We are wanting to purchase our first pool and we want to be sure we do it right to get the most fun and use out of it. As per the sticky note, I listed the info I know that might help you help me. This pool will get nearly daily use. I suspect if it isn't raining, there will be someone in it. If usage matters.
We have settled on the AG Intex listed in my sig line bc we can't afford bigger and these are supposedly well rated by users when we researched them.
We plan to pull up sod for an 18' circle so there is plenty of room for some edging to add protection to the pool exterior and to order a truck of sand.
We would like to know tips for making it as maintence easy as possible and also to make it as affordable as possible to maintain. (I suspect those might be mutually exclusive?)
Can someone explain what pump we should upgrade to? (I'm told that is almost always key?) and explain the different ways to maintain the water? (salt, chlorine??)
Can we keep this up all year or no? Pros/cons to doing that?
Any other tips?
Thank you very much.
