Intex Pool Setup

One of the main advantages of Intex pools is that they are quite easy to set up compared to inground or hard-walled above ground pools. The most difficult part of the job is preparing the site. For suggestions on that, see the pages about scribing a circle on your siteclearing grass, creating a level site, whether or not to use a sand base, and the importance of using a ground barrier.

Once you have your site prepared correctly, the pool setup is actually quite simple. With an easy set pool, you & a helper may have the pool ready for water in as little as 20-30 minutes. With a frameset pool, your pool should be ready for water in 45 to 90 minutes.

  1. how big of a footprint do I need for a 24x12x52 frame pool. I would like to start the ground work while my pool is being shipped

    • Hi Al, you will probably want to make the footprint for your pool at least one foot larger than the nominal dimensions of 24’x12’x52″. This will give you some room to spare when you are setting the pool up. If you want to add a flowerbed or some other kind of landscaping, you could make the footprint a little bigger.
