    If you stay with the Intex plumbing, you will be limited to the 59" hoses they supply. When you decide to hard plumb, you can have our pump, filter, and SWG wherever you want, as long as it is below 1/2 the pool water level. Higher than that, Intex pumps don't like to self prime.

    Salt water in intex pool can really affect the frame... Salt is very corrosive, there are a few posts on here showing the rust.... I have the exact same pool....
