Question about Intex Frame Set 12 ft x 30 in Pool with Pump

1 Answer

Hi! I just filled a metal frame 12 X 3. It is unlevel by almost 6 inches. Will it collapse or just spill water on the high end? should I just remove some water to make the higher end lower? or do I need to empty and start all over? I had to pay the local fire department to fill, so if I do not need to spend more money on refilling it that would be wonderful..

"should I just remove some water to make the higher end lower" - Does that really make sense to you?

No matter how much water you have in the pool the bulk of it is going to go towards the lower side. It shouldn't collapse. Pools collapse due to winter damage, not to being unlevel, and you cannot leave that pool up over the winter or it will pop.

Water continuously drains and fills, and never gets particularly high

You will need to check you washer drain hose and make sure it is only inserted into your house drain pipe in the wall no deeper than 4-6 inches, alternately your house drain needs to be as high as the top of the washer lid. Be sure to secure your drain line from the washer to one of the water shut off fittings with a zip tie. You are most likely experiencing a siphon action because the washer hose is inserted too deep in the house drain. Pleazer Appliance...

Water comes out of the dey=tergent drawer

Issue, small sock ended up between seal and tub, stopping in front of the hose in front of the soap dispenser. Tools needed, 1/4 inch nutdriver, #20 torx tip and water pump pliers. Remove 3 1/4 in screws from back of top, lift and remove. remove the 2 torx screws, one from top and one from the front in the soap try area. Remove 4 screws screws holding the front frame, pry the entire electronics plastics from the top, one catch on right, one in middle. Remove the last torx from the from of the soap tray, remove the screws to get the metal bracket out of the way. Unclip the 3 hoses and get the soap tray box out of the way. The down hose is where my blockage was, squeeze it at the tub and it will collapse and pull out easy, remove blockage. The hose is not under pressure, just give it a wiggle after putting back in making sure it is round and it will not leak.
And average person with the needed tools should be able to do this.

My wife and i bought a 16 by 48 in. ultra frame intex pool. we had profesionals level the ground, we have a sandy base, and after filling our pool with water and the legs settled, the pool is approx. 2 in....

There won't be any structural problems and you will notice the difference more than anyone else. If you redo the pool next year it will help to set each leg on a patio brick so it won't settle.

The metal poles seem to be tilting in twords the top it looks like its going to collapse. The pool is not to full...It is also not on a hill.

If your soil is sandy or loose the pole bases may be sinking and spreading outward. I have seen people use landscaping blocks or bricks underneath the bases to solve this.
And remember, even a couple inches of elevation change can unbalance one of these pools...not obvious to the eye over an 18 foot area, but obvious once you fill it.

Metal in the water ... let the CH go to 1 or less PPM and treat with 'metal out' or similar from your professional pool supply place. Following container instructions, slowly add CL to 2 to 4 ppm.

Are there instructions for the Norpro ravioli attachment? I have a Norpro two piece set attachment for my Norpro pasta maker. It came with no instructions whatsoever. Are there any printed instructions...

Just bought one,so you're in luck lol.
Roll pasta dough until thin and translucent.
Dust lightly with flour.
Cut dough into four rectangular strips,each about 12 inches by 4 inches.
Place on strip of dough over the frame.(the metal part)
Press dough into frame with the indented tray.(plastic piece)
Remove the indented tray.
Fill pouches as desired.
Place a second strip of dough over the strip with the filling in it and press strips together with your fingers.
With a rolling pin,roll across the dough covered frame,gently at first and then increase pressure until the zig zag edges of the frame are visible through the pasta. The ravioli is now sealed. Remove excess dough and re-roll.
Remove ravioli from frame by by tapping it on counter.

I find that these instructions aren't the best. They should tell you to lightly flour the frame before using or else it's hard to remove the ravioli. I also find that tapping it makes no difference...I always have to push them out through the bottom.
Good luck and enjoy!

How do I replace the water intake valve on my whirlpool top loader.

Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid, Kenmore, Roper, Estate, after 1985
• The valve will be mounted to the back of the washer with two screws. However, you must remove the valve from inside the washing machine, and this requires you remove the entire washer cabinet, which consists of the top, front and sides.
• Remove the two screws in the lower corners of the control panel.
• Lift the control panel up high enough so it stays up and back.
• Disconnect the wire harness connector.
• Using a flathead screwdriver, snap out the two gold-colored spring clips at the top of the cabinet on the left and right sides.
• The cabinet will now lift up at the back. Pull the cabinet up 10-12 inches and then slide it forward 2 inches.
• Remove the cabinet completely and set it aside.
• The valve will be on the right side of the washer at the back. It’s the device to which the water fill hoses are attached.
• Label the wires from the valve and remove them.
• Remove the water feed tube(s) from the valve.
• Remove the screws holding the valve to the back panel.
• Install the new valve in the reverse order.
• Reinstall the cabinet. (Note: As you follow this procedure, do not force the cabinet in any way. When done properly, the cabinet will go back together very smoothly.) First, tilt the cabinet toward you 10-12 inches while you “walk” the cabinet back onto the lower frame of the washer. (This will be easier if you have the washer lid open so you can see inside the cabinet at the same time.) The front edge of the cabinet slides underneath the base frame, and the sides of the cabinet rest on top of the base frame.
• When the cabinet is resting on the frame squarely, check to be sure the back of the washer is aligned with the cabinet. There are two plastic strips attached to the back of the washer that must line up with the sides of the cabinet as you set the cabinet down.
• Reinstall the two spring clips at the top.
• Reattach the wire harness connector.
• Rotate the control panel back down and reinstall the two screws.
• Flush out the water fill hoses.
• Reattach the water lines.
• Turn on the water.
• Check for and correct any leaks.
• Restore power and test.
Hope this helped you and best wishes.
