    Intex U supports buckled and I need ideas how to replace

    Hi all, I just had a bad storm which caused the ground to shift and the 12x12 paving stone to crack which caused my Intex U Support to buckle. I am looking for possible replacement ideas so I can avoid having this happen again. Thank you all
    I Have an Intex 9x18x52 Ultra Frame pool with an Intex 14 inch sand filter, a Hayward 1hp pump and a Intex Crystal Clear Salt Water system.

    1. Order a new leg
    2. Empty the pool
    3. Fix it and fill it again

    I'm afraid that's the only way.

    Good luck!

    In this link you can see what happened to my legs when I filled the pool for the first time. This is a Belgian forum in Dutch language so I don't think you can read it but you can see the pics. Breaking of the legs was due to a small brick that didn't give enough support. The forces are tremendous!

    I looked at the pictures,
    seemed like the brick was placed the wrong way. Only 1/3 of the leg was on the brick, the rest was hanging in the air.

    I saw a post from a person that had the same problem and they designed their own leg supports out of emt conduit. I would really like to reach out to that person and see what dimensions they used. I am new to this and would really like to contact Hairsprayed. Any guidance is appreciated.

    Youre absolutely right heikejohn. Didn't know the forces were like that with the result shown. Now I'm using patio tiles. (Is this the right name.) They are ok!
