As I am waiting for my 15' - 4' Metal tube Intex pool to be shipped to Walmart, I am planning on adding a second filter to the pool. I have a junk Intex pool that I am going to cut out the two ports and glue them to the new pool. I have a few questions. Where should I mount the ports and what type of glue should I use. Also is it a good idea to cut out the ports and glue them on or should I try to buy ports somewhere that screw together with a washer.
I am thinking of mounting the new out port a the same height as the old one but about 8" away. I might mount intake port about 6" below the other intake port. I am trying to minimize any money being spent. The pool cost $299.00 and I would like to keep additional costs low. I am going to use the crappy filter that comes with the pool along with another filter that I have from my old Intex pool. I am going to buy some filter cartridges from Pleatco.
I ran my 12'-3' Intex pool with the carrtridge filter for two years and it was always crystal clear. I only ran the filter for 6 hours a day. I live in MA and we do not have any dust blowing around, just leaves and pollen.
