Hello All! I am a first time pool owner and am ready to set up the pool for the summer! With that being said, I have a few questions I am hoping to get some help with.
First, a little about my pool. It is an Intex Ultra Frame (Rectangle) Pool. This is going to sound crazy, but I am not sure of the size! The manual I downloaded said that the that the 12x24 pool should have 18 Beams and U-Shaped Side Supports and the 16x32 pool should have 24 Beams and U-Shaped Side Supports, and well, I have 22 of each. I have 22 beams, side supports, and connecting rods, so I don't think anything is missing! I am planning on just laying the pool out in my driveway today to measure it and get the exact size. Oh, and the pool was given to me by someone, so there was no box or manual with it. Maybe it isn't even an Intex, but I am sure it is.
I was given the pump and sand drum filter as well. The pumps looks to be in rough shape, so I am probably going to have to buy another one. Along with buying a new pump I also want to buy the salt water system. I am looking at the Intex Krystal Clear Saltwater System and Filter Pump combo set listed here:

It is a 2000 Gal/Hr pump and is the topic of my questions. Could this be used with the sand filter drum or would that need its own pump? Would I even need the sand filter if I bought this salt water system? Is the gal/hr rate high enough for a pool of my size (which is TBD I guess)? Would I be better off buying a new pump for the sand filter and getting a smaller size salt water system?
I am not sure what to do. Thanks in advance for any help!
