    intex rectangular pool 12x24x52

    Hello I have been trying to get everything together that we might need to set our intex pool up. I wanted to know if its possible to put up wall foam and a cove on the rectangular shaped pool? I have the armour shield for the floor but I wasn't sure if I needed to order wall foam and a cove for it too? Thank you very much

    Welcome to TFP

    You are talking about this pool Intex 24 Rectangular Ultra Frame Swimming Pool - Walmart.com

    You can use the 3/4 inch wall foam board from lowes under it once the area is dug down to level, everything else comes with the pool

    no wall foam or cove needed

    Thank you very much. I also was wondering if I need to buy masonry sand? Also do you know what size pavers or pressure treated wood that I would need for the legs and which might be best to use. I understand that they need to be thick but I'm wondering what size to get all around for each one. thanks so much I really appreciate your help

    I do, I just bought some from lowes, we use to recommend the 1 inch but the oval pools break them in half Shop Cap Concrete Block (Common: 4-in x 8-in x 16-in; Actual: 3.625-in x 7.625-in x 15.625-in) at Lowes.com

    If the ground is flat and level and you use those foam sheets you don't "need" sand but you can use it if you want, it makes it much smoother under the foam..

    Re: intex rectangular pool 12x24x52

    Hi we decided not to put up the intex rectangular pool and are going to try to set up an above ground oval pool instead. I was wondering if we would still need the foam sheets that i had got for the intex pool and if i could still use the concrete pavers that i have? Do i need to get sand as well? This is all new to me and so thats why I keep asking questions. Im still trying to level the ground and its really difficult. Thank you for any advice you can give and for your help because i appreciate it

    You can use all the same stuff for your oval pool.. It is a harder to install pool but still the same concept..

    Re: intex rectangular pool 12x24x52

    I have 9 sheets of foam which was supposed to be for the 12x24 rectangle so now would i buy more to fit the floor of 18x33 and then have to cut it to fit around edges of the oval shape? What did i get myself into? I thought the oval one would be easier to install. Thank you for helping me.

    I am by no means saying it can not be installed DIY, it can be and people do it all the time... but most get them installed because it is not an easy project and if something goes south, you are the installer so you will have to figure out what to do and how something gets fixed...

    If an installer is doing it they are responsible for everything

    Okay thank you. I have the armour shield, foam board panels, cove and foam for the sides of the walls. So i wanted to know if I would still need to get some sand as well for the bottom? Thank you for your help.

    I did also use sand as it can help a little with leveling.. When you use the foam board you do not have to use sand..

    Hello, If i get sand to put under the foam panels could you please tell me what type would be best to buy. I was going to get it from lowes. I am unsure of what type to get though because I thought I read somewheres that I shouldnt use play sand. So i wanted to ask first to be sure. Thank you
