Hello to all!! I'm currently a single mom (my husband is overseas) and am preparing to open our pool by myself!! My husband did our pool maintenance last year (we set it up last year) while I was pregnant and I didn't do much other than float around and enjoy the weightless feeling (8 months pregnant in June in Tx is noooo fun!!) We have a 24 foot Summer Escape pool that was chlorine last year. We talked about changing it to salt water this year and using a sand filter. I am a complete novice but will do the best I can to get it up and running for my girls. So here is my "laundry list" of questions;
Here's a pic of the pool - http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/v ... TIJ6HEYstB
and a close up of the filter/pump - http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/v ... TIJ6HEYstB
I was wondering how to hook up a sand filter to the current filter contraption. Would I put the sand filter intake tube where the current tube is on the filter/pump?
How would I hook up the salt water pump and the sand filter to this? If I take the pump off of the bottom of the current filter/pump water pours out of the bottom. Would I run the factory pump and the salt water pump?
As you can probably tell by all of my crazy questions I have not the slightest idea what I'm doing. I'd appreciate any and all help, advice, opinions.
