My name is Aimee and I have been reading a ton of posts on this site and have found it EXTREMELY helpful and, at times, fairly entertaining! I am new to the whole pool thing...had a 10' blue blob Intex easy set last year but the ring got a hole and now I'm looking at upgrading to an Intex 16' X 48" ultra frame this year but wanted to do my homework first. Any futher helpful links anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. I know I'm already going to have to upgrade the pump but don't know which I want...seriously looking at the SWG (already learning the lingo!!!) and am intrigued by the sand filter/pump power. HELLO TO ALL! Looking forward to a fun and sunny pool season!
