    Unhappy Need Suggestions or Ideas for broken intex pins, please help!!!

    After getting our pool leveled and set up after 3 years of storing it, the pins that are used to connect and hold the T-legs are old and breaking.
    Intex website says "out of stock" , Amazon has them, but $18 for 6. We should replace all 38 of them. Any ideas where to buy them or suggestions for a diy?
    Don't know what to do at this point.

    I recently saw someone post this link for extra parts of intex pools. http://www.calsplash.com/intex-frame-pool-parts.html
    Hope this helps!

    I'd take a pin to the local mom-n-pop hardware store and ask the old codger what he has that will work. I suspect you'll end up with some stainless steel cotter pins for 50 apiece.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Thank you, I ended up ordering the replacement pins from Intex, their delivery time is quite slow. Won't be here until next Friday.
