How do I collapse my Intex pool?
- Check your pool chemistry levels to be sure that you are not draining water that may contain very low pH or very high chlorine levels.
- Locate the drain valve on the outside of the pool.
- Connect the female end of a garden hose to the drain connector and you can now drain the pool completely.
Correspondingly, can above ground pool collapse?
Unfortunately, however, above-ground pools can collapse. If the pool has been improperly installed on sloping ground, even the weight of the pool water itself can be enough to cause a collapse.
Also, how unlevel can an Intex pool be? If your Intex pool is placed on an uneven surface, its liner might not rest flat, leading to folds and wrinkles. This can easily be hooked on your pool tools that will rip or tear the liner. For example, poor vacuums can't effectively clean the liners and might destroy them as they get over their fabric.
Additionally, can you leave an Intex pool up all winter?
In warmer climates, Intex advises to keep your pool up, if you prefer. However, you must winterize the pool when keeping it full throughout the winter. If your area maintains tropical climates all year long, you may not need to winterize your pool at all, especially if you use your pool on a regular basis.
Can you put an above ground pool on unlevel ground?
No matter which type you want, it's important to plan the installation carefully. All above-ground pools require flat space covered in either grass or sand to operate safely. If you install your pool on uneven ground, you could have trouble with the pool walls, water level, and the liner.
