    R about to buy the 24x52 ultra frame tommorow

    Hi new to site we r about to buy the 24x52 ultra frame tommorow and wondering about whether to keep the cartridge system or buy the san filter for 199.00. Ive also heard that if we want to use the auto vac have to have the sand fi,ter is this correct..also does this model not come with a attached auto skimmer? So is the one you buy adequote.

    I have the Ultra Frame 20 x 48. And I got the sand filter - it runs way better
    than the cheap little pump that comes with the pool. If you can swing
    the extra $ for the sand filter, go for it!

    Upgrade to the sand filter. I am not sure about the in's n outs of hooking up skimmer boxes to these INTEX pools but I do know you can purchase them at your local pool store. Also ask the pool store on installers. They may be able to help you. I have also seen installers listed on Craig's List so maybe try running an ad there in your area for an installer.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
