I've done lots of reading here and elsewhere the past week, and I think I've decided on most things. The main thing I need help deciding is what filter and pump to get, and where is a good place to get them at.
I'm going to get an above ground 18x39 oval pool with straight sides, with a 6' deep end dug out, so I'm guessing it'll be somewhere around 22,000-25,000 or so gallons. I'm going to try to find an older model Intex SWG, and add some borates (which seems to help a little with everything).
My electricity is around $0.16 kwh, so I'm guessing a 2 speed pump is probably the most economical. What size do I need though, and does anyone have recommendations?
For filters, I think I'll go with a sand or cartridge filter. Overall, which is cheaper and which is easier to maintain? What size would I need, or what would be recommended?
Thanks for any recommendations and help
