We had an intex round pool last year but with a family of 5, it was too small to really play in so this year we went with the ultra frame 16x32x52. This pool came with the sand pump filter which we also connected to our krystal clear SWG and have enjoyed balanced water almost from the get-go. We have had a few issues that has the household frustrated at the moment but have otherwise enjoyed our pool. Out of curiosity, has anyone else had any trouble with the deluxe maintenance kit that also came with this pool? I got the floating skimmer attached to the frame with the big hook, but when I went to attach the hose b connector to the strainer grid, the hose connector is too small! We have been scratching our heads as to what to do for 2 days now. Any help anyone can give us will be much appreciated.
