    Wow! I must say, that's one of the nicest INTXT set ups I've ever seen! Love the night lights around the pool! What did you use?

    Thank you...Lights or just Blue LEDs, Solar powered...ran across a local guy who design light set ups for hunting. He has red, green, blue, and white. I believe he ships, let me know if you need his info.

    Here is the close up of the lights. The picture is a setup normally used for camping and hunting. For my install, all the pieces are separated. Once separated you can place all the pieces where you want them. The guy who designed the lights can give you more detail. They work great!

    The cartridge filter is mainly a backup in case the pump on the sand filter goes out, which is what happened on my first filter last summer. It can also be lined up to a future waterfall.

    Are you viewing them on a pc or phone? I couldn't see them on my iPhone.

    Eta: It looks awesome, by far the best setup I've seen with an Intex pool!
