Just got the Intex 18'X48" Ultra Frame Swimming Pool and already have plans to add a through the wall skimmer, fountain and new pump with a saltwater chlorine generator. I have been doing a lot of reading and think I have most of this figure out but would like to make sure.
For the pump I will be going with this Amazon.com: Intex 120V Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pump Garden
Will I be okay with the 1500 GPH or do yall recommend the 2150 GPH model? I am thinking the 1500 GPH should be okay.
I assume this pump comes with 1.5" hoses and new wall fittings. If not and it comes with 1.25" then I will need 4 1-1/4 inch Cantex conduit box adaptors so that I can run 1.5" hard pipe. Or should I get larger wall fittings?
For the skimmer I plan to go with the Hayward SP1091LX through the wall skimmer http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002DPY196/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER. Is this meant for 1.5" or 1.25" pipe?
Now for the plumbing and the fountain. I want to run the the old suction port and skimmer like this
And the fountain like this but only with a second ball valve between the fountain and return fitting.
Thank you for the help.
