Hello. Im new here and new to pools. Wife and I have always wanted one, now have new house with space. This is what i am wanting to purchase:
Intex 18x48 Ultra Frame Above Ground Pool
Intex Saltwater system
Here are my questions:
After reading some on the chemical pool treatments, I have read alot about the ease of the saltwater filtration. This pool will come with the pump and filter cartridges (which im told by many I will come to hate in no time) so, if i go with the saltwater filtration, then will I still have to use the cartridge filters?
Secondly, other than than adding pool salt, monitoring pH, algae control and skimming and vaccuuming, is there any other regular maintenance I will need to perform with this system?
Will this pool be big enough for my family of 6 consisting of 2 adults, a 14 year old, a 9 year old, 10 year old, and 2 year old?
what else do i need to know about this pool or owning / maintaining this pool.
