    new to the group.

    My name is david and im in Melbourne Australia.... and its time i said hello to you all instead of using this ripper forum for just info.
    I have an AG
    intex ultra frame 6831g (i think) hard plumbed (not from inlets) a hyclor 1.5 hp pump with a 24" poseidon multiport sand filter plus a solar roof system which runs separate too the main filter and pump. My plumbing skills leave alittle to be desired but it works perfectly.
    Not sure yet how to post pics but will work on it shortly.
    My first reation is to bomb bard you guys with questions but i will refrain until ive introduced myself.
    By the way its 118f at the moment and the pool temperature is around 95f...hope that gives everyone a decent picture.

    Man I like how you did the 3 platforms up to your pool. That's pretty cool.
    It looks great!

    Smitty I will see about getting Laciegirl on here. She has done what you want to do. She should be able to tell you what and how.
