I'm new here. I'm a mom of two and we wanted to get a pool this year. I live in Orlando Fl. so it would be up all year. I saw at Costco for $600, an Intex ultra frame pool (16 x 48 I think) with a saltwater system. I don't know if this is a good deal or not. A few years ago we had the intex easy set pool with inflatable ring - only lasted 1 year, the water was never crystal clear, was green a lot, at times almost clear. My budget is $600 - my question is, will this package keep the water clear? Or should I go for the Walmart deal for $349 for an 14 x 48 or $369 for 16 x 48 - both with a $50 ecard bonus, and use the extra money to upgrade the pump?
I just want my kids to be able to actually use the pool daily and not wait around for mommy to try and clear up the water. And in case you haven't already guessed, I know nothing about pools.
Thank you for any information you can provide
