We have an Intex 16x32 UltraFrame and are going on our third season with it. I put 2x12 pieces under the metal supports and they have held up nicely. I have heard horror stories about using pavers under the supports so we opted for wood and have had no issues. I also put 4x8 foam sheets under mine and that feels great to wlka on. in the pool. I also used the tarp that came with it but added another heavier one just to be safe. The SWG system is great. We replaced the pump this year with a Hayward pump which made a huge difference. We also added a Hayward side wall skimmer that does a much better job keeping the pool clean. Hope all this info helps! You're definitely in the right place to learn!
