Above Ground Intex Pool

Postby alarm_guy1 » Sun 01 Apr, 2012 13:04

Hi guys,

I have an intex 10ft steel framed above ground pool
madpools.co.uk/Intex-10ft-x-30-Metal-Frame-Above-Ground-Pool-(56997)-November-Price.html

I have a sand filter using 1.5" pipework, has anyone tried putting proper return jets and a skimmer onto this type of pool, and was it successful?

many thanks in advance

Keith

In all my experience, I've never seen it done. But I'm quite sure, with some ingenuity, a talent for building frame work and mounts, it could be done using their skimmer product line that hangs over the edge as shown;

But if you ask me in my professional opinion, rather than fashion questionable gadgetry and odd and ends, a simple pool cover after swimming pool usage will solve the debris problem:
