Deal Details

Last Edited by BostonGirl September 4, 2013 at 01:32 PM
Hey Folks,

I have been keeping an eye on this. I bought one 4 years ago and love it. It is starting to rust a little and I was worried they would stop making this.

Even though the website said $279, I checked the store. They had it marked down to $119. They had an 18' for $149. I didn't look at the price for the 20'.

Anyway, here is the web link for reference:

Don't forget to use your Red Card for anothe 5% off.

Good luck to those who are interested.

Stan

Found and picked up 20' x 52" with sand filter near Sacramento this morning. $213 out the door. Had to drive 2hrs so add another $60 to that. But still well worth this deal.

Now to clear out a 20ft + circle in my hilly backyard. That might not be worth it. Thanks OP! lol

I also plan to buy two more solar panels for my grid tie system so that should negate any added electric pump bill and then some.

Scored the 20' x 52" at the North Austin Target, then went to the East Austin Target and picked up the last saltwater system, which is on clearance for $100.48. I did see the East Austin store had 2 18' and 2 16' pools left on clearance.

I think their replacement plan would be totally worth it for $17 bucks if you can just bring it back in the store and get a replacement on the spot .. especially if you have an issue in the summertime when you actually need the thing to work .. Intex customer service is the worst and they are really slow with everything.

"$17.00 Target 2-Year Replacement Plan (covers items $100.00-$199.99)"

Keep in mind, the 16 x 48 weighs 178 lbs I think. Don't be driving up in your compact car with 2 kids in the back thinking you can get this on the way home.
Haha. Soooo True. It fit in my Volks Passat but I had to take it out of the box. Couldn't get much in trunk, so it's covering my backseat at the moment.

I live next to a river and so I uses them electric pumps to pump the water and critters from the local river into my pool.

In this way, I can be as frugal with a 1x water usage per session as possible. Keeping the cost down and swimming in such water is as natural as you can get.

Maybe next year, i'll add a few local fishes into my pool too. Swim with the fishes, oh yeah.

Scored one 16' one. Now here is a question to the owners: How flat should the flat ground be? My backyard is fairly flat, but it has a little V shape for drain if you know what I mean (the inner angle of the V would be something like 170 degrees).

You arent going to want to hear this, but completely flat... We actually had to pay landscapers to flatten ours...

Grabbed the last 20'x52" at the Colonie NY store.

I got very lucky since the red clearance sticker said $499.98, but I scanned the bar code and it came up as $209.98! Hell, that wrong sticker is probably the only reason it still sat there waiting for me!

Score!

Picked one up tonight it was marked at $250 but when I took it up to the register it came up at $120. I went back later and bought the salt water pump for $100.

AND .. you CAN'T use sand to make it level, it has to be real flat AND tamped down kind of flat.

My father in law and the guys who work for him didn't know this and used sand and when the water filled it up the water was all uneven so for two summers my water level has been just above the skimmer inlet enough for the pool to work, and the water return has been above water so it looks like it is a water cannon .. .. ..
at least the kids have fun with that part but if there is ever any water spillage, I have to fill it up to get it above the water inlet for the filter to work.

Ok, thanks for the reply. I think I will have to bring some guys in. I talked to someone who advertised on craigslist. He would do it for $400. Is it a good price? He says that they have been doing it for 15 years. He also said that I should not put sand in there. Just get the sod removed and the ground level, because the sand tends to run down with rain and stuff. I plan on putting a padding and maybe one more layer of tarp on it. Would the flat leveled no-sod ground be good enough or you have to have sand on there?

From what I have seen in the video that comes with it and have read on other boards, you can't put anything under it(other than a tarp/ground cover that comes with it).

I think if you get the ground down to the dirt and level/tamp that off, put the ground cover they give you on top of the dirt, and then put the pool up .. that should be all you do. It specifically tells you NOT to use sand, but he(and I) did not read the manual and I thought he knew what he was doing Smilie Live and learn!

PS .. I can't comment on the price because he did it for free, and I sort of fixed it myself, so I don't know if that is any good or not.

That's about what I paid... $360 comes to mind, and yes I only use a tarp...

Picked one up on Friday for $119. Got the salt water pump a week earlier for $60. Like a boss.
