Hi I am a newbie to this site. My husband and I have upgraded the size of our pool from the 15' Intex to the 20" ProSeries model from Sears/Kmart.

We have a thru the wall skimmer paper cartridge filter. As many of you know these filters are not wonderful to keep the pool clean. I plan to purchase a sand filter, most likely the Intex model. My question therefore is; will it be compatible and how can I attach with a thru the skimmer set up? We also have well water. Thus the paper filter not working so well. HOWEVER, after reading this site I can only say I finally after 3 weeks of a lot of work, changing filters in and out, socks, white (no longer) towels and pillow stuffing I can see my pool floor and swim comfortably. My husband says I am nuts to have gone to such a large pool and more work but it is getting to be worth it because I can go in my pool. YEA. Now to keep it clean!
Second question-- I do have a sand filter container here, given to me, that perhaps I can adapt and use in conjunction with the paper filter and pump. If I can I would love too as funds are an issue as I recently went on disablilty for chemo treatments.
Any help greatly appreciated. If pictures are needed of the free sand filter container I will try to do so.
