Hi, first let me say...I am so glad I found this site!
We purchased an Intex 15' round pool this year. Set it up according to the directions but it was about 5" unlevel. We were too nervous about it so we drained it. Now we are going to dig out the high side, and make sure it is level. Couple questions: should we put sand under the tarp/pool? I have read mixed reviews about this. How much sand? Do we need a gorilla pad, or can we wait until next year for that? Do we need to take the pool down every year? We live in Southeast PA. Do we need to put the feet of the pools on paver blocks (leveled of course)? Any tips would be appreciated. We are so frustrated with this so far, it has turned in to a major project. Also, now I am seeing that I will probably need a better filter?? What do you suggest for that?
