  1. Random question. I have an Intex 633t pump, did everything, plugged it in, and powered it on. I let water into the filter part, but forgot to do it to let water into the motor part before turning it on.
    It sounded like it was trying, then made a sound, and now it off.
    I hope it overheated and just needs to cool off but I am worried I burned the motor.
    INTEX is closed today and I saw your YouTube tutorial and was hoping you could give me some advice, since you seem to know a bit about the INTEX pumps. Any advice you can give me? Did I burn it out?

    1. Unfortunately, there is a very good chance you burned it out. If it won’t come back on then it’s probably toast. I’ve done this once myself. Hopefully it will turn back on after you let it cool down. One other thing.. make sure you didn’t trip the breaker in the electric line. Reset that if so and try again.

  2. Hey Craig, I just got my 18’x48 set up in my yard. Used your affiliate links as much as I could. Just wanted to say thank you so much for these videos and details. Looking at the instruction manual(s!!!) I would have been lost. This wasn’t a planned thing for our family but your information and demonstrations made this so much easier of a process!

    1. Thanks for using my links Todd! That helps a lot. I’m glad the videos have helped you. I’m looking to release more in the next few weeks. Enjoy your pool!

  3. Hi Craig! Took a minute, but we finally found your excellent videos and teaching blog. There’s nothing quite like what you are doing, and it is such a gift. Thank you for sharing your knowledge! I am definitely using your links, and will recommend you to others. We wondered if you have a new link for the three inch chlorine tabs. The current link seems to be unavailable. Best Wishes!

  4. Hi Craig!
    First of all, thank you for these videos! I am a first time pool owner and have no clue what I’m doing and your videos are simple and to the point. I purchased a 12 foot x 33 inch pool and I’ve just filled it up. I have 1 inch chlorine tablet. How many would you recommend I put in my floater to start? Also, I am using your links. Thanks again!

    1. Hi Kim! Sorry, I just saw this.. Thanks for using my links! You should be fine with just 1 tablet. Since it’s a smaller pool I would take the floater out while you are it. Hope this helps!

  5. Hi Craig, We had to move our 4 year old pool 16X48 and noticed a couple small tears on the bottom. We started filling it up and it seems to quit leaking. Should we patch it or just let it go? Was going to get new one but seems everyone in the world are sold out and backed up until at least sept.

    1. Seeing how hard it is to get a new pool right now I would try to patch it. I’ve patched them in the past with success. Not the best thing but could definitely last for another year if not too bad. Good luck!

  7. Hi there. Thanks so much for this guide. My kids are well below 10 years old so I have to get a smaller intex pool such as the 6′ by 20″. There are no pumps attached or anything. How would I chlorinate that? I’m assuming I would need to get the floating skimmer and 1 inch tablets but right now, only 3inch tabs are available. Would I break the tablet in half? Im really quite clueless on what all i need to get/do. Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Nikki,

      You’re right, the best bet would be a floating skimmer w/ 1 inch tablets. You could break 3″ tablets in half I suppose. Just be sure to read the instructions on the tablets and don’t combine or mix tablets. I never would have thought of this except I got a “warning” in the last batch of tablets.
