Spent last week prepping a spot for my first pool. We got an Intex 12x24 on sale over the winter after reading up on them. Hired an excavator to get us down to the solid ground and haul in and compact the choke. Finished up leveling and smoothing out the sand late last night, so no pics of that yet. I'll be putting down half inch rigid foam tonight and then we'll be all set to put up the pool. My TF test kit should be here today. Once we start filling I'll be needing some help with getting and keeping my water at the correct levels. I've read pool school countless times but I'm not the type to read and do, I'm the type that has to try and fail first usually:)

Well, it does look like you are doing everything right so far!
We will be here looking for more pictures, and to answer any questions as they may arise.

Well, it looks like THAT was a success! :)
Have fun in your new pool!
Thank you sir, now I just have to master the water management. So far it has been pretty easy using the test kit and pool school. You guys on the forum here are awesome, I wouldn't have had the confidence to jump in and try it without all the knowledge here.

Very well done. If only they all were constructed so well.
Thanks Casey, I've been following your deck also, I think we share the same attention to detail! I'm going to steal a few of your ideas once my back recovers.

You're more than welcome to do so. I work until my foot hurts so bad n then I'm tapping out. Sometimes I'm not sure if I have more screws in my feet or in the deck. LOL

Awesome, thank you!, do you know if the spacing on the side supports are the same as the 16x32?
That I don’t know for sure but by comparing pics on the web it looks to have 3 more side supports and one more end suppor, and look to be spaced the same, just more supports so you will have to beak out your math skills!. I would think they build them with a template and all supports would have the same spacing for ease of manufacturing, but? Hopefully someone here with more knowledge than I can chime in.
