I just bought a house with a pool - my best estimate is 17000-19000 gallons. I have a wisperflow/extreme e 1.5 hp pump with a 24'' hayward sand filter. I just installed the filter. I have been reading multiple post involving the intex setup, but have not found any definitive answers involving the setup for an inground pool. I have had pools my entire life- my parents recently converted to salt and swear by it. But I am not in the market for a $1000+ setup. This seems like a cost effective option. I have a couple of questions. I am not too concerned about the actual plumbing aspect.
My first question is do I need two units for this size pool? If so a diagram would be great. I am in south Louisiana so without the correct chlorine in gets green quick. Second, do they consume that much power? Some post and reviews mention high electric bills - Is it really a concern? What else do I need to be aware of? Thanks in advance. Really glad I found the forum.
