    intex 16ftx32ftx52in install

    outdoor bbq gazebos

    I purchased a normal gazebo from Walmart for $199 & put my main grill just outside of it. Doesnt protect the grill but gives me a nice big shady area to sit. Have my smoker under it as well

    Landscaping around base of Intex Ultra Frame pools

    I am going to put sand up against the walls of my intex & then do smooth gravel instead of mulch. I am afraid of using any plants in the landscaping. Worried about the roots

    intex 16ftx32ftx52in install

    i did it with a full pool. I wanted to make sure the liner was stretched properly. Completely install the skimmer before making any cuts. Do not cut the white seam that goes around the top.

    NEWB with an AG question...

    are you talking about the 16ftx32ftx52in rectangular? If so I did not feel the 2650 that I had was turning over the water enough. I may have been wrong & over thinking everything, but upgrading to a hayward pump & sand filter just made me feel better. I loved the 2650 on my 16ft round & I have...

    intex 16ftx32ftx52in install

    ask as many questions as you need :) I had actually forgotten about my problems with the skimmer. Yes I kept the hydro tools wide mouth skimmer, but the screws from fastenal did not work. When I was trying to tighten them down to stop leaks they did not hold. I went back to the original screws...

    Pool Newbies with a big leaf problem! And questions...

    the intex sand filter pump (especially the 2650) is strong enough to run a pool vac. Sand filters filter your water better & no more cartridge filters to replace

    intex 16ftx32ftx52in install

    to go from the intex fittings I used a trick i learned on this board.. A 1 1/2 inch conduit box adapter (found in the electrical area of hardware store) will fit inside one of the connectors from the Intex hoses. You then glue 1 1/2 in PVC pipe to this adapter. Go to the post in this link...

    planning the install of 12x24x52 intex pool

    There was a good post on here where someone uploaded a nice picture\layout of the leg placement for the rectangular pool. It showed the exact location for the legs. I will keep looking for it, but according to Intex you are correct with the measurements

    Stupid Mistake

    I agree with linen. the round intex pools can be jacked up just enough to get a block under them.
