We found Pool Salt at our local home improvement store since our local Wal-Mart was sold out. They now have it again, but try your local Wal-Mart and if no luck, then the local home improvement store.

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!!

It has a very small platform that I always step around. It's a little wobbly. It's not great but it does the job (for now).

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.

Question

What are the dimensions of the pool once set up?

I know it is a 16 foot circle, but does that include the frame? Once the pool is set up, does the frame extend past the 16 feet by a few inches on each side?

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.

lots of slack in white band after filling?

I made the same mistake at first until I watched the video. The legs can be plumb side to side, but the bottoms are to be pulled away from the pool, kinda slanted against pool. This pool is designed this way to give the pool stability when people are in it slashing around making the pool shake back and forth. if you do this the belt will be tight. The main thing is that the rope is tight!!!

Question

I see that this pool is 48" deep. The true water depth is important to me. Does 48" mean that you get 48" of water or is the fill line below 48"?

Your water level is about 4 inches from the top of the frame, but still feels and swims like a 48" pool.

answer 2
The fill line is below 48". I have a 48" pool, and the 48" is talking about the height of the pool as set up, not the water height inside. After you fill it to 90% capacity (recommended height) you will probably get about waist-to chest-high water (if you're 5' or above tall). If you want a deeper pool, then get one that has a 52" depth.

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.

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.
