    Backfill for Intex Ultra Frame 9'x18'

    I've seen the retaining walls people have built for the Intex rectangular pools but I was wondering if anyone just backfilled with dirt after the pool was filled. Our pool would be buried about 18 inches on one long side, 10 inches on the other long side and about 24 inches on one short side.

    We buried a 15ft round Vogue above ground pool that lasted for 15 years in this spot but were hoping to use a rectangular pool this time around. I realize the metal sides would deteriorate over time but we really only need it to last for 2-3 seasons.

    Thanks for the input -

    I'm sure you could do this but it's not recommended and I doubt that you will find someone here that would recommend you backfill with dirt with an Intex pool.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
