    *hello! new to the forum*

    ]Hello! I just registered, & now I'm introducing...
    Just put up a easy set Frameset INTEX last night (12 by 30. )
    About to go put the pump on and start the water.
    I am going to read through Pool school, and peruse for tips or posts about running two filter pumps.
    we had a 12 by 30? Quickset with the inflatable ring last summer, great fun, but developed slow leaks in the ring I could never locate at the end of summer. & I still have it's pump that sits out on the ground beside the pool & new A filters.
    The easy set I just put up has a attached to pool a skimmer type filter pump with the little tiny filter (b?).
    I'm thinking my pool would be 2x as clean if I can run them both, just looking for others experience before trying anything!
    Looking forward to learning what I can from everyone!

    Welcome to TFP the inflatable ring does not handle the suns uv rays well at all as dumb as it sounds you need to use vinal sunblock on it (it actually says that in the directions)lol.
    The filter that came with your new pool looks like a skimmer (correct me if i am wrong)
    If you want to use both i think you will need two suction ports. Using them in line wouldnt work i dont think.

    Thanks for the welcome! I'm still reading through the forum topics, there's so many! - but I thought I might have to do them separately, based on a a couple posts I've read about it so far here.
