    Just bought intex 22' ultra frame. ADVICE

    Going to rent sod cutter this weekend and level a 24' circle. I know filter is gonna be **** so ordering intex 2650. Was thinking of hayward vl40t32 at similar price but it's only 13" so I'm thinking 2650 @ 16" is a better fit. Being as I live in Florida panhandle and ground is mostly sand, can I just tarp the tamped level ground? I would love to foam board and foam Cove it all but to me money seems better spent on upgrading pump. Going with bbb for now. Neighbor insists that her intex was fine until adding SWG, then rusted out 1 yr later so am undecided on whether to upgrade to SWG next year. Automation appealing to me but not at risk of rusting out pool. Any long term SWG ultra frame owners? Also, putting a water hose in to vacuum seems stupid to me, any vac recommendations (either manual or robot). Also going to add wide mouth thru wall skimmer (hydro tools 8939g) probably hard pipe it all in. Can I fill it with my well for sprinklers, the guy at Leslie said that it would have too many metals and would cost me more money in treatment than just filling with my city water. A lot of pic links are dead for hard pipe adapters but I am rather handy so I hope I can figure something out once I get everything out and can look at it. Tf 100 will be ordered this week too. Any advice from any ultra frame owners would be welcome. I have been stalking this site for a week and there is so much info on here. Thanks tfp

    I would hazard to guess that her pool failed from improper maintenance and not the SWG at all.

    I haven't read a lot of bad things about them here so I wondered the same thing myself
