Hello everyone, new to this pool thing, we bought a 9X18 Intex Ultra XTR above ground pool. We moved here in East Tennessee to retire and we wanted to enjoy the weather in the pool. Never had a real pool (had the kiddie type) but one that has a pump etc. I watched a YT video that mentioned this forum site and that she used it to do some upgrades. We are waiting delivery of our new pool, and then the weather to start setting it up. Looking forward to all the wealth of information to make this pool thing a blast to have.
