Hello! First post here, be gentle. I'm also completely new to pool ownership. I'm going through a divorce and want to contain water activities to the backyard this year so I don't have to try to manage my kids at our club pool on my own. The 3-year old is a wild one.
I bought a 12 x 30 Intex Metal Frame pool and hope to set it up this weekend.
--What model sand filter pump do I need to get? I see that there are several types of Intex filters, but I am not sure which size I will need.
--Do I need to purchase a skimmer, and if so, what kind? I see there's a wall-mounted skimmer by Intex--will this work on the size pool I have?
--Is there a list on the forum somewhere of "Above-Ground Pool Must Haves?" My somewhat-distracted search did not yield any results.
Thank you so much!
