    Most Bang for your $

    Ok we are getting closer in setting up our 20 x 52 Intex. Concrete pad is being poured next week then we should be good to go. The intex pool we have is the Metal frame 10x20 not the ultra and I have a question regrading the feet. How far do the feet stick out from the the 10x20 dimensions? Am I safe to assume about a foot?

    As far as most bang or your buck ideas. The pool comes with a sand filter already.

    Thanks

    I don't know the answer, but maybe the pool install/owners manual is available on the Intex website and will have the details. If you already have the pool then it might be worth your time to unpack the upper rail parts and put it together to double check measurements. It is pretty easy to do on an Intex pool. Congrats on the new pool!

    Here is an Intex useful link thread somebody started a while back.

    I don't see that size pool listed on the intex site. Please clarify. Is it 20' round x 52" deep, or is it 10' by 20' rectangular 52" deep? I find a 9' by 18' pool. If that's the one you have, this thread has your answer.

    This Intex was sold by Costco so it will be an unusual size as most items sold by Costco will be just a little different. Our pool is 10x20 Rectangular in size. Information says 6 feet of extra room on all side but I know it doesn't take that much room thats just a standard.... We are trying to squeeze into a tight place but pretty sure it will work.

    Thanks

    Thanks

    Well, when it is set up and full, break out a tape measure and doublecheck things and post the info. That way you will add to the store of knowledge here.
