I assume you're putting up an above ground pool. I use 4" thick x 8 x16" patio blocks under each column. I level each block by starting at the lowest area, and place first block. I then dig out enough dirt to level the next block to the first, and so one. Once you're done, all the uprights will be level. Then, once the metal is all on, I level the inside with sand, tapering it slightly to the center, so the dirt flows to the middle when it settles. There is no problem with sand under the liner, but not under the uprights, as it cold washout.

What setting do I putmy pump on to vacuum sand out of my pool. I have the sandman 22"?


I'm not familiar with that particular brand, but if you want to get sand out of your pool you should first make sure you're ready to vacuum (with the plate firmly in the skimmer box and connected to your hose and then to your pole with the vacuum head), then turn the multi-port valve (MPV) to 'waste'. If your equipment is below the water line then water may start to come out your waste line - not a drama. Next, just turn the pump on and you will be vacuuming sand straight through the pump and out to wherever your waste line goes.

Be careful to ensure that you don't let the waterline in the pool get below the level of the skimmer box, because if you start to suck air you increase the likelihood of damaging your pump. A good idea is to top up the pool as much as you can with a hose before you start vacuuming, and then top it up again as necessary as your going along.

If you do need to top up the pool, be sure to get your water tested as soon as you can afterward, then top it up with whatever chemicals you may need.

First thing to do about chemicals for above ground sand filters


the values I set for my customers pools is as follows:

chlorine 1.0 - 3.0 ideal
ph 7.4
alkalinity 100 ppm
calcium 200 ppm
stabilizer 50 ppm (saltwater pool 25 ppm)

These values will provide balanced swimming pool water

When you set up a metal frame intex pool is it best to set it on sand or is there another way to set it up


Sand is always the best way to go. This way if the pool frame, liner, or even the ground shift a little it has no ill effects. The sand just conforms to whatever is on top of it and to a degree, whatever is below it as well. Soft soil works okay, but it depends on the part of the country you are in. Definitely not good to try on hard ground or anywhere there are rocks and debris.

HAYWARD SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES: sand is getting into the pool whan the filter is r...


Have you tried backwashing recently? If so, I would first check to make sure that your pool filter is on the "filter" setting and has not been changed. Next, i would evaluate your filter pressure to make sure that it is at an acceptable level. Finally, check your sand. If it is extremely dirty or has not been replaces in a long time, it might be time for fresh, more effective sand.

Sand in backwash


You need to replace the seal in the head unit of the filter.. The sand should be replaced every three years or buy a cleaning solution.

Lopsided 18x4 intex round easy set pool


I started out with easy set pools a few years ago and finally gave up and went to their steel supported ones.

I have put up over 20 above ground Intex pools and have learned a few things in the process:

A: The larger the pool with the air ring at the top the more difficult it is to fill to its maximum potential.

B: Eventually the pool is going to collapse with people in it, especially if someone leans over the edge with their arms on it which is a perfectly natural thing to do.

C: It is virtually impossible to get an area beneath the pool level without scraping the ground and measuring it with, in your case, at least a 16' long 2"x4" on its edge with a level on it.

D: Trying to build up the ground on one side with sand will eventually result in collapse of the pool.

E: There is a type of stiff styrofoam ring that you can buy in sections to go around the bottom of the pools, but that will also result in collapse unless it is used for what it was developed, and that is a rigid wall pool.

F: Out of the three types of pools that Intex sell, the easy up with the air ring (the worst), the steel supported all the way around (next worse). and the rigid side, only the rigid side is forgiving to a tiny degree where unlevel ground is concerned.

For your size of pool everything must be exact and completely level or at one point it will collapse. There is little more discouraging than seeing all those gallons of water run out onto the grass. Once the water goes over the edge, no amount of people can prevent the collapse.

Finally I have learned that, with above ground pools, you get exactly what you pay for. My 5th above ground Intex pool was the best, but even with the ring around the edge at the bottom and the rigid side, I was still wasting my money unless the ground was aboslutely level. You just have to cut away the dirt until the level shows no angle.

I wish you all the luck. If you feel a desire, I have 5 Intex pools in my barn I will give to you if you pay the freight. Each was a dissapointment and a waste of time, energy, and above all, money.

I finally spent about $750 on one, had a professional crew level the ground, and it stays up through the winters even.
