    Hello everyone, we are Robert and Sarah!!!

    My wife and I are new to the pool world. We have no idea what we are doing. LOL! We are learning, which is awesome. We still have a long way to go. We have a Intex pool 9x18x52 with a sand filter and saltwater pump. I hope we are doing everything correct. Thanks for having us.

    Pool on existing concrete patio

    I’m looking to place a 10’ intext metal frame/poly on an existing concrete patio. The patio has a slight grade to direct rain away from the house. Suggestions on a way to make a non permanent level surface to place the pool on top of?
