Okay, NOOB here. lol. The past three years we have had a Summer Escape pool from walmart. We never set them up right and just take them down at the end of the year. This year I'm going to drop some change on a 22ft Intex. We want to do it RIGHT this time and leave it up with a deck and all. I've been reading on here in terms of setup, and have found all kinds of info, but I'm OVERWHELMED. I've seen leveling, and pads put down, I"ve seen decks being built. I've seen that you have to put bricks or pavers under each leg and I've seen where others don't do that. I've seen where people build pvc fountains, is that looks or a certain reason? I don't know what to do! Last year we also bought the Krystal clear salt water and sand filter system, so we'll be using that again this year. But I desperately need help.
Tell me your setup from beginning and pics. Step by step. What to do what not to do, what works what doesn't, need padding under it or not? HELP PLEASE!! We want to get it right!
