    Maybe the most overdone 10' intex around.

    thought i would share a little project that ive been working on for the past few weeks.
    i bought a intex 10'x30" above ground pool for me and my 4yr old daughter to play in the summer in.
    naturally i ordered a 2500gph pump (replaced stock 500gph pump) and also a saltwater chlorine generator.

    heres some pics of my build.









    Next project is replace those NASTY brickpavers that come off the back deck.
    My pool:
    15x30 inground concrete pool w/spa and spillover, all under screen enclosure
    Hayward C1200 StarClear Plus Cartridge Filter
    Jandy Laars LX400 propane heater w/120 gal above-ground tank
    Jandy AquaLink RS OneTouch controller w/PDA remotes and computer control
    JVAs control pool/spa switch and also allow drain opening
    Hayward Navigator

    Cool job! We started out with an intex pool for us and the kids in 2007 and used it until 2010. It was a lot of fun and we learned a lot from it. Of course, you've made yours look better than ours ever did. Our little intex bit the dust just as we were planning our inground pool installation. I always jokingly refered to our Intex as our "ghetto pool", but seriously, you can't beat the bang for the buck you get out of those Intex pools. In the end, all a pool really is is a hole in (or above) the ground that you pour water and money into.

    Build a fence around it to prevent accidents.

    That looks great. I just put up a 15' soft side. I happened across a bigger pump and filter, though not an Intex.
    Where did you get the external valves/fittings that the hoses connect to on the pool? Do they allow you to stop
    having to use the black plugs?

    We started out with an 18' foot one that we bought from Sam's Club and used it for several years. A couple of years ago after setting it up, my son was in it swimming and it popped! All the water came gushing out towards my house! I told my husband that was it.....time for an inground pool.
