People, keep in mind one of the reasons these pools can be offered so inexpensively, is because the filters are not very sophisticated . Do yourself a favor and buy the salination pump offered by Walmart/Intek and replace the one that came with your pool. They are great and will filter the water in these sizes of pools wonderfully. Best of all no chemicals!!

The B filter is to small in my opinion. We live in a rural area and are cleaning our filter twice a week. In fact, I came on here looking for an answer about the addition of a sand filter, to help with problems.

NOTE, I emailed the Intex office three days ago about using it with this filter, pump system and still no reply from them.

NO!!!! And mine broke as soon as I tried to put it together!! But you can order a platform from the Intex store on line. I ordered one, haven't got it yet. I'll let you know how sturdy it is afterwards, as for now you gotta try not to shake to much when your climbing it!!

Question

Do you have to add the salt right away?

I have a very impatient 5-year-old who wants to swim in it right away. Since you can't run the pump when in use and it has to run 24 hours before even turning on the saltwater pump, is it okay to delay adding the salt by a day. It is Saturday night and we're still filling it with water, but I had told her we would swim tomorrow not realizing exactly how it all worked. Thanks for any advice.

You can if you want...but be prepared for VERY COLD water unless you heated it first. My advice is to set it up before anyone gets in it. This will ensure that the pump is working properly and that the salt is dissolved thouroughly so that the chlorinator will do its job at start up. This process will take at least 24 hours...and plan on 48 hours if you have not added the correct amount of salt. Also, last note. if you can buy NON-pelletized salt the process of disolving the the salt will be much faster and easier on you.

Good luck!

My girls swam while the pool was filling! We finished filling it this morning, I added salt, and they are in it again. I figure the pump will run most of the time, but when I get ready to turn on the saltwater system after 24 hours, then they will have to get out for those five hours. If I set it to begin around 10:00 at night, then it should run about that same time every night. Good Luck!

Can you use sand to level the ground before placing the pool? It specically states on the box, not to use sand! Why? Why not?

They require that you not use sand because the poles will sink in sand. You could possibly use patio blocks to put the poles on, but I haven't seen anywhere that anyone has done this. If I buy it, I will probably use the blocks.

The pool comes with a liner (looks like a tarp) to place on the ground. I would assume that sand is soft and could cause some shifting of the support legs. We put the support legs up on patio pavers and used a small amount of sand, just enough to cover the ground area to help cushion any roots or pebbles we may have missed while preparing the area. We then laid the liner over the sand.

There is a little mesh bag you put on one end and the garden hose on the other and it works somewhat, but i plan on getting a longer hose to run of the filter to use.

I beleive the vacuum connects to a garden hose only. At a former house we had an inground pool and we needed to hook the vacuum into the skimmer but the directions don't state that for this pool.

No, none of the Intex pools are as easy as they state on the box. The reason is because you need to have PERFECTLY level ground to put the pool on. But after you have perfectly level ground, the setup of the pools is pretty close to what they claim on the box, as long as you are fairly experienced in putting things together.

we have also used the bulk salt- just added to pool during the heat of the day so that it would dissolve quicker. I was able to find table salt in 25 lb bags at our local grocery store.

You can use the water softener pellets that come in the yellow sack. Salt pellets need to be 98% pure, which softener pellets are.

how do you drain this pool?

I am a first time buyer and would like to know how you drain the pool? Does the pump have a reverse on it to drain or?

No reverse on this pump. You have to go into the pool and on the bottom of the side wall nearest the pump, there is a plug. You have to un-plug the drain hole. Don't wait till it is getting pretty cold! You won't want to go into the very cold water like my hubby had to. The best thing is to leave it up all year and winterize the pool. You can call the Intex company the number is all over the paper work that comes with the pool and it is also printed on the sidewall of the outside of the pool.
