I just have a little 10' above ground pool, that's about 4 feet deep, and I mostly just let the dogs romp around in it in the summer. The pool I have is just a cheap Summer Escapes Pool that I got at Big Lots last year. I have not set it up yet this year... I tore the whole thing down last winter and stored the liner and everything in the basement.
Last year the pump that came with the pool would often stop, and we tended to have a mosquito breeding problem in the pool, which is just gross. And when I got out of town in the summer, which I do for long weekends, my husband forgets to check the pool to make sure the pump is still working.
So I was thinking maybe to invest in a good $100 or so pump that would be reliable and not go out, keep the water and chlorine moving around, so we don't breed mosquitoes and get algae this year.
Been looking around the forums but haven't found something that I'm looking for. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. The pool is usually up for only 3 or 4 months of the year.
