Here is a list of things you’ll need for your Intex EasySet Pool. If you have a pool then the chlorine tablets, filters and pump are the main things you’ll need to get.Continue reading →
I really love this pool. Never thought I’d say that. Here we are 6 years into having it. It’s been perfect until now. We started getting some tiny air leaks in the ring. We’ve patched them but it may be too much to deal with next year. We’ll see!!!
Here’s a link to the patch kit:
Your first week with your Intex EasySet Pool should be relatively quiet. If this is year 2+ for your pool like me you’re going to see your pool filter look like mine in the video.
It’s a simple fix. Clean it with the hose and reuse it. Also, clean the dirty water out of the pump (just pour it out like I did). Viola! You’re back in business.Continue reading →
This is the 6th year for my pool. Here are the steps that I’ve taken to install the pool.
- Make sure you have a nice level yard
- Lay a tarp down
- Lay your pool down and clean it
- Blow up the ring
- Install the inlet/outlets and shutoff valves (don’t forget to make sure the drain plugs are closed!)
- Add water – push out the bottom with your feet while filling (don’t go crazy with it – you just want to remove wrinkles) 10 inches is good if you’re like me and have water delivered.
- Have water delivered
- Hook up pump
This is an often overlooked and terrible mistake that people make with Intex EasySet Pools. These pools last and are very reliable BUT you need to be sure you don’t make this mistake.Continue reading →
TRY #2 – Custom Vacuum contraption.
After my first vacuum rig job (linked here) fell apart while using it, I went back to the drawing board. I used what I had lying around the house.
Normal weekly maintenance for my Intex EasySet Pool is simple.
1. Check the Chlorine Tablets – I make sure I have at least 2 full tablets but no more than 3 tablets total in the floater.
2. Check the pool filter – clean if necessary.
We have been getting hammered with rain storms. Our EasySet pool has collected, at least, an extra 6 inches of water.
Warning: Keep your water level below the top ring or you risk the whole pool collapsing and losing all your water!
Here’s how I removed some dirt from the pool and lowered our water level at the same time.
It’s year FIVE for our pool. TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! Here’s our installation video.
The trick to keep your pool from getting holes/cracks and staying clean is to know what to do and to use the proper accessories/products.
Here’s a list of everything for my pool. Before I started doing it this way my pool was a mess. Now, I spend almost no time maintaining the pool and it stays crystal clear.

EasySet Pool Installation Tips:
1. Start with a LEVEL clean surface (no rocks or debris)
2. Place a tarp on the area and under your pool
3. Clean the pool out of any dirt that may be on it
4. Spread the pool out completely and start filling it with garden hose.
5. Work out wrinkles while filling it with the garden hose (after a couple of inches of water you won’t be able to remove wrinkles!)
6. Use 2 3″ Chlorine tablets (see above) at all times (for a 18×48 pool)
7. Clean the filter once per week.
8. Use the hose to clean off the filter and reuse it – I do at least 2 times before replacing with a new one.
9. Run the pump every night for at least 7 hours.
This will take you a good 15 minutes a week. YES, that is it!
Thanks for watching and have fun!
