    First off, welcome to TFP. We have lots of people here with input in one way or another.

    As far as the pool, I would not want to risk keeping it up in the winter. They get quite brittle in the cold and it seems thats where any problems with the Intex products come from - winter storage.

    Advice? I would suggest reading the stickies first for balancing the pool water. Congrats on your nice pool and have fun!

    Hello and welcome to TFP! Only advice I can give besides what Mom gave is if your pool came with the pump/filter that uses the paper cartridge filters, go buy several of them now while they're available. Come near the end of the season, you'll be hard pressed to find any. Also, unless they've changed their pump/filter sizing since I had one, plan on running your pump alot.
