    Rope around bottom of Intex AGP

    Two questions. The instructions don't specify so should the legs be inside that rope just like they are inside that band around the middle? Also, what purpose does that bottom rope serve?

    Vacuum for Intex Above Ground Pool

    So going to attempt to do the pantyhose/knee-hi trick today, but I have a stupid question. Will any old pantyhose/knee-hi from the store work, or do i need a particular "type" so it actually catches the finer dirt/sand particles?

    Vacuum for Intex Above Ground Pool

    Yeah, I wonder if for now I'm just better off trying the hacks of knee high/pantyhose over the mesh bag on my existing "vacuum" thing that came with it that attaches to the hose, then maybe trying the hairnet in the skimmer. For the hairnet trick though, where exactly do you put it? My Intex...

    Vacuum for Intex Above Ground Pool

    I was hoping to stay out of the triple digits on a solution here, but still want something that works. I'm right there with you Joe, I'd love to have it do it for me, but I think the price outweighs my level of allowed laziness haha. Never thought of the siphon thing, that sounds like it...

    Vacuum for Intex Above Ground Pool

    I was looking at those, they are nice. I think they're a little too fancy and therefore pricey for me though. Wish I would have thought about this topic a few weeks ago, I just had to replace my pump and bought the same one out of fear that a different one wouldn't hook up just right and i'd...

    Hopefully others can recommend ones they've used. Even if it's just a standalone and not one that hooks up to the filter.

    Vacuum for Intex Above Ground Pool

    Good to keep in mind. Luckily for me I take the ladder out so I think I would avoid that issue.

    Vacuum for Intex Above Ground Pool

    Thanks. maybe i'll give it a try. even if it only works at 50%, maybe that is better than nothing. and that's a good price. I've seen some fancier ones that were WAY more expensive than that.

    Vacuum for Intex Above Ground Pool

    You're right, didn't even notice that. I'm not even in the recommended range. Maybe I need something different?

    What am I doing??

    Sorry. Since she said she was going to Walmart, every Walmart I've ever been to has sold HTH products. They sell two kinds, the orange lid that is stabilized, then the yellow lid which is not. According to their website their non-stabilized stuff is cal-hypo, so wouldn't those be an option...

    Opening Pool & Solar Cover

    I do. I don't take it fully off every day, especially if I'm not using it. Just make sure you're still checking the chemicals every day though. A couple days of being lazy will make that pool water gross.
