    Opinions/Suggestions on Pool Brand and Equipment

    I would love any opinions or suggestions on the brand of pool and equipment that my family is planning on getting. It is an 18' Aqualeader Sentinelle above ground pool. The package we got included a Hayward 110 Swim Pro Element and a Hayward 2.0 HP Powerflo (I assume these are the filter components?), Escape Accessory Kit, Swimline Premium Maintenance Kit, ET Automatic Chlorinator, and a Heat Saver Solar Cover among other things. The price is $3400 which includes free installation. We live in Northern Ohio. I would love any opinions and/or suggestions as we are completely new to above ground pools. Thanks!

    Are you sure that's right? The size pool and pump don't match too well. IMO, the pump is too large. I'd ask they sub a smaller more energy efficient 2 speed pump. You have a link?

    I know that the Sentinelle is a nice pool. We wanted that one last year but it was on back order. My neighbor just had one installed and it looks great.

    Another question on my above post - how long should the filter run each day?
