    Intex 24x12x52 Setup Questions

    Hi All, I’ve read through a bunch of other threads, but just want to make sure we are doing this right. We have the Intex ultra xtr 24x12x52 with sand system arriving this week. We live just outside of Boston, so this will be strictly seasonal. We normally belong to a pool in the summer, but I’m...
