    The new pool arrives tomorrow

    Well I got a call last night from the trucking company and they said they can deliver the 32'X16' intex pool between 3 and 5 PM wow that was fast. I'm waiting on a couple quotes for concrete slabs before I do any thing any advice on the pool would be greatly appreciated ?


    Thanks

    Invest in a Hayward Skimmer too. It was the best decision I ever made. I bought this one: http://www.amazon.com/Hayward-SP1091...ayward+skimmer
    I also invested in the foam pads to go under mine too. Makes it feel like you are walking on cotton. Look at hard piping your pump and filter. Consider a better ladder. Just a few of my suggestions.

    I just got the bid for the concrete about $3,700 . He called me just a few minutes ago and talked me out of the the slab . and we are thinking about just doing pads where the legs are 24 total ?

    Re: The new pool arrives tomorrow

    What is the question? Number of legs? Necessary thickness of pads? Pour pads on site vs. using purchased blocks (as many posters seem to do when installing such a pool)?

    I know I've seen threads on the forum discussing many of these issues, including some threads giving the exact dimensions of where the legs touch the ground when the pool is full (important for properly positioning support pads). Maybe worth your while to search for some of those discussions...

    You should have him pour a ring of cement where the legs go. All nice and level.

    I'm getting 24 10" holes drilled to 3' then we're putting pave stones over the cement pillars I hope this works. But at least I won't have a 34x18 slab of concrete to worry about when we go to sell the house down the road!

    That is the way to go. Or at least pour a half court basketball size so when you move you throw a hoop in and are good to go.

    Do you mean 3' OR 3". Seems a little crazy if you are going down 3 feet , total over kill and a huge waste of money. The contractor must be high.

    Like 10" sonotubes? I haven't heard of anyone doing this for a pool install even here in the Northeast, where there's a lot of concern about freeze/thaw cycles when you put up a structure (i.e. building).

    Is there a reason you really need that much support in your particular soil?

    Re: The new pool arrives tomorrow

    we used concrete blocks 12 x 12 under each leg sunk in to level with the leveled ground, 3 tarps and a gorilla pad, its been up for 5 years and no problems. We have a 16 round ultra intex.. best investment for an agp. upgrade to a sand filter and swg too...

    Did you really? So they are going to drill down 3" and pour some cement, sweet.

    Re: The new pool arrives tomorrow

    Ok so I got the leveling just about done I was told to use compression sand . We compacted it real tight and i went out and bought 16"x16" pavers and extruded polystyrene 4x8 sheets also the Gorilla pad. My question is do I put down the ground cloth first then the sheets of styrene and then the gorilla pad or gorilla pad first and ground cloth last anyone?

    Thanks

    Re: The new pool arrives tomorrow

    I did the foam insulation with the ground cloth on top. But if I had to do it over again, I would just eliminate the ground cloth since it is disintegrating rapidly.
