    Saltwater system for Easy Set 15 x 48 Intex?

    Thanks, Jeffchap. I'll pick up the recommended kit on Amazon I think. One other question, I'm currently running a fifty foot extension out to the filter and SWG from my spa GFCI outlet and put the outlet connections off the ground about four feet in a handy tree trunk--pretty much out of the...

    Saltwater system for Easy Set 15 x 48 Intex?

    So I purchased a lightly used Intex 8110 SWG from Craigslist and have it set up now.

    Thanks Jeff and Casey. Yes, the 637R came with the pool, so I'll use that for now and look at the Intex SWG. Right now I also need to get my CYA up, so I'm hearing I should use dichlor shock instead of liquid chlorine for awhile?

    Intex or Polygroup Pro (18x9 rectangle)? Help me decide

    Thanks, and quick update. We decided on the rectangular as it seemed to maximize using an area of our back yard and allow some lap swimming--but we're not dead set on it. I almost pulled the trigger to buy the Intex 9x18 from Home Depot. However, a little more web sleuthing showed several...

    Intex or Polygroup Pro (18x9 rectangle)? Help me decide

    Hi all, we've decided to put an 18x9x52 pool in our backyard to accommodate four active grandchildren. Planning to buy from Home Depot since we have a special offer with them right now. The 18 x 9 rectangular size is perfect for us and I was almost ready to order the Intex. Then my wife went...
