Other than leveling the ground, does anything else have to be done under the pool for the set up? Do we need to put sand down?
If sand is recommended, how much have you used. It seems like we would need a truck full not bags.
Also from the look in the pictures, are there vinyl straps around the base of the metal side supports or is it a different material?

Intex does not recommend using sand during the construction of our pool. We would recommend using compacted dirt, or any other material that won't move around when the weight of the water is on top of it. The strap around the center of the pool is made out of vinyl.

We didnt use sand but we did get a truck load of clean dirt, then we purchansed a thin layer of insulation foam to cover the bottom of the pool so there would be some cushion and protection from the ground and the pool. i would recommend buying pavers to go under the legs because once you add the water the weight will add pressure and youll need the pavers so the legs wont sink. Our ground is not perfectly leveled but we have had ours up for 2 years without taking it down and we/my kids love it. I do recommend buying the saltwater system love love love it.
