    Intex 24x54 AGP need help

    hello im new to TFP. The wife has been asking me to do some upgrades to our pool and this is what i want to do.

    #1. hard plumb a Hayward 1 1/2hp power flo lx along with a hayward s220t sand filter.

    #2. install a threw the wall skimmer- still dont know what one to install

    #3. make a water feature for the kids


    i have seen some of the photos on this site and they are amazing. i want to do this only once. so if anyone has any good ideas please help me out. i would like to know what are the connections and the best size of pipe to plumb this pool. I would like to remove the factory plunger valves that came with the pool and use ball valves and i also need to install a SWG for my pool. so if anyone can point me in the rite direction thanks.

    Do you own an Intex SWG already? (your sig says so) Is it waiting to be plumbed yet?

    Run a search at the bottom left of any page (google search) for "hard plumbed" and I think you'll find the threads that have images of hard plumbed (maybe search "piped" too) Intex pools.

    Also search for "aerator", that should pull up a number of images/threads with various water features. Realize any water feature will raise your pH, as well the addition of a SWG. FYI

    Year 3 BBB -15' x 48" Intex Metal Frame - Was using (2) 1000gph Intex cartridge filters (see Full time pumping Intex). 2012, converted to 1600gph and sand filter+SWG = Sand filter love affair!
    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.
