Well, we ended up not getting the metal sided pool after all. Will probably get one like that in a few years...so we went with a metal framed pool again and just got one at walmart. Dh didn't want to put up a better pool yet because he's not sure how long we will live here on his parents property. He'd rather do a more crappy pool. LOL Anyhow...we're still laying sand to make it more level and softer for the liner...but I know the pump/filter that comes with the Intex 24x52 round pool is junk. Its not going to filter the water at all.
I'm wanting to know what other pump/filter should I look at getting for it? I want something that will FILTER that water and actually MOVE the water...not just stir it around a little. Nothing outrageously priced..but nothing el cheapo either. Any suggestions????
