    Rope on intex

    Just setup my intex 22x52 ultra frame and there is no rope or loops for one ? Should there be one ? I know they instructions say optional but the picture shows it in place even the video shows it ?

    Look through some older threads where this has been discussed. I had the same qualms about the newer UF without a rope, so I strung four tie-down straps about the legs just above the feet and tightened the whole thing up.

    Thank you for the response ! I found a few post with some info about it . Did you put the straps on before or after you filled the pool ?

    After, I think. If you've already filled and the legs are still fairly plumb but you're concerned about them moving out later, you could still do something like this. As kids splash water around and the legs try to kick out, keep checking for tightness.
