First-time poster and total newbie, here. Lots of reading to do, but I'd like to go ahead and get a concrete pad poured.
First, does anybody know what the exact dimensions of the Intex 16-foot Ultra Frame? I'm a little tight on space, so the smaller the better. Would 16'6" do it? I was hoping the 16-foot dimension was marketing speak and included even the plastic feet for the legs. A 14-footer would fit much better with plenty of space around, but the I like the look of the Ultra Frame much better.
Next, what's the minimum spec for the slab? I think I saw a reference to six inches with rebar, which sounds like massive overkill. I realize the pool will be north of 40,000 pounds, but on the other hand, it's perfectly distributed over the slab at around 250 pounds per square foot. Seems like much, much less stress on the concrete compared to a car on a driveway, which is often more like 1000 pounds per square foot, and not evenly distributed.
Thanks in advance for the help!!!
