Just ordered a pool online over the weekend, the 15' x 48" Intex metal side one.
At first I wasn't sure we should get a pool because of the maintenance it'll require. But our house outside Austin, TX already has a 20' x 20' empty concrete slab in the backyard and these 100 degree days won't quit.
So it should arrive next week and I'm headed to the Pool School part of the forum to learn about what to do.
Hope to learn a lot, this forum seems great. I found the site after Googling, "What filter for Intex Krystal Clear Cartridge" since many seem to be on clearance now. Sounds like I can just rinse it for a while. Now to learn about chlorine/salt/sand and all that....
