    Would someone please help me with my intex pool

    I was given a intex pool oval frame 24'x12" My problem is I am supposed to use 4 pressure treated wood boards size 15"x15"x1.2 for wall support..I have gone to home depot and lowes they don't make it in that size.. Is there anything else I could use instead?

    Is that measured in inches, mm, or?

    A piece of wood that wide would a glue-up, or plywood, or cost more than the pool itself! My guess would be centimeters. Which would make it about 6x6x½ inches. Probably be easier to find a short piece of pressure treated 2x6 and saw off the pieces you need. Or 2x8.

    Turns out it is inches! At least according to the manual http://www.intexcorp.com/index.php/home ... l?manual=1

    If you open that link, the manual is #3 in the left column. There's also a video you can watch, in the right column. You may also use concrete pavers. [attachment=0:38a3vsxb]intex.gif[/attachment:38a3vsxb]

    And this is the very last thing I shall post in this thread.

    Have you considered the concrete stepping stones? I know they come in different lengths and widths. From the looks of the diagram, I would just measure the width of the frame piece that will be sitting on it, and just improvise with either a 2x10 or 2x12. Just take your measurements to either a local lumber yard (most will cut the sizes you need for free if you don't have the tools to do it yourself) or to one of the big box stores and they should be able to help you rig something up!

    While 15" is hard to find, 1.2" is best known as 5/4 (five/quarter) commonly decking lumber thickness.
