    New pool owner 16 x42 intex how to keep clean

    Hi we got a used intex pool 16 x42 has regular pump and after 2 weeks went green , we don't have vacuum.
    We are planning to get the salt water system and the sand pump.

    We check prices and walmart and intex Krystal clear saltwater filter pump 2150 for 168 dollar
    And Krystal clear saltwater system 15 ,000 gls for 123 Dollar

    Is that all we need or do we still need to buy vacuum and skimmer?

    Sorry we really don't know anything about it!!! Our friends give us the pool and we used shock and so much that my husband tried with homemade filters that it was a mess and after 2 weeks on working it went worse.

    Thank you so much

    Welcome to TFP

    I'm not an intex expert. For them you need to post to the Above Ground Pool section.

    You have a big pool. Its more than 15000 gallons.

    With that size pool you need a vacuum. A skimmer would be good to have too.

    I think you need a skimmer to use an intex vacuum but I'm not sure.

    Intex uses their own hoses and fittings so you may need those too.
