    Close pool?

    I purchased a used pump off eBay without the SWCG. I hook it up in the winter and run it 2 hours a day and just dose with bleach as needed.

    Cloudy Water

    Without test results it is hard to advise you. You can start by reading http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-school/shocking_your_pool and running the pump to filter 24/7 You really need a good test kit when trying to maintain your pool.

    Need helping choosing new pool...resin/steel/hybrid?!?

    I have been thinking of the Cozumel due to the fact that its warranted for SWCG use. The Matrix I believe is salt water approved also but I need to check my notes. I'm still doing some research before deciding, but it wont be this summer.

    Intex Easy Set Skimmer/Pump questions

    I use the Intex Deluxe vac and am happy with it. I never buy filters I just wash and reuse. If I'm having people over I bring pool to shock level and again after they are gone.

    Intex Easy Set Skimmer/Pump questions

    Welcome to the forum :wave: You will do fine with the 1600 sand filter and just get an over the wall skimmer. As the air temp changes the skimmer will change positions on the pool so I would use one of the mods I've seen on the forum to make it more stationary...

    Daily storage of Intex debris cover ??

    There was a post recently where the poster used PVC strapped to the pool legs for the solar cover, looked really good. Don't see any reason why it couldn't be used for the cover.

    Is intex pump adequate?
