    intex 16ftx32ftx52in install

    It is finally official. The new pool shows up next week. Even though we did the leveling for our 16ft round intex by ourselves, I decided to hire someone with a bobcat to do the grading for this one. He will be out on Saturday morning. I cant wait to get the foam board & support blocks down so...

I have heard the pumps are under sized for the actual pools they sell them with, so I am looking to go up & unfortunately can not afford to go out of the Intex pump price range right now. Would the 1500 GPH Intex pump actually...

    Like most others in this section of the forum, I am a new pool owner. Bought a used Intex 16ftx48in ABG metal side w/ SWG. This forum has been a great find. I did not realize I was just starting to get an algae problem until I found this site. I am hoping I have caught it soon enough. Since...
