Hello all. Just joined the forum to get some expertise I am looking at buying the Intex 18' x 9' x 52" Ultra Frame pool from Wal-Mart. They currently have a package for $599 that includes a 1200gph Krystal Clear sand filter pump. I would also buy the Krystal Clear saltwater 15k gallon system to go with it. I've been doing research for several days now and I have a few questions.
- How good is this filter pump? Should I go ahead and order a stronger one like this? Intex Filter Pump | 16" Sand Filter | 2650 GPH Pump | 56671 Or just give the stock one a try?
- I have two siberian huskies that must have been seals in a previous life, so they WILL be in the pool alot. How tough is the material this pool is made out of? Is it dog friendly?
- As I won't have it near my deck at first, has anyone found a good set of stairs for entry/exit that will work with this pool? I've seen posts about the Confer Plastics but nothing definitive.
- In your opinion, is this a decent pool? I plan on putting alot of prep work into the ground area for the pool, so just want to know if you guys think it's a worthy investment
Thank you very much for any suggestions.
