    Through Wall Skimmer for Intex Ultra Frame

    I have a combination of one of the bottom drains converted to a return along with the skimmer and pump discharge routed to two of the factory holes in the sidewall. Cutting them out and converting the fittings can be found here: Useful Links for Fellow Intex Pool Owners ,hope this helps.

    Through Wall Skimmer for Intex Ultra Frame

    Yesterday I installed a Wide Mouth skimmer on my new Intex 16 X 32 Ultra Frame and made the mistake of centering the skimmer over a vertical seam. Realized what I had done as I was cutting out the skimmer opening. I brought the pool water level up and sure enough the skimmer is leaking. Now...

    Foam Bottom questions

    Used the 3/4" extruded foam sheets from Lowes around $15/sheet. For 16'x32' pool I needed 16 sheets. Worth the price!

    Time for a through-the-wall skimmer

    I second what POPPA S said in that you won't regret installing the skimmer. I have had several AG pools and this is my first with the skimmer installed which does a great job at clearing debris. I also use a solar cover frequently and the skimming is reduced but once the cover is rolled up the...

    New Install - Intex Ultra Frame 32' x 16' x 52" AG Pool

    Correct, using a 32' x 16' layout. Just keep in mind that the braces are 20" wide and you will need to determine where the center of your pad will be. If you are using a 16" pad as I did you would need to start the edge of the first board on the long side at 29" and the short side at 25".

    Foam vs sand?

    I used the 3/4" blue extruded polystyrene as did many others on TFP. The expanded type would likely be too soft.

    New Install - Intex Ultra Frame 32' x 16' x 52" AG Pool

    Thanks for the comments CeeElGee and laceygirl. Over the past 10 years we started with the Intex blow up ring pool which lasted a season as the kiddos were young. Upgraded to a Intex 15 ft round pool which lasted about 3 yrs and would have made it longer but it was setup with only the supplied...

    Treated 2" x 16" x 16" (2x8s connected with clips) boards over the concrete pads. I had to dig out to move the blocks against the insulation. Initially I used the Intex dimensions but the legs were only a couple of inches on the blocks. During this dig I recalled reading on this site about...
