    Sand pump dies it need chemicals added to water?

    We have just got a intex sand filter pump and I see nothing about if chemicals are also needed to add to the water? Any help would be great

    All you've done is upgrade the pump and filter - it's still the same water and has the exact same needs it always had. The filter will not remove algae, if that's what you were hoping for.

    Do you have a test kit? Can you post readings? How does the water look?

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
