    Pool Just Ordered. Need help in getting started

    The 2 inches should not be a problem as long as the ground is level. Under my pool, I put a layer of foam (foam puzzle mats). Would highly recommend that, so you get a nice soft bottom. If you add that under the pool itself, that will also take some off the 2 inches.

    Is this intex pump overkill for my pool?

    A larger pump is never a bad idea. I have a very small pool 4 x 2 x 1 m. and have also replaced with a larger sandfilter pump. The benefit is huge, because you get a lot higher turnover.

    Just finished Intex Pool with Deck setup.

    Thanks :) Got a few cheap "Handy-men" to come and help with the steel frame, which is just slightly higher than the pool itself (just under 1 cm). The biggest challenge was making the pool frame itself, as it had to go slightly into the pool (hide the org. frame) and also hold the weight of...

    Bad news: Rust. Good news: Time to upgrade.

    Just about to setup a small metal frame pool from Intex and those rust pictures really worry me. Find it amazing it can rust that fast. How is the weather where you live? Could that be the reason? or is it simply just the salt water?

    Will be receiving and setting up my Intex Prism Frame Pool next week. Will be an all-around-year setup. Plan is to build a high-deck around it.

    "Stupid" questions about GFCI protection on Intex system

    Since I am located in Thailand, my biggest worry about my new pool setup is the electrical part. I am pretty sure we do not have GFCI installed anywhere in our house and even if I got a guy to come and "fix" it, I would simply not trust the quality of the work. So I have been thinking about...

    Place pool on blanket of Artificial grass?

    Thanks a lot for your feedback. Looked at your pictures and like the idea about you putting the stone blocks for support under the artificial grass carpet. Think I will do the same. Just need to do some measuring now :-) Got to figure out the distance from pool to supporters
