The pool sides should start to swing out when the pool reaches about 90% of its maximum water capacity.

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.

If the ground is not concrete (i.e., if it is asphalt, lawn, or earth) you must place a piece of pressure-treated wood, size 15” x 15” x 1.2” under each U-shaped support and flush with the ground. Alternatively you may use steel pads or reinforced tiles.

answer 2
you need to put them under the legs, I have this pool and I used treated 1"x8" boards that I cut into 15" pieces and then used 2 next to each other to make a rough 15"x15" footing. It's working out just fine , but I think next year I will go with a large patio block instead. Also know that the filter needs to be on something solid as well

We had one at our last home specifically for our Labs. Built a small wood deck around about 1/3. Modified ladder, chopped off the outside part and attached to deck, screwed down part of a rubber maid step stool ladder down low on the part that goes in the water. Dogs can swim right up to that with stairs under water at right height, and get out. You just have to show them/guide them the 1st several times. Had ours for years, no incidents with nails and the liner, even though one likes to push off the far end before turning around to retrieve. There are also steps that can be purchased and put inside the pool on the liner as a whole unit. Thinking of doing that this year, national places like in the swim sell them.

Yes. You drain the water to below the skimmer level and cover it up. It will be waiting for you in the spring.

We have had for 4 years and never tear down in the winter. We do drain it below the filter holes, and to about 3' depth, then refill in the summer.

You can use salt or chlorine. You'll have to purchase Saltwater Santiizing System if you want to use salt. Or purchase chlorine if you want to use chlorine.

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.

This model doesn't include the Salt Water System. So if you don't buy the Salt Water System, you must add chlorine to the water.
