    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I highly recommend putting water in it

    Do you have a specific question?

    You should invest in one of the recommended test kits now and make sure you level the ground within 1" before install.

    Welcome, Manny!

    I'll echo that: First, order a proper test kit right now. It'll pay for itself with one trip not taken to the pool store. I use this one.
    Second: stock up on Motrin and beer. You'll need it for site levelling.
    Third: check ouit this video: UnkyJoe's Pool
    Fourth: Check this thread for more ideas: I need advice on leveling my ground.
    Fifth: glimpse at the thread titles in Useful links for fellow Intex Pool Owners just so you know the info is there

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
