    That is so cool! I keep wishing I had a clock that would be easy to see from the pool. Nancy 🌺

    Intex Deluxe Pool Skimmer not working......

    Ours wouldn't suck right, so we closed off the other return, now it works. I can see it swirling the water there more. But you say you have better suction, so I don't know, unless maybe it has something to do with your fountain.

    Intex ultra leg falling

    We ended up digging a space and putting another paver in front of the one that it was close to coming off. Nancy 🌺

    Does this bowing worry you?

    @jcrew6311 Okay, I always read that these u shaped legs needed to be supported with something. I've seen pictures on here where several were bent because they lacked support, but maybe your ground is hard enough to support it. Nancy 🌺

    Put the pool up...and it's not level by 3 inches

    We just put up an oval pool and used the 8x16x4 pavers on ours. I've heard some people like the wood also. Nancy 🌺

    Intex ultra xtr 18x9x52 rectangular pool setup

    We have an oval pool. Which is similar with the u shaped legs. While we don't live in Florida, we do live in the sandhills. We have sandy soil and we dug down to get to the lowest point, ending up being over a foot for us in certain places. We put down the concrete blocks like the above post...

    Just started with an Intex Oval pool - never had a pool.

    @Wobblerlorri I was looking at the vac you posted and it says for leaves. Does it also pick up the finer things like bugs and such? I like that you don't have to rely on water pressure, since ours is very low. Thanks! Nancy 🌺

    Finally put up our Coleman 26'x12'x52" Pool!

    First, I'd like to thank y'all for all the knowledge I've gained from reading these forums! We never would've been able to get it up without it. These pools should really come with a warning label that says you'll have to spend hundreds more to get it going, lol! So this is the installation...

    I had high hopes for you getting it, after you got the shipping alerts, guess it was just too good to be true. At least Paypal is really good about helping. It's terrible they get away with doing that to people! Nancy 🌺

    2 pavers broke after pool is full

    I was told if I was going to use pavers that they have to be 4 inches thick to withstand the weight of the pool.

    1st Test from tap water

    Thanks everyone for helping out, I really appreciate the advice! @splashpad I left the water out for about 5 more hours and checked the ph again and now it's 7.8. So it did come down a little. Nancy

    1st Test from tap water

    Hey y'all! Thanks for everything everyone's posted to help out us new owners! I hope I'm only about a week away from putting up our pool. Anyway, I got my TF-100 test kit and did a test on my tap water, it's county water. I'm posting my results in case anyone can give me an idea of what...

    New Pool Install

    I hadn't been on your post in awhile, so I didn't know about your home. I am so sorry that happened! And I can't even believe your neighbor acting that way!

    Need help

    I think the problem is your pavers don't look as wide as the legs. I've read on here that causes the legs to bend like that. Nancy :flower:

    So Close...until I noticed that the floating joint had popped. Now draining.

    @Lah5 Were you able to get your joint back in and your pool filled? Nancy :flower:

    Took down to level again still about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 off level

    @JimR1998 You're very right about the price. We live in the middle of nowhere, lol. Thanks for the link you posted! I think we'll probably use the water level method. Not looking forward to the leveling at all. It'll probably be a few weeks before we get to level it. We still have some parts...

    Could someone post pics of the wood used in place of pavers for the Intex (or similar) oval pool set up?

    Wow, That's scary, I hope you don't have to let out too much water and that it goes back in for you! Nancy :flower:
