So much have been said here, but nowhere can I find the important info that been asked for. So is there anybody that can post the distance between the legs on a Intex 12x24x52? Please. And distance from corners too.

It's on page 1. There's a picture with the dimensions.

According to this diagram a pool has an interior (sand /foam) of the pools stated width and length and and an exterior foot print of 1'10" wider and longer except the largest which is 2'larger in exterior Length and 1'10" in width larger at footings well that simplifies things for those who are poor at math also use at least 2" depth for footings to avoid cracking pavers or wood use ground contact lumber so it won't snap/rot and collapse your pool.

Thanks everyone for the posting on the layout of the braces. Agreed that they shouldn't be so hard to find. But regarding paver blocks vs PT.....I'm in Maine and my concern was individual blocks raising and settling at different heights due to frost heave. My thought was that if an entire side was supported by a single 2x12 PT, then at least that side would move as a unit. Anybody have experience using one vs the other in a cold climate?

I am not worried about the frost heaves here in Utah.... But I cant find 4" thick blocks anywhere So i was thinking of getting 4x6 PT landscape timbers and cut them down
