So glad I found this site! We've had an 18x9x52 Intex Ultraframe pool for several years and never been able to swim in it! Bought several years ago for disabled husband, took a few years to get help to put up, then another few to exchange the POS ladder for a locking one. Had hoped to put up a deck with access stairs but alas....So I read today about putting in a through the wall skimmer. We have a salt generator and a sand filter to replace the one that came with the pool (killing me trying to buy those paper cartridges) and its still not clean. Sorry for the long backstory.
So, any caveats to hooking up the sand filter? Do I need to drain the pool to put in the through the wall skimmer or can I just take the water level down?
Thanks in advance,
