Intex Pool?

Intex swimming pools must be placed on a flat, level surface consisting of grass, compacted dirt or pavement. Never place the pool on mud, wooden decks, balconies or any other elevated surface. Check residential city codes to see if you are required to install a fence around the pool area for safety purposes.
