Hello all. New member here and this is my first post.
We have decided to get an INTEX 18' x 52" Ultra Frame Swimming Pool Set w/ Sand Filter Pump & Saltwater System| 54957EG for this summer. It comes with a 1600 GPH saltwater sand filter combo pump. Is this sufficient or do I need to upgrade (and to what)?
It also comes with a hand held skimmer & vacuum, 52" ladder, debris cover, and a ground cloth. We'll be purchasing pool steps to use instead of the ladder, a solar cover, and a Gorilla pad. Should I get a heavy duty tarp to use instead of the provided ground cloth? What other upgrades should I consider?
I also read the tips on using Styrofoam sheets, and treated wood instead of pavers, but the rest is a foreign language to me. Please educate me and help me understand what I am doing!
