We just recently bought an Intex ultra frame 22'x52" above ground pool. It came with a regular pump, but we purchased a sand filter pump.
We live in southeast Missouri. I teach 7-8 keyboarding and computers at a small public school. We love watching St. Louis Cardinals baseball, Kentucky Wildcats basketball, KC Chiefs Football and NASCAR.
Since I am off during summer months, we decided to get a pool this year. I have a masters in Education, but I don't even have a 1st grade education in anything related to this pool. The manuals that came with our pool and pump are vague. I need some serious education in pool ownership! I'm so glad I found this site!
1. My pool didn't come with any type of skimmer, do I need one?
2. Have a sand filter pump-thought I didn't need any chemicals-think I'm wrong?
3. What about chemicals??
4. Have no idea how to hook up my manual vacuum???
5. Anyone interested in helping a stressed Cardinals fan in MO?
