WARNING
The pool location must allow you to secure all doors, windows, and safety
barriers to prevent unauthorized, unintentional or unsupervised pool entry.
Install a safety barrier that will eliminate access to the pool for young children and pets.
Failure to set up the pool on flat, level, compact ground and to assemble, and
fill with water in accordance with the following instructions could result in the pool’s collapse or the possibility that a person lounging in the pool could be swept out/ejected, resulting in serious injury or property damage.
Risk of electric shock: connect the filter pump only to a grounding type receptacle protected by a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) or residual current device (RCD). To reduce the risk of an electrical shock, do not use
extension cords, timers, plug adapters or converter plugs to connect the pump
to an electrical supply. Always provide a properly located outlet. Locate the cord where it cannot be damaged by lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, and other
equipment. See the filter pump manual for additional warnings and instructions.
Select an outdoor location for the pool with the following in requirements
mind:
1. The area where the pool is to be set up must be absolutely flat and level. Do not set up the pool on a slope or inclined surface.
2. The ground surface must be compacted and firm enough to withstand the pressure and weight of a fully set up pool. Do Not set up the pool on mud, sand, soft or loose soil
conditions.
3. Do Not set up the pool on a deck, balcony or platform.
4. The pool requires at least 5 - 6 feet (1.5 - 2.0 m) of space all around pool from objects that a child could climb on to gain access to the pool.
5. The chlorinated poolwater could damage the surrounding vegetation. Certain types of grass such as St. Augustine and Bermuda, may grow through the liner. Grass growing through the liner it is not a manufacture defect and is not covered under warranty.
6. If the ground is not concrete (i.e., if it is asphalt, lawn or earth) you must place a piece of pressure-treated wood, size 15” x 15” x 1.2” (38 x 38 x 3cm), under each U-shaped
support and flush with the ground. Alternatively you may use steel pads or reinforced tiles.
7. Consult your local pool supply retailer for advice on support pads.

POOL SETUP (continued)
You may have purchased this pool with the Intex Krystal Clear™ filter pump. The
pump has its own separate set of installation instructions. First assemble your pool
unit and then set up the filter pump.
Estimated assembly time 60~90 minutes. (Note the assembly time is only
approximate and individual assembly experience may vary.)
1. •Find a flat, level location that is free and clear of stones, branches or other sharp objects that may puncture the pool liner or cause injury.
•Open the carton containing the liner, joints, legs, etc., very carefully as this carton can be used to store the pool during the winter months or when not in use.
• Remove the ground cloth (14) from 1
5 - 6' (1.5 - 2.0 m)
carton. Spread it out completely with its edges being at least 5 - 6’
(1.5 - 2.0 m) from any obstacle such LINER
as walls, fences, trees, etc. Remove 5 - 6'
the liner (15) from carton and spread 5 - 6'
(1.5 - 2.0 m)
it out over the ground cloth with the (1.5 - 2.0 m)
ELECTRICAL SOURCE
drain valve towards the draining area.
Place the drain valve away from the house. Open it up to warm it in the sun. This warming will make installation easier. Make sure the liner is centered atop the ground cloth. Be sure to face the end with the 2 hose connectors towards the electrical power source.
IMPORTANT: Do not drag the liner across the ground as this can cause liner damage and pool leakage (see drawing 1).
•During the set-up of this pool liner point the hose connections or
openings in the direction of the
electric power source. The outer
edge of the assembled pool is to be within reach of the electrical
connection for the optional filterpump.

10. Assemble the ladder. The ladder has separate assembly instructions in the ladder
box.
11. Place the assembled ladder over one of the sides with one of the liner installation team members entering the pool to smooth out all bottom liner wrinkles. While inside the pool this team member checks the 2 drain valves (in corners) to be sure the inside drain plug
is inserted into the valve. This team member pushes each inside corner in an outward direction.
12. Before filling the pool with water, ensure that the drain plug inside the pool is closed and
that the drain cap on the outside is screwed on tightly. Fill the pool with no more than 1 inch (2.5 cm) of water. Check to see whether the water is level.
IMPORTANT: If the water in the pool flows to one side, the pool is not completely level. Setting up the pool on unleveled ground will cause the pool to tilt resulting in the sidewall material to bulge. If the pool is not completely level, you must drain the pool, level the area and re-fill the pool.
Smooth out the remaining wrinkles (from inside the pool) by pushing out where the pool floor and pool sides meet. Or, (from outside pool) reach under the side of the pool , grasp the pool floor and pull it out. If the ground cloth is causing the wrinkles, have 2 persons pull from either side to remove all wrinkles.
13. Fill the pool with water up to just below the sleeve line. (see drawing 10).

Before allowing anyone to use the pool, hold a family meeting. Establish a set of
rules that include, at a minimum, the important safety rules and general
aquatic safety information in this manual. Review these rules on a regular basis
and with all users of the pool, including guests.

POOL MAINTENANCE & CHEMICALS
WARNING
•
•
•
REMEMBER TO
Protect all pool occupants from possible water-related illnesses by keeping the pool water clean and sanitized. Do not swallow the pool water. Always practice good hygiene.
Keep your pool clean and clear. The pool floor must be visible at all times from the outside barrier of the pool.
Keep children away from pool covers to avoid entanglement, drowning, or other serious injury.
Water maintenance
The maintenance of a proper water balance through appropriate use of sanitizers is the
single most important factor in maximizing the life and appearance of the liner as well
as ensuring clean, healthy and safe water. Proper technique is important for water
testing and treating the pool water. See your pool professional for chemical, test kits
and testing procedures. Be sure to read and follow the written instructions from the
chemical manufacturer.
1. Never let chlorine come in contact with the liner if it is not completely dissolved. Dissolve granular or tablet chlorine first in a bucket of water, then add it to the pool water. Likewise with liquid chlorine; mix it immediately and thoroughly with the pool water.
2. Never mix chemicals together. Add the chemicals to the pool water separately. Thoroughly dissolve each chemical before adding another one to the water.
3. An Intex pool skimmer and an Intex pool vacuum are available to assist in maintaining clean pool water. See your pool dealer for these pool accessories.
4. Do not use a pressure washer to clean the pool.

How to Drain Your Pool and Long Term Storage
NOTE: This pool has drain valves installed in 2 corners. Connect the garden hose to the corner valve that directs the water to the appropriate location.
1. Check local regulations for specific directions regarding disposal of swimming pool water.
2. Check to make sure that the drain plug inside the pool is plugged in place.
3. Remove the cap from the drain valve on the outside pool wall.
4. Attach the female end of the garden hose to the drain connector (16).
5. Place the other end of the hose in an area where the water can be safely drained away from the house and other nearby structures.
6. Attach the drain connector to the drain valve. NOTE: The drain connector will push
the drain plug open inside the pool and water will start to drain immediately.
7. When the water stops draining, start lifting the pool from the side opposite the drain, leading any remaining water to the drain and emptying the pool completely.
8. Disconnect hose and adapter when finished.
9. Re-insert drain plug in drain valve on inside of pool for storage.
10.Replace drain cap on outside of pool.
11.Reverse the set up instructions to disassemble the pool, and remove all connecting parts.
12.Be sure that the pool and all parts are completely dry before storage. Air dry the liner in the sun for an hour before folding (see drawing 11). Sprinkle some talcum powder to prevent vinyl from sticking together and to absorb any residual moisture.
13.Create rectangular shape. Starting at one side, fold one-sixth of liner in on itself twice. Do the same on the opposite side (see drawings 12.1 & 12.2).
14.Once you have created two opposing folded sides, simply fold one over the other like closing a book (see drawings 13.1 & 13.2).
15.Fold the two long ends to the middle (see drawing 14).
16.Fold one over the other like closing a book and finally compact the liner (see
drawing 15).
17.Store the liner and accessories in a dry, temperature controlled, between 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius) and 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius), storage location.
18.The original packing can be used for storage.

WINTER PREPARATIONS
Winterizing your Above Ground Pool
After usage, you can easily empty and store away your pool in a safe
place. Some pool owners, however, choose to leave their pool up all
year round. In cold areas, where freezing temperatures occur, there
can be a risk of ice damage to your pool. We therefore recommend
you drain, disassemble and properly store the pool, when the
temperature drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius).
Also see the section ''How To Drain Your Pool''.
Should you choose to leave your pool out, prepare it as follows:
1.Clean the pool water thoroughly. If the type is an Easy Set Pool or an Oval Frame Pool, make sure that the top ring is properly inflated.
2.Remove the skimmer (if applicable) or any accessories attached to the threaded strainer connector. Replace strainer grid if necessary. Be sure all accessories parts are clean and completely dry before storage.
3.Plug the Inlet and Outlet fitting from the inside of the pool with the plug provided (sizes 16' and below). Close the Inlet and Outlet Plunger Valve (sizes 17' and above).
4.Remove the ladder (if applicable) and store in a safe place. Be sure the ladder is completely dry before storage.
5.Remove the hoses that connect the pump and filter to the pool.
6.Add the appropriate chemicals for the winter period. Consult your local pool dealer as to which chemicals you should use and how to use them. This can vary greatly by region.
7.Cover pool with Intex Pool Cover. IMPORTANT NOTE: INTEX POOL COVER IS NOT A SAFETY COVER.
8.Clean and drain the pump, filter housing and hoses. Remove and discard the old filter cartridge. Keep a spare cartridge for the next season.
9.Bring pump and filter parts indoors and store in a safe and dry area, preferably between 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius) and 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius).

GENERAL AQUATIC SAFETY
Water recreation is both fun and therapeutic. However, it involves
inherent risks of injury and death. To reduce your risk of injury, read
and follow all product, package and package insert warnings and
instructions. Remember, however, that product warnings, instructions
and safety guidelines cover some common risks of water recreation,
but do not cover all risks and dangers.
For additional safeguards, also familiarize yourself with the following
general guidelines as well as guidelines provided by nationally recognized Safety Organizations:
• Demand constant supervision. A competent adult should be appointed as
a “lifeguard” or water watcher, especially when children are in and around
the pool.
• Learn to swim.
• Take the time to learn CPR and first aid.
• Instruct anyone who is supervising pool users about potential pool hazards and about the use of protective devices such as locked doors, barriers, etc. • Instruct all pool users, including children what to do in case of an
emergency.
• Always use common sense and good judgement when enjoying any water activity.
• Supervise, supervise, supervise.
