Thread: White belt around middle of pool

    White belt around middle of pool

    My son and I put up our pool and made sure the legs were inside the rope along the bottom of the pool - got the pool full this morning and realized we did NOT put the legs on the inside of the white belt going around the middle of the pool!! Besides draining the pool and starting over, any suggestions? I'm assuming the legs need to be inside of the belt for support (we had the legs inside the belt last year). Would a pseudo band made of duct tape around the outside of the pool hold the legs in or is that wishful thinking? Our pool is 22x52. Thanks much!

    Welcome to TFP
    If it was me I would bite the bullet and drain the pool
    Better to do it the right way than to invite disaster to come by and say hello

    That's what I was afraid of - I tried Bungee cord but don't feel comfortable doing that. It makes more sense to drain and start over...grrrr... oh well! The joy of summer!

    All it takes is one missed step to make a do-over.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    If you have the new style belt as pictured below, then you are OK to leave the legs as pictured. This was how mine came from Intex and how it was pictured in the instructions. Although, nowhere did they specifically say which way they should go

    If you have the old style belt without the leg loops then I do believe you need to have the legs inside the belt.

    Good Luck!
