Hi everyone. I have read the Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools and many other posts. This is quite the helpful place! And a lot of nice pools out there, wow.
Two weeks ago we got an inflatable above ground ring quick set pool of 8' across by 30" deep.
This is about 600 gallons. It is not 100% full but maybe 25" deep.
Still plenty of depth and the perfect size to cool off and practice their skills a bit. Our children are now 7, 5, & 4, so we've graduated from the baby wader pools.
It was a great deal, $25. We weren't planning to have a pool of any size at our house, but here we are.
However, this pool does not have a filter pump.
I've gotten the testing kit and supplies from the ol' Evil Empire (aka WalMart) and have been able for the two weeks we've had it up and filled to keep things within appropriate levels.
My question is, can one add a filter pump to this kind of pool?
Should i just continue doing my best without it?
Any advice on the best way to stir things in without it??
We got a long handled skimmer and cover that we are using regularly. This is in coastal South Carolina, so it's hot and plenty sunny on the pool site.
Thanks in advance!
