    New to the forums

    Hi ! I bought a intex 16x48ultra frame and installedand filled it up before finding this forum. LOL So you an imagine what happened to me. One side of the pool started sinking in so i started empting it out and looking for help on the web. I have it taking down atm. My question is should i let the pool dry completely and put baby powder on it and fold it back up until I get the ground leveled? I saw a post somewhere about putting powder so the sides dont stick together.

    Welcome to tfp, Sugarme

    I wouldn't think it would stick together, but I am not sure. Hopefully someone who knows will chime in

    If it is only going to be several days to a week it really doesn't matter very much.
