Hello - First time posting here and first time pool owners. We are awaiting the arrival of our 9'x18'x52" Intex Ultra Frame pool. I have already purchased the salt water system, but in reading some threads regarding the sand pump, I am wondering if we should upgrade from the 1200GPH that comes with the pool to a larger sand pump. Any recommendations? Or should we see how the included pump handles the pool? We are also going to begin the leveling process by framing out 13'x22' tarping over the existing ground then adding sand then tarp over sand for pool base. Any recommendations on sand type? Can regular sand be used if we tamp it down, or should another sand be used? Also - we live in FL and pool will be up year-round - any helpful comments on additional maintenance?
Sorry for all the questions - just want to have all the proper information before we start the project! Any deck ideas and pictures would be helpful too!
