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.

Question

How deep is the water when filled to the fill line?

How deep is the water when filled to the fill line?
One question asked was does it require a fence? Answer was NO because it is very shallow only about 24" deep. Surely this is a mistake. Why buy a 52" pool if it can only hold 24" of water.

The pump that comes with the pool is rated at 110-120 volts. Currently the only filter pumps that have 220v are sold overseas.

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

you can upgrade your pump and sandfilter to any size you want, I am finding this one to be more than adequate, run aprox 4-6 hours daily. Have had inground pools and above ground pools all my life and I am very satisfied with this product.

answer 1
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.
answered 1 year, 10 months ago
By
Intex Consumer Support
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.

I believe it is coated galvanized piping. I have a basketball goal made of this pipeing. It is 26 years old. Looks great still to this day.

NO. It's not the worst ladder, but it's definitely the worst feature of the pool. It's also very NARROW. Great for little kids. Not so great for mama.

This pool comes with the sand filter(which is the pump). Yes, you can use a saltwater system with the sand filter. If you want to use saltwater system, you have to purchase it separately.

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.

No it can not be buried.Takes about 2 weeks from order to delivery,at least in FL.

answer 2
You can only bury this one partially is you leave enough room for the side supports. I wouldnt recomend this though because the instructions say to give at least five ft. of work space on all four sides of the pool and we found this to be very true. O and we received the pool in about two and a half weeks after we purchased it. By the way, great delivery service.
