Your pool can be easily emptied and stored in a safe place during the winter. However, many people choose to leave their pool up year round. In areas where freezing temperatures occur, there is risk of ice damage. It is recommended that you drain, disassemble and store the pool in a safe place when temperatures drop below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. See the "How To Drain Your Pool" section in your manual. STORING POOL FOR WINTER: After draining the pool, dry the pool liner completely (100%). Next sprinkle talcum powder on the liner to prevent vinyl from sticking together and to absorb any moisture you may have missed. Roll the pool liner to avoid creases and relocate it to the storage area you've chosen. Place it in the original carton, if you saved it. Keep all of the parts together including the filter pump, manual, and pool, and then place in an area that will remain at room temperature throughout the storage season. WINTERIZING YOUR POOL: Clean the pool water thoroughly (In the case of the Easy Set Pool, make sure the top ring is properly deflated). Remove the skimmer (if applicable) or any accessories attached to the threaded strainer connector. Replace the strainer grid if necessary. Be sure all accessories and parts are clean and completely dry before storaging. Plug the Inlet and Outlet fittings from the inside of the pool with the plug provided (sizes 10' and 12'). Close the Inlet and Outlet Plunger Valve (15', 18', and 24'). Remove the ladder (if applicable) and store it in a safe place. Be sure the ladder is completely dry before storaging. Remove the hoses that connect the pump and filter to the pool. Add appropriate winter chemicals. Consult your local pool dealer as different regions vary greatly. Cover pool with your Intex Pool Cover. IMPORTANT: INTEX POOL COVER IS NOT A SAFETY COVER. Clean and drain the pump, filter housing and hoses. Remove and discard old filter cartridges (keep a spare cartridge available for the next season). Bring the pump and filter parts indoors and store them in a safe and dry area, preferably heated.

The recommended water depth for that size pool is 45 inches.

Yes, depending on how much water you put in the pool you should get about 50". The more water you put in the more you splash out when you are swimming and playing.

pump voltage is 110 but at 1/2 horsepower and the lenght of time you are running it will be minimal.

The framing is made out of galvanized steel, coated with a rust resistant paint. The framing is rust resistant, not rust proof, so there is a chance that it could still rust due to the saltwater.

answer 2
no the pool in not aluminum and the salt if done correctly not adding waaay to much salt will not affect the support braces.

Question

The size of package of this pool?

Hi! I have a friend who loves this pool but she lives in China. She asked me to buy this for her and send it over to China. But she wants to know the size of the package so she could estimate the money to pay for it. It seems pretty big and costs lots of money. Thanks. Please reply me soon cause she won't be at home for the next two weeks.

Are you required to have a fence with this like in-ground pools?

I'm looking for an above-ground pool to put in the back of a mobile home located inside a mobile home park. They don't allow fences to be put up. I've noticed some above ground pools don't have fences around them for safety but have heard some bigger ones need to. Would this one need a fence or can I have without one.?

No, this pool is not a salt water pool. In order to convert your pool over to saltwater, you would need to purchase the CS8110 saltwater system. This saltwater system will hook up to the sand filter that came with your pool. To finish the conversion process, you would just need to add salt into the pool and turn the saltwater system on.

The filter that it comes with is a chlorine filter and it is not very good. We purchased a saltwater filter the second year of use and it was the best decision we ever made. We have had for 4 years now.
