weeks I am going to set up my intex pool for a second season.
I purchased a used pump and filter(Pentair Dynamo Performance Pump I think 1 HP, and a Hayward S-166t sand filter)
I also have a Intex saltwater system (CS 8110). The last owner had new sand put in the filter then used it one season.
I have heard the sand will last about 3 seasons but I can tell they did not keep their pool very clean. Should I replace the sand in case their is some kind of contaminate?
My plan is to purchase a wide mouth skimmer, use the return fitting(that comes with the skimmer) for one of the pump returns-
than use the remaining connection to my pool for a second return. I plan on hard pipe plumbing (1.5'') : to support supply and return.
Any tips on this project would be helpful.
