I just bought a 14'x42' ProSeries pool on clearance for $100. I'd love to try it out but I live in Connecticut and Fall is pretty much here. Ideally I would prefer a 12'x16' or 18' oval pool as we have a small yard and there is only one place to put a pool as the rest has a septic tank and leech field underneath. Unfortunately oval pools are significantly more expensive as I'm not interested in the intex inflatables. I'm interested in getting some type of solar heater, not sure what is best for these types of pools?
I have never owned a pool and I'm not sure what is involved in setting it up. Is it too late to set up the pool? Do people leave these types of pool up for the winter or do they take them down every year?
Also it seems like people upgrade the filters, is the one that comes with the pool sufficient?
The specs on the pool are:
holds 3300 gallons
SkimmerPlus 1000 filter pump with GFCI
Includes pool cover and ground cloth
