Here are some pics off my 12x24 above ground pool that is buried. The deck will be made in spring when the dirt is settled.
I have put foam under the liner but forget to take a pics
I have one question regarding the pool pump. The manufacturer stated this combo pump and 45kg sand filter as 4m3/h that is about 1000 gph but on the pump it is has a sticker on it with 3m3/h and that is about 800gph. It is a 125W filter (0.18hp) so I can run it for 24/7 with a minimum off electricity consumption but when I go too vacuum the pool I notice that it has little suction power. I have googled a little on internet and found out that the pool pump is of chines make and that they have 3 different pumps, 125W, 180W and 230W but esteticly they are the same. ( http://www.aquant.com.cn/pro_detail.asp?id=953 ).
With regard to the pool pump I think this system is capable off circulating the water at 800gph instead of the mentioned 1000gph. The pool pump is the limited factor is it?
Can I boost this pump up so it can work at a higher wattage without over heating it?
I have seen the intex combos sand filter + pump but how can they make a combo with such a small sand filter compared with my filter?
I have installed a main drain in the pool but there is very little suction only when I turn off the skimmer I can feel suction with my foots on it but when I open the skimmer valve I canŽt feel any suction at all. Is it better too open the 2 valves ( skimmer and main drain) when filtering ore only use the skimmer?
IŽam using the BBB method to sanitise my pool and I think I have crystal clear water, you canŽt see it on the picture because off no sun but when the sun is shinning it sparkles.
