Frequently Asked Questions


In which order should I ideally connect my pool accessories?

The filter system should always be the first part in the water treatment system. The rest of the pool accessoires should only be connected after the filter system.  A heat pump should ideally always be the last part in the water treatment system, so that the filtered, treated water flows through the heat pump and the path of the heated water into the pool is as short as possible.

My order

I would like to cancel my order even though I have not received it yet, is that possible?

This depends on how far advanced the picking process is. If the goods have not yet been picked, the order can still be cancelled, please send an email.

Which service provider do I get my goods from?

We currently deliver parcels exclusively via GLS. Pallet shipments are delivered in AT via the freight forwarder Bexity and in DE via the freight forwarder Schenker.

My package does not include an invoice, how do I get it?

For ecological reasons, we do not print the invoice and enclose it with the package. The package therefore does not include a printed invoice as standard. After the goods have been dispatched, we send the invoice by e-mail to the e-mail address used in the webshop. Customers who have their own customer account in the webshop can also call up the invoice from their customer account at any time.

The article numbers in the parts reference of my operating instructions have five numbers, but in the spare parts shop I only find similar numbers with six numbers. Are they compatible?

In order to be able to differentiate between INTEX and Steinbach articles internally, we put a 1 in front of INTEX article numbers (Steinbach articles begin with 0). The parts are still identical to those in your instructions.

Pool ladders

Can I place the floor mats under the pool?

No, they merely provide additional protection around the pool and can be used to be set under a pool ladder for example.

Pool robots

Where do i put the buoyancy aids?

The buoyancy aids must be glued onto the inside of the upper part of the device - ideally offset and not directly next to each other.

Delivery/ Acceptance of goods

When will my order arrive?

An automatic tracking link will be sent by email after the goods have been shipped. We try to send your goods as quickly as possible, but ask for your understanding that there may be slight delays, especially in the high season. If your order includes a Styrofoam pool, there may be waiting times of up to 6-8 weeks, as the pool liners are specially tailored to the customer's wishes and are therefore a personalised product.

How many INTEX solar mats can I lay in series?

Up to 6 mats - please refer to the instruction manual for more detailed information.

Pool chemistry

Can I also operate the INTEX Cleaning Set de Luxe with a cartridge filter system?

Yes, but note the capacity. The filter system requires a minimum flow rate of 3,028 l/h.A sand filter system with a maximum flow rate of 15,140 l/h would be more efficient here. 

Does the Steinbach Nano Cleaning Sponge dissolve during use?

Yes, the main advantage of this cleaning process is that you do not need any additional cleaning agents - only water.

How do I connect two INTEX floating hoses with 2" external thread?

It is best to use our 2" double nipples ( 062085) - Please note that you also need flat gaskets for sealing ( 0409331).

The connection hoses do not become tight (drip), what can I do?

This can sometimes happen due to production reasons; please refer to our notes in the operating instructions. Weak dripping is best eliminated by wrapping Teflon tape over the affected connections.


Is the cover a safety cover?


Why are there holes in the middle of the cover?

This makes it easy to put the cover away without having to pump out the rainwater first. The size of the drainage holes has been chosen so that rainwater can run off but coarse dirt is retained. The ongoing cleaning effort and the use of water care products can thus be reduced.

What is the purpose of the additional fastening strips?

The additional plastic strips secure your cover against lifting in the wind. 

What is a protective ground cover used for?

A protective ground cover is used to protect the pool liner from dirt. Before you put it on, the ground must be clean of stones, wood or similar.

Can the cabrio dome be left on the pool over winter?

No, the cabrio dome must be dismantled at temperatures below 10°C.

Is the cabrio dome storm-proof?

The convertible dome is very wind-resistant and can be used up to a wind force of max. 3 - 4 Beaufort (max. 28 km/h). If the wind is stronger, it must be removed. 

Can I repair the foil myself?

Small holes can be repaired with a transparent UV-resistant and self-adhesive foil.

Is the pool roof storm-proof?

No, the pool roof must be dismantled in the event of strong winds.

Can the pool roof remain in place during the winter?

No, the foil is not winterproof or frost-proof and has no snow load.

Does the solar cover have exactly the specified dimensions?

No, the manufacturing dimension can deviate due to the material, ambient temperature, etc.

Which side of the solar cover is up or down?

The side with the air knobs must be on the surface of the water.

Why are there holes in the solar cover for INTEX pools?

The small holes in the centre of the solar cover are for safety (same concept as the pool cover). In addition, small holes are distributed near the edge of the solar cover. Sometimes you may notice that the holes are not evenly spread. This will not affect the efficiency or life of your solar cover.

What are the advantages of using a solar cover?

90% of the water heat escapes through the water surface. The use of solar covers significantly reduces this heat loss.

Why does a solar cover for a 305 cm Easy Pool not have a 305 cm diameter?

A 305 cm solar cover fits a 305 cm Frame Pool or Easy Pool; however, this does not mean that the solar cover has a diameter of 305 cm. Please bear in mind that there are two different values for the dimensions of solar covers.

Can the solar cover be placed in full sun to dry?

No, due to the sun's rays and the lack of cooling by the water, the air knobs can burst.

How do you connect the solar cover to the solar cover reel?

With the straps and plastic plates included in the scope of delivery, the solar cover is directly connected to the retractor. This allows any type of solar cover to be attached. The solar tarp can be reinforced on the fastening side, but this is not mandatory. The distance between the straps and the retractor must be long enough for the solar cover to lie completely on the water surface when unrolled.

How do you connect the solar cover to the stainless steel roller?

With this solar cover reel, the solar cover is connected to the aluminum shaft using rubber bands. For this to work, the solar cover must have eyelets on one narrow side. If this is not the case, it can be retrofitted with plastic eyelets at any time. There are plastic eyelets in the well-stocked hardware store. A connection without plastic eyelets is not possible, otherwise the solar cover will tear open.

Where are plastic eyelets fitted?

In connection with this roll-up device, eyelets must be placed in the solar cover. These eyelets should always be mounted on the short side. E.g. for a solar tarp for an 8 x 4 m pool, the eyelets are mounted on the 4 m side.

What is the advantage of covers?

Cover tarpaulins cover the pool 100 %. This also means that there is no pollution in the water. No pollution means less chemical consumption. By reducing evaporation, cooling of the pool water is also massively reduced.

Why do covers have an oversize?

Covers are laid over the entire surface of the water, pulled up to the side, placed over the handrail, folded down and then attached. This requires this excess. (Summer cover: oversize 70 cm = 35 cm per side, winter cover: oversize 130 cm = 65 cm per side) The winter cover is more oversized because the water level is lowered accordingly during the winter months. 

Are there also summer or winter covers for completely buried pools?

Unfortunately, we do not have these covers in our range.

I need a solar cover with special dimensions for my pool, can I buy this from Steinbach?

Unfortunately we do not offer custom-made products. 

Why are summer covers blue and winter covers green?

For easier differentiation, as these covers have certain oversizes. Both are black on the underside. 

Why are the covers black on the underside?

This has a light-reducing effect (light supports algae growth).
