    Intex Pool Placement Help

    Hi! I'm brand new here! I purchased an Intex 14x48 Ultra Frame Pool. We live in New England and our lot is large,sloped and mostly shaded by mature trees. We have a septic system and well on the property. The only flat/sunny area we have is approx 21x18 feet directly behind our house and next to our deck. We planned on putting the pool there, but I have concerns that it could be too close to the house. If we put the pool as far from the house as possible, it will be about 3 feet from the house. Is that generally acceptable?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    I have the same problem with trees/shade. Ours sits fairly close to the house and I would think placing yours by the deck then later you could expand your deck around it

    I always try to find a way lol I spent last weekend trimming tree branches up 22 feet

    I loved my shady tree filled lot until I wanted a pool! I'm hoping that we love having the intex and in a couple of years we will hopefully put up a more permanent AGP. The deck will have to wait until then, but I like the way you think....

    when we decide to go for broke and get the big above ground with deck... those trees are coming down.... I have way to many and half my acreage is like an usuable forest... the usable part of my yard has 13... yes 13 to be removed Will save that for the much larger project LOL

    I am a pool baby.. .I love being in water during the summer - I think you will enjoy having it after the pain of getting it set up and taken care of

    I have my Intex about 3 feet from the house (full basement underneath). The only problem is the kids splashing water out of the pool and through the open bathroom window!
