Looking to upgrade my "baby pump" to something more substantial so I can add an in-wall skimmer and get more suction with our pool vacuum. The person selling say it was just used one summer. Hayward Power Flo (1hp) and a "Vari Flow", though I think that refers to the valve, not the actual sand filter?
They're asking $150 for the pump and filter, I'm hoping to get $100 if it's a good deal.
What else would I be looking at cost wise? Would I need to PVC pipe the whole pool? Or would this work with the stock intake and return on the pool for now? I won't add the in-wall skimmer till later. Anything else I should know or think through?
What should I checkout on the filter/pump to insure that they are in good working order?
