    enough pump?

    getting ready to get the new intex 16x48 ultra up and will upgrade things as i go along, i am starting out with putting a thru wall skimmer on it when i set it up, will the pump/filter that came with the pool be enough to properly work this way or should i wait until i get a bigger (sand filter pump)
    not sure when that will be? could be next month could be next year not sure .? pump model is the 635t not sure the gph of it?

    635t is 1500 gph but that is just the limit of the pump. Depending on the setup it could be less than that. But given the pool is small, It wouldn't hurt to just run the pump and see if you get enough circulation.
