    New Install - Intex Ultra Frame 32' x 16' x 52" AG Pool

    First of all many thanks to all who contribute to this site which helped avoid many potential mistakes I would have made during this install and several modifications that I never would have considered such as adding the thru-wall skimmer!!

    Gorilla Pad layer over the insulation....probably overkill but I had ordered this before I discovered the insulation tip

    Treated 2" x 16" x 16" (2x8s connected with clips) boards over the concrete pads. I had to dig out to move the blocks against the insulation. Initially I used the Intex dimensions but the legs were only a couple of inches on the blocks. During this dig I recalled reading on this site about the installing the blocks "butted against" the insulation. I had 24 opportunities to kick myself for not recalling that vital piece of information.

    Pump return connections....all piping is 1-1/2"

    20140607_164634.jpg

    Skimmer piping on the opposite side of the pool from the returns

    20140607_164557.jpg

    Fountain in action.....another great idea I found here!

    20140608_201006.jpg

    1" Piping for fountain

    20140607_164648.jpg

    Odds and ends left to do but after 2-1/2 long days of work (ground prep was done off and on during the 2 wk period waiting for the pool to arrive)

    Finally ready to enjoy

    I love that pool..... I only wish I had the room for the biggest one we could get... You've done excellent prep work to get the foundations level, not an easy thing to do with a pool this large... Take note big Intex pool owners, this is how its done...

    Re: New Install - Intex Ultra Frame 32' x 16' x 52" AG Pool

    Thanks for the comments CeeElGee and laceygirl.

    Over the past 10 years we started with the Intex blow up ring pool which lasted a season as the kiddos were young. Upgraded to a Intex 15 ft round pool which lasted about 3 yrs and would have made it longer but it was setup with only the supplied equipment and ground cover originally, again kiddos outgrew the size.

    Decided to go with this setup and hope to get 4 to 6 yrs out of it or more.

    A deck is in the future for sure...

    Looks fantastic! You really have me wishing we had gone with the 16x32 instead of the 12x22 now

    Additional dimensions that may help with the layout preparing for installation...

    The insulation base is 32' x 16'. The support legs around the pool extend 7" out from the insulation pad.

    The centerline distance between the long side supports is 45"
    The centerline distance between the short side supports is 42"

    Hi there. Could you measure the space from the corner to the edge of the first brace and between the braces down the width and the length for me please? Cheers

    From the corner to the edge of the first brace on the long side is 27", 45" between the braces measured at the centerline.

    From the corner to the edge of the first brace on the short side is 23", 42" between the braces measured at the centerline

    The support braces are 20" wide outside edge to outside edge.

    Re: New Install - Intex Ultra Frame 32' x 16' x 52" AG Pool

    So, if I go from where I mark the corner of the pool will be I go over 27" and lay the first board and 23" the other way and lay the first board?

    Correct, using a 32' x 16' layout.

    Just keep in mind that the braces are 20" wide and you will need to determine where the center of your pad will be. If you are using a 16" pad as I did you would need to start the edge of the first board on the long side at 29" and the short side at 25".

    Cool exactly what I needed to know. I am using 16' x 16' x 4' trailer pads. I know 4' may be overkill but we have weird ground where I live and some on here said the 2' cracked. Rather be on the safe side. I bury them even with the pad not the ground right? If the padding is 1" then bury 3" in the ground?

    Ok. Thank you very much that's interesting thanks. The braces on the 32' X 16' are narrower at 20" (508mm) than the braces on the 24' X 12' at 520mm (20 15/32"). I wonder why?

    pncsmith. Would it be possible for you to take a measurement at the top rail of your pool, taken from the outside of the poles of two adjacent braces? I have attached a pic of where to take it. I could calculate it from your measurements but it might not be a mm/fractional inch accurate calculation.
