I have recently finished setup my first pool. Intex 16 X 48 ultra frame pool. After all the permits and way too much money it's finally approved and ready to go . This is the first weekend the water is a good temp (low 80s) and it will be near 90 (outside) for the next several days.
My question is do you need the rope on the bottom of the leg that the instructions say is optional? I have done a fair amount of reading on here and I have seen that some people use ratchet straps. I don't care either way. We have only gotten in the pool a few times (very light use) I'm just concerned that after my oldest (10) and teenage brother-in-laws splash around there might be some movement. Has anyone NOT done the rope or straps? How did it turn out?
