Hi all, I've been lurking the forums for a little bit and just recently got the Intex Ultra Frame 18x9 above ground pool, and have a couple of questions.
First one is ground related. We have steep slopes in our yard, and I've dug out as much as I am going to do this year, so my question is more related towards when I take it down. The pool is mostly level, at one end it is right around an inch off, not terrible in my opinion conisdering there was a > than 8" slope in the yard, and I had to dig it out by hand. We are going to leave it up and take it down right before fall, so my question is, should I level it the rest of the way, or will it not really matter?
The next question is about the sand filter that comes with it. Is the 1600 GPH one strong enough? I plan to add a saltwater system to it, but was wondering if I should just go ahead and get the 2650 GPH filter + saltwater kit together?
If that sand filter is good enough, what saltwater system would you guys reccommend? If I should upgrade the filter/pump as well, can you tell me the difference between these 2 kits?
Intex 2650 GPH Saltwater System & Sand Filter Pump Set | 28681EG (56681EG) $359.00
Intex 2800 GPH Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pool Pump & Saltwater System | 28647EG(56673EG) + 28661EG(54605EG) $293.95
From what I can tell, the first one is all in one, and the second one is 2 seperate systems. Which is better? Price wise the 2 seperate systems together is $60 cheaper, would that make it worth it?
I'm at work, so I'll try and answer any and all questions when I get a free moment. Thanks for any and all help in advance!!
