I currently run a separate pump for my solar panels, an old pool intex pump, connected through an over the side PVC setup homebrew. It works well, but looks like **** and it's jsut one more thing for the kids to bump into.
I'm wondering if I should just use the setup that they recommend, running the filter pump water through them instead? Less plumbing, can control with one timer, and it'll look nicer.
Suggestions? My other option would be to add new bulkhead fittings for the plumbing and do it that way. It's an 18' 52" intex metal frame pool.
