    Temporary Intex Take Down

    Hey Guys...

    I'm having a concrete slab/patio poured in the backyard (about 20 x 70) to extend our outside living area and as place to set my 12 x 24 Intex (Actually, after one year of having a pool, I'm contemplating an upgrade to 16 x 32 . And surprise, surprise, the concrete area will be big enough for that as well!) My question is, If I empty and take apart the pool carefully, fold it nicely and place all the components onto a large enough tarp, and then cover everything really well to keep it out of the sun, the weather,and the dogs, do you think I can leave it there in the yard for a couple weeks while the concrete cures? Contractor says maybe 2 weeks...

    I'm sure I haven't thought this through . So.....

    What sayeth all ya'll?

    I've heard of mice damaging them so maybe store the liner in a plastic tote.

    I did that very thing to move my 24ft round Ultra Frame back in the yard 10ft. Just be sure you don't trap debris under the liner when placing it back. I have a few grass clumps between my liner and the nice smooth foamboard. Oh well.
