    18 foot ultra frame and Hayward power flo lx pump????

    Is an 18 foot ultra frame pool and Hayward power flo lx pump a good combination? We have the pump from a total pool fail (I'd rather not talk about it. ) We are considering buying the 18 foot or 22 foot ultra frame pool and everyone suggests a pump upgrade. Since we have this one I thought it would be easiest to use it. Any tips, advice, help is much appreciated as I have no idea what I'm doing.

    Look at the pump label and give us the model number (of the pump not just the motor), or take a picture of the label and post it.

    Look at the label on the filter and give us the model number, or take a picture of the label and post it.

    If you post pics make sure that we can make out the details on the labels. It might help to post a full picture of the filter as well.

    The filter is a de ec40 filter and the pump is a sp156022 We purchased the 18' x 48'' pool. We have chemicals. I think we will upgrade to the salt water system next summer.

    Those should work fine on either of those pools. They're definitely better than the stock Intex's.

    Is there anything extra I need to do for setup?

    You'll need some adapters. Search the Intex threads for how and where to get those.
