    What's your current pool temp?

    80 today, warmest I seem to be able to get it with the solar cover. Anyone else up north get theirs warmer without a heater? If so how??

    Will This Tubing Work?

    Thanks for the help, bought all my supplies and decided to hook up my solar heater right to the pump before I did all the work. Glad I did as it had a pretty large leak from storage over the winter, guess Im taking it all back till I decide on another solar heater

    Will This Tubing Work?

    Ill have to look tonight. I found an adapter at Lowes that threads onto what I have. Only problem I see is Intex uses a rubber seal, if I use this adapter theres no flat sealing surface for a seal only threads. Would thread tape work in this case?

    Will This Tubing Work?

    Im trying to hook up a solar heater to my intex pool. I found adapters to go from the threaded to either 1-1/4 or 1-1/2 tubing. I found clear PVC Vinyl tubing at Lowes I can buy per foot, would this work? Idk what psi Id be running but says good to 25 psi. If this wont work anywhere else I can...

    How to find a bottom leak?

    It is not, as the pool is filling it seems to be leaking a little faster. It is pooling in one section by one of the legs

    How to find a bottom leak?

    Been filling the pool since last night, checked this morning and there is a small puddle of water by one of the legs on the tarp. I dried it off and checked back a couple hours later and theres another small puddle. Its coming from between the liner and the tarp, it isn't much maybe 1/2 a cup...

    Continue On or Start Over

    Guess Ill try draining the pool tonight. I dont know how much I can dig out as Ill have to do it all manually as theres no room to get equipment in my fence. Also the ground is very rocky and filled with roots. Obviously perfectly level is best but is there an acceptable tolerance such as 1"?

    Sorry for another question but since all the legs are sitting on the foam if I added a paver under some of the low legs to raise it would that work or put too much stress on the liner?

    I did gorilla tape all the seems. And the legs are on top of the foam so they also can not sink in. I dont know how much Ill be able to dig out its between two trees and there are a lot of roots

    Continue On or Start Over

    So this is my second year with our 18x52 intex. The fenced area where we put it barely fit the pool last year and was a little unlevel. This year I extended the fence out another 25' and moved the pool over to where it seemed more level. I used a couple bags of sand to fill obvious low spots...

    Question About Foam and AGP

    Thanks, think putting a thin piece of like 1/4 plywood or a thin paver under each leg to spread it out would help?

    Question About Foam and AGP

    Hello all, this is our second year for our 18x52 Intex pool. Learned last year that first we have about a 2" drop from one end to the other and also that since its set up between two very large trees you can feel some of the roots under the liner. Plus I hate the hard ground feeling so I was...
