    Extreme makover intex ultraframe pool addition

    Thanks to some awesome ideas and plans from you guys i'm about start an extreme makeover on an intex pool like never seen on this forum. I cant stand how the ultraframe pool looks so I'm wrapping the frame with bamboo fencing, hard-plumbing the filters using methods in this forum, and adding a pool Nanny cam. I will photo document the project and give lists of parts throughout the project

    Keep us up dated with pics. I'm sure other ultraframe owners will be interested.

    Is that your filtration and chlorination? I like your adapting the Intex to the inline chlorinator. Not a fan of the undersized cartridge filter. Way to much maintenance required with those filters since they are so small. Can't wait to see the pool wrapped up in bamboo I was thinking of doing the same to mine. Do you take your pool down for winter?

    Re: Extreme makover intex ultraframe pool addition

    I am upgrading from an inflatable 15 ft intex to the 16 ft ultra frame. this filter vortexes a 15 ft x48 ft and is rated at 2500 gph its not the 1500. I figure use it since i already have it. Also i have tons of pictures to show more progress however i guess i'm at my max for pictures here. whats a recommended place to archive pictures so i can post here. I will be posting the parts list via lowes recipt for fittings. I don't plan on taking it down at all once its up in Southern Louisiana it seldom gets below freezing

    I just use photobucket and use a pubic album with posted link. You will find alot of useful info here. I upgraded my filter/pump to the intex sand. best thing I ever did. that chlorinator use the pucks? if so do you do a drain and fill every season?
