The outlet from the skimmer on the pool goes to the pump inlet (center part of the pump). The pump outlet goes to the filter inlet. The filter outlet goes to the return to the pool.

Do I hook up just the pool filter for 24 hours and then hook the intex salt walter filter onto the pump?

When you are opening the pool each year or for the 1st time, you hook up the filter pump and than the Salt System before you start filtering the salt... Eventhough you filter the freshly added Salt into the pool for the 1st 24hrs, it can run through the salt system, just don't turn it on like you mentioned... The trick is once you start running the salt system is to get the chlorine levels up as quick as you can... I have not mastered this yet after 3 years but I will consult my Local Pool Chemical Supplier next year before opening the pool... So I think you should do the same...

Good Luck...
