Hello, I found the same pool at another store for $399.00, which is NOT cheaper than Wal - Mart. However, in the item description, it DOES list a ladder as an item INCLUDED. I am considering purchasing the same pool from Wal - Mart.

yes, i have saltwater system on it - but mind you it has to go through the regular filter which they do not tell you-- so be aware .. that you are not putting a pump away for emergencies -- you have to use 1 through the other or just the one that comes with it.

answer 3
I upgraded mine to saltwater from the get go. While I highly recommend salt over chemicals ( it really is much much better) the downside is that salt corrodes metal and after 2 seasons my frame seriously needed attention. I can't say for sure that the frame would have been rust free without the salt, but it's something to consider.

For this particular pool, the filter pump that comes with it works well with the salt water system. The water goes through the filter first, and then into the salt water chlorine generator before returning to the pool. It is a great system!

The pump just pumps water and filters. You need a salt water generator to convert the salt to chlorine . However the pump supplied works fine with the Intex Krystal Clear Saltwater Water Sanitizing System

Yes, it can be. That's the way we went with ours. You do however have to purchase another piece of equipment. With the pool itself, or at least with ours, there is a flyer of info about the Intex Saltwater System. The cost on it runs about $170 but the salt is alot cheaper and not to mention easier to deal with than all the chemicals in a "chlorine" pool.

You will need to buy a crystal clear saltwater generatorhttp://www.walmart.com/ip/Intex-Krystal-Clear-Saltwater-Water-Sanitizing-System/13224568

You connect it between the pump that comes with the pool and the pool return outlet. Everything you need to do this comes with the generator. Then you will need about 120-140lbs of pool salt which costs about $6 per 40lb bag

yes it has an attachment that hooks up to your water hose to a vaccum attachment with the supplied pole and creates a venturi and pushes debris into a small bag located on the back of the attachment. It will not pick up small stuff like sand and etc.

It comes with an adapter that you screw to your hose and then you remove the outside cap and screw on which then pushes the inner cap off which allows it to drain very slowly.

restarining rope

I need to replace the liner on my intex ultraframe. Intext want $352(including shipping, tax etc.) for a replacement liner, so buying a new pool makes more sense. This looks like the identical pool but some of the pictures don't show a restraining rope. Does it have one?
