    Rusted Intex Frame

    crek31 I think you cannot put up and take down every year because the standard overlap pool liner really stretches so much that it cannot resume is original form and wouldn't hold up if what I've read in the forums is true. but I was so fed up with intex that I was about to purchase a AGP until...

    Rusted Intex Frame

    crek31 I taped up the tears in the original intex liner and put the new liner in the shell of the intex pool smoothed it out as good as I could which turns out really nice. bought some tarp grabbers from amazon to hold the liner in place. then when the pool water was approaching the return...

    Rusted Intex Frame

    basically yes. I bought another 18x52 ultra frame after the other pool had a tear on the bottom floor about 1ft-18in at the seam. then after the new pool was almost filled up I came outside and saw another tear in almost the same area but closer to the wall. could not use it so I decided to try...

    Rusted Intex Frame

    here is another thing that I've discovered. now it could be to early to reach this conclusion but i'm starting on my 4th year with the 18x52 ultra frame and using the SWG and since I installed the new overlap liner I haven't seen one sign of rust on any of the frame poles whatsoever. I believe...

    Intex 633t cartridge pump connected to sand filter

    my intex sand filter that came with my 18X52 pool went bad and i had purchased the 633T for half of what the intex sand filter would have cost and am very pleased with its performance. i read alot of reviews on amazon and decided to give it a shot. glad i did although i miss the sand filter when...

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    i did the same thing as far as the liner. traced out the original hole on the return and the skimmer. let the water get up about 3-4'' below the openings. no adhesive at all. everything snugged up nicely!

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    i have to say that after i saw your pics of your pool i made a decision to try it since my pool was shot anyway and i'm glad i did. i had seen this thread some time ago and remembered reading it but your pics sealed it for me. thanks for your pics and to everyone who contributed to this topic!:D...

    Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' metal frame

    my 18X52'' intex suddenly developed a tear in the liner about 12-15'' in length about 4-5'' below the seam on the pool floor so i have installed a 18X52'' 20G overlap liner from in the swim for $99 bucks using the tarp grabbers from amazon. it has worked great! it has saved my pool and the...

    intex pool liner conversion kit!

    i have found this on pooldeals.com this would be a great replacement option for anyone who has the blue intex pool with the white round frame who has a torn liner, however it does not work with the ultra frame pools. boy if someone could figure out something that would go over the ultra frame...

    thanks for the replies. i will try the bucket test and see what kind of results i get. down here you can easily break a sweat just standing outside!

    humidity and evaporation

    there is a area near the ladder off the deck that has a little bit of water standing but this area of the pool stays in the shade near the trees and the sun never hits it so i'm thinking its from splashout and not a leak and water lingers longer.

    humidity and evaporation

    no. i've never used a cover except in the off season. might need to look into that for sure! but i havent had to keep putting in this much water. it rains almost everyday in the evenings and has been alot more cloudy this year than last.

    humidity and evaporation

    we are having some very high humidity and temps this year and it seems like i'm seeing a greater water loss this year than last year. dont have a leak that i can find yet i'm losing about 1/4 to 1/2'' a day. temps are running in the 90's and humidities are 70-90 % each day. i live in south...

    Rust starting on intex ultra

    precisely why i'm not using the SWG any longer. rust completely destroyed my intex ultra frame inside of 3 years and i'm convinced the salt did it. i'm now using the BBB method to care for my new 18x52 ultra frame and it is working great! no more salt for me! :party:

    making the move away from intex

    i'm probably leaning towards the sharkline heritage and the esprit over the other 2 right now. i would like to have the matrix but my budget doesnt allow that right now. the rusting out of my intex has really made up my mind for me to pursue the steel/resin combination. i can go with the 21ft...

    making the move away from intex

    i've decided to switch from a intex pool to a steel wall pool. i've thought and thought about it and i think its time to make the move. while intex was a great learning experience i'm ready for something that last quite a bit longer than the intex that rusted out in 3 years. now i'm looking for...

    Rusted Intex Frame

    i just posted a thread about my rust problem. some of the vertical and horizontal pieces have rusted thru completely. this after only 3 years of use. i bought the pool complete with SWG in 2010. i'm upgrading to the 18x52'' but i will not use the SWG!

    new 18x52'' pool...........will not be using SWG!

    whatever caused it i will not take the chance. i've read enough pool school to take another route. after watching the youtube video from aboveground pros concerning the question of using salt vs chlorine to sanitize your pool it looks like my pool fell right into this same catergory of after 3-4...
