You can use a wet dry vac. Remove the filter cover first.

I have a 15x 42" intex metal frame pool an i also

Most likely you are not. The manual is very conservative!!! I have a 14000 gallon pool and I run my intex salt system during the summer at 10 to 12 hrs pump and 8 to 10 hrs chlorination in between those 12 hrs and my pool stays very clear. But..... If you don't clean the unit and let it alarm for low flow, low salt or not run the unit log enough, you WILL HAVE GREEN WATER!!!
Hope this helps, If it does, please rate the tip!

I have a 13X42 inch Metal Frame Pool and we have added over 55 lbs of salt to our pool and its still green and saying low salt.... what should we do and how much salt does out pool actually need??

You need to get water tested then add the right amount of shock + others and check in a few days to see where the water is at. The salt system only keeps pool right when in balance.

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.

Intex changed product materials of pvc pools

You would think that two tarps would be enough, lol
I would get weed killer and kill the grass or put sand over it. the last suggestion is diggin it up and then putting sand over it to level it back up.
Please rate and let me know if it helps.
thanks and God bless

This is our first year with an intex 18x52 metal frame pool. can we leave it up in the winter and how do you close it?

I don't know how well those hold up during the winter months... it all depends on where you live...

Put in a gallon of shock and a 60% algaecide, let it circulate 8-12 hours and then drain it below the inlet and outlet. Put an air pillow in the middle and then a cover on top of that, secure the cover with a cable. Empty and clean the filter system and hoses then bring it indoors. You MUST take off all the excess water and snow.

Hayward pump hose and intex pool

Im thinking that hot glue would not harden completly in a direct sun situation not to mention the potential mess
What I did was go to my local hardware store and bought rubber o rings ( sorry dont remember what size) put them on the fitting slipped the hose over it and clamped on top of that area. Has been fine all summer

hope you figure it out

My cousin dug out dirt at the high point of the area where we put up the 15' x 48" Intex metal frame pool. It seemed to be filling evenly and looked great. The next day it looked as if a couple of poles...

They say that the pool should be completely even. I dont want to tell you, you have to re-do, but I also don't want to tell you that you shouldn't. Without seeing it, it is hard to say whether or not it would be safe to leave. That being said, attempt to straighten those leaning post, applying something underneath each pole so that they do not sink into the ground further. (which may difficult with the water in)

I personally have put 1/2" slate bricks under each pole post to avoid it sinking into the ground, so it being un-level is not a problem.

Basically only you know what you feel safe doing. I just hope I have helped to give you a solution to the sinking poles issue. If the ground is uneven, even with something under the post, it can still be uneven. It will be hard to get completely even. Ours is off slightly too, but its fine.

Good luck!
