I just got an Intex Easy Set 10' x 30" it seems the perfect size to sit in with my 2yr old daughter. A few years ago I had a 15' x 48" and added the saltwater system, so far I think it still works. I was hoping to use the old bigger bump (1,000 GPH?) but it doesn't seem to work. I'm not impressed with the new one 500GHP? it came with, and hardly seems to move the water. I'd also like to make some sort of fountain to help cool it since I'm sure it's going to get warm here shortly.
I'm wondering if the sand filter would be way too big/powerful on this little pool (~1,000 gal). I know it's overkill, but wouldn't mind a larger one again in a few years if it'll last and won't have to mess with cartridge filters in the meantime. If it's not worth it, does the little pump still have sufficient flow for the SWG?
