Hi all. We had a long cold winter here in New Hampshire.
I left my 1 season old intex up and it held up great.
Unfortunately after being filled for a few says it must have resettled. Its almost 1 and a half inches off on 1 side.
I have 3 kids and their friends in the pool all summer so I'm not taking any chances.

I will be adding pics of my adventure. I also installed a thru wall skimmer last year if I can find the pics I will post a tut on doing that.
I will be back later with pics. Have a great day!

I did a teardown and rebuild of my pump motor last year when the bearings went. I hope I can find those pics. It seems common for the bearings in the intex pump to fail after a year or so of use. They are very cheap and easy to replace over getting a new pump. My pump runs smoother and quieter with new bearings and it took less than 2 hours to do.
It feels good after a long winter to be messing with the pool again.

I am looking forward to the pictures. I would really like to see the pictures of the pump bearing replacement.
