I've been lurking around this forum for QUITE some time, and I'm loving it! Here's where I'm at.....
I'm a new pool owner (only 2nd season of owning). And I have an Intex metal frame 15x48 round pool (5000 - 5300 gallons). I've had numerous troubles with patching holes last year, so I'm actually going to try the method described in this thread http://www.troublefreepool.com/insta...e%20of%20intex, which I'm pretty excited about because I'm not having to buy a whole new pool or completely new Intex liner.
Anyway, in all my research, I've come across so many different philosophies on which filter pump to buy, and whether my current one (Krystal Clear Model 603 Filter Pump - very old) is under-powered. So, keeping in mind that I really am on a restricted budget (new baby on the way any day), as well as I'm ok with staying with a filter pumper rather than sand, I'm asking 2 main questions:
1.) Is this pump sufficient?
2.) If not, what would you all recommend that won't break the bank?
Thank you all for your patience!
