Sooo happy to have found this awesome website!!
Last year we were given an intex 18'x48" AG pool and got hooked! The original pump that came with it was quite insufficient, but we decided to stick with it for one season.
This year, we decided to upgrade to a intex 32x16 AG . I am getting more informed and would like to get some advice on a few things:
- is the sand filter pump that comes with it big enough?
-does it come with a SWG ? I find conflicting answers for that one... Is there different models/packages for that pool? Im not sure...
-we had the deluxe skimmer that attaches to the wall on the smaller pool and i hated it! I am strongly considering putting a hayward widemouth skimmer in right away. I read threads regarding this and some people install it after the pool is filled(they didn't want to empty their already filled pool)some people do it before hand... Which one is better? Should I install it as we set up the pool?
- we are having the ground leveled professionally, i the was thinking about buying the gorilla ground cloth... Is this even necessary? I know the pool comes with a cheap ground cloth...
Ok, i can't think of anything else for now, thanks in advance for your help!!
