    intex 16ftx32ftx52in install

    It is finally official. The new pool shows up next week.

    Even though we did the leveling for our 16ft round intex by ourselves, I decided to hire someone with a bobcat to do the grading for this one.

    He will be out on Saturday morning. I cant wait to get the foam board & support blocks down so we can get the pool up before it gets any warmer.

    Pics to come

    thanks
    Just got the call from the freight company.. Pool will be delivered Monday.
    Unfortunately forecast calls for rain tomorrow. Hopefully it holds off long enough to get the grading done

    unfortunately to much rain today. We have a lot of clay in our soil. Even with tracks installed, the bobcat was slipping too much to do any digging. Maybe monday..

    Moomin - good luck with the leveling

    Re: intex 16ftx32ftx52in install

    I will be using something similar to 1 inch thick patio pavers that will be flush with the ground/sand..
    I learned with our first Intex pool, you have to have something under the legs no matter how solid you think your ground is.

    I will have a lot of leveling to do this weekend. There are a couple spots where the contractor messed up & is about 2-3in out of level.
    But that is better than it was. Before he came out some spots were 11in out of level

    i probably should go thicker, but I dont feel like digging that deep to put them in. Keep us updated on your progress

    rectangular intex & using a thru wall skimmer

    I have seen a lot of people using a thru wall skimmer on the round intex pools.
    I purchased one for my new install, but as I said in a previous post have now bought one of the rectangular intex pools.

    From all of the pics of the round pools with the thru wall skimmer mod I am aware you need to mount the skimmer below the seam line.
    This also drops the height of the water level.

    With the rectangular intex, the walls stay bowed in until the water level reaches a certain level.

    Does anyone have experience with the rectangular & a thru wall skimmer?

    If it is determined this can not be done due to the walls bowing in, what are your thoughts on me running 2 of the intex surface skimmers at the same time?
    Would there be any benefit to that?

    Re: rectangular intex & using a thru wall skimmer

    Hi sorry to interject on your post but I'm in the same situation. Not only do I have the same questions but also want to see will the Skimmer door even work due to the fact that it will sit at an inward angle due to the angle of the wall.
