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
Thanks so much for sharing your progress - we have our 12x24 ready to go pending some leveling. @Casey - pls can you share your deck photos? That is something we are looking at also - some construction photos would be hugely appreciative also!

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.
GREAT JOB! Now... do yourself a huge favor and switch to SWG and sand filter ASAP! Easy breezy and almost no maintenance!

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:)
what is the white PVC for?

Oh i see, thanks. Sorry for the dupe reply!
Most would pull the pvc out and fill with sand after they are done leveling. Since I used foam on top I just let them under there. Seems to be fine so far, I feel for them with my feet in the pool and can't find them still.

Oh wow! I’m trying to figure out how to get one 4 inch thick paver into the ground without breaking a back. And that’s only one per leg. 18 legs. 🤦🏼‍♀️
I used a matick, getting the pavers level was a chore. A water level was invaluable. Once the geound prep and pavers are done it is pretty smooth sailing.

Looks beautiful! How is the pump and filter doing? I see you’re using the one that came with the pool. I upgraded to the Krystal Clear 16” sand filter 3000 GPH pump and it was well worth the upgrade! Mine came with the same pump/filter as yours and I’m just keeping it for backup. If yours is working for you though, by all means keep it up! Ground work and pool look amazing! Happy Swimming!! 😎
