    Pool in Box and researching best ground prep for Intex ultra frame 18 X 48

    After several years of debating about an above ground and reading online, I've bought the Intex 18 X48 ultra frame. Clearing the sod presently, have painted a circle on our grass and working slowly to get the grass up. Have read we could add a little sand to the dirt
    when smoothing just under the pool area, and then pavers under the legs...See some
    have used more than the tarp provided. Looking for best results while keeping cost down. Would like to hear what others did. Do not want to have to redo this. Also is it necessary to treat for weeds after clearing the grass? If ground is wet from rain is it ok to place tarp and pool out or does it need to dry?
    And what types of cords are folks using if the pump is more than 25 ft. from the
    GFCI outlet? And what methods are folks using to warm the pool up?

    Welcome to the forum Smit!

    You will find a lot of reading about all these things in the above Ground pool section, and I'm sure many of those owners will weigh in here too. Enjoy your time on TFP.
