Hello Senior Members,
We are first timers and clueless about everything. Could the senior members please write up a list of the basic equipment needed for a smooth running pool in a 16 X 32 size and mention the best brands and sizes to look for. I know our pool builder will have a standard set up that they like to use for their cost efficiency, but we may want upgrade some things like filters, pumps, vacuums etc. We want the equipment to be right and as trouble free as possible. We don't know the difference between cartridge and DE and many others keywords we are seeing here. We are getting a SWG for sure and don't know what that means for us as far as effecting or changing the types of equipment we need. We really don't even know what all equipment it takes to run a pool. If experienced members could make a list here or point us to the best forum areas to find this information we'd really appreciate you!
