    pump and SWG positioning off ground

    Another Question. I have a 3 tiered shelf unit. I want to put the intex cartridge pump on the 1st shelf, the SWG on the 2nd shelf and use the 3rd shelf for drinks etc.. next to the pool. Would there be any problems positioning the pumps this way. My new intex pool is filling up right now, hooray.

    As long as the shelf is reasonably stable that should be fine. The only important limitation is that the pump needs to be below the water line, and it sounds like that won't be an issue. The pump will cause some vibration. Hopefully the shelf is stable enough that there won't be an issue with the drinks shaking.
