    Question New pool project.. help needed..

    So Im looking at buying a Buster Crabbe Aquasport round 24' pool. I have a sloped back yard and wish to put inground on the uphill side.
    Here is the package..

    24' round
    uni beed liner
    pool steps for deck
    light and timer
    solar cover
    vacuum kit
    pool armor mat, wall foam, and adhesive.
    start up chemicals
    extra skimmer and return
    Blue torrent bond master 1.5hp pump
    choice of
    Filter systems by Blue torrent
    Sand filter 19"
    Cartridge filter 90 sq/ft
    DE Cartridge filter 75 sq/ft

    not sure what filter system to go with..
    my buddy recommends sand, the pool installer says cartridge, and the pool sales guy says go with DE system. I don't know what to go with..
    My pool installer recommended an extra skimmer and return, 300$ extra, not sure its worth it??

    Any suggestions

    Thanks in advance.

    What fun! I love my sand filter. It is very easy to clean and does a good job keeping the water nice. The DE will polish the pool a little better but is more work to care for to me.

    I would get the extra return but skip the extra skimmer.

    I also believe sand filters are overall best. Never replace anything under normal conditions. Just an occasional backwash. Can always add de to it for the extra polish without the work of a de filter.
    Extra drains are great. Extra skimmer if located poorly can disrupt skimming action and cause stagnant pockets
