Installing a rectangular above ground swimming pool in your backyard could be an economical and practical way for your family to enjoy lots of splashes under the heat of summer sunshine. Above ground swimming pools are great items to have, and they’re available in many sizes and varieties that you can choose from. Compared to the in-ground swimming pools, they’re obviously a cost-effective way to have your own pool at home.
If you want to save even more by installing the rectangular above ground swimming pool by yourself instead of paying someone to handle the job, it could be relatively simple especially if you have any Intex swimming pools. Here are some steps to install it.
Firstly, gather up things that you probably need. Rake and shovel the ground to smooth it out before placing your rectangular above ground swimming pool. Prior to doing this, do some research to find an ideal place in your backyard to place the pool.
After the first step done, measure out an area in your backyard that is a little bit larger than the above-ground swimming pool. Mark that area using tape or plastic rope, or anything available in hands. This is the area to install the rectangular above ground swimming pool that you need to level and clear. Remove all the grass, rocks and corals twigs or any other debris which could puncture the pool.
Once the ground is cleared of all those rocks and grass, level it out to flatten the surface. Many homeowners covered the ground with sand (you can buy it if necessary) to ensure that the ground is free from all potential hazards to their pools, however, this is optional. A lot of above ground swimming pools will come with a plastic ground cloth and you should use this on the bottom of your pool whether you use the sand or not.
Next, you should put down the above ground pool liner and extend it on the canvas and after that put the rails for the pool together. If you have an inflatable pool, you can basically spread out the pool liner and inflate the ring on top. Begin to fill your above ground pool with water and work out different wrinkles on the base while gradually covering the bottom with water. Expelling wrinkles is essential regardless to which sort of above ground pool you have.
If you have a metal pole supported swimming pool, such as the Intex Metal Frame pool, stand up your supports and set up all those supports together. Slide the posts through any of the slots or sleeves that you have on the pool. Your particular pool setup directions can be helpful here, as it will let you know where they are located.
When this process is finished, you may begin placing water into your pool, working out any outstanding wrinkles and looking to check whether your pool has dips or high spots in it. Pay extra attention to the edges of your rectangular above ground swimming pool. If those edges are off level, your pool dividers will have less support and may bring about the pool dividers to fizzle after some time.
As the final step, you will interface your hoses or more ground pool pumps while the pool is filling. Take after the manufacturer’s guidelines for your specific rectangular above ground swimming pool to ensure that it functions properly. Assemble your pool steps or ladder and put it where you need it to be. Once the pool is full, test the water and add the chemicals to guarantee the water remains clear and ready for you to go swimming.
