I am about to set up my first AGP and have been lurking for a while in the forums. I need help sorting out all my confusion over upgrading the simple filter that comes with the pool to a SWG. There are a bunch of different versions you can buy, like an all in one or I can get a SWG and use the original filter but everyone seems to like the upgraded sand one. I just don't know which one to get and why.
Also, I'm a tinker-er and am planning on setting up some point in the future passive water heater. I'm not worried about the temp in the middle of a North Texas summer, but I want to extend the pool season before summer starts. I assume this will affect the size pump and filter from my confusion above.
Any help, suggestions, digs, and general comments are appreciated.
