This is the best substitute for a real pool! It is HUGE!! and deep! The kids can swim laps, do somersaults, play on rafts...the list goes on. Also, as an adult I can get in some laps too! It's easy to set up but takes some time, especially if there is only two people...but you can do it. Just give yourself the whole day to set it up...don't rush! We purchased the salt water filter seperate and really love it also...alittle confusing on how to get both working at the same time...but I left that up to my husband:) Even if this pool only last one summer it is well worth it!! Althought I think it will last several summers as it is built very well...storing it my be the only problem.

I had heard so many horror stories about these above ground pools and how hard they are to put up, etc, etc, etc. I gotta say, WOW, this was so simple. It does help to have about 3-4 people working on it, but it is definitely do-able with 2 people, easily. Having more people just made it go quicker. I think we had the pool up in 40 minutes (that time does not include the levelling of the land, but that doesn't pertain to the pool review, right?). The filter was simple also. Big thick booklet was scary, but still very simple. Had the filter done, by myself, in 10 minutes. Salt was dirt cheap. Took two days to fill (only running about 8 hours per day). If I have any problems in the future, I may re-post, but as of right now, 100% happy. Ladder coulda been more sturdy, however, the entire pool with accessories was only $800, so it's understandable.

We are really enjoying this pool...we bought the 12 foot round because our yard is on the small side and its great!! This is our first pool so I'm still a little nervous about mastering the chemicals but so far I'm doing ok...and it IS true about the leveling being the hardest part of the installation process...after my husband got that out of the way we were on easy street...it took about 3 days from start to finish. The ladder could be better though...it's very flimsy. Other than that we love it!! The filter cartridge it came with is pretty weak so plan to buy some better ones from your pool store...And the garden hose vacuum is going to be your best bet. Get all your supplies before your pool arrives cuz once you set it up, you wont ever want to get out lol

I just adore this pool. I've had about 3 of them so far. After about the second year, there are either too many holes or the pump dies and it is just cheaper and easier to buy another one. That being said, it is the best money I spend for summer fun. It's great to have for playing in during back-yard bbq's and other get-togethers. I also love just relaxing in it after work on those hot summer nights. There is an issue with needing to be on a flat surface, so to solve that I actually built a large sandbox for it to sit in. It makes it easy to level, the floor is comfortable to step on and it's like having my own private beach (since I made the box large enough for chairs too. Overall, you can't go wrong for this price, and it is just common sense to set up.

Review:

This is my second intex pool. We used to have a similar one (18x10), but it was round. It lasted 4 years. I did take it down after each summer was over. This new pool is very much the same. Easy to put up. All you do is lay it down on flat ground, blow up the ring, insert the poles and fill up. It took about 7 hours to fill up. I did upgrade to the bigger pump. I had this pump from my previous pool. I think the pump it came with is too small for the pool unless you plan on running it all day. I put my pool up Memorial Weekend. I run my pump 2 hours a day, and it is now the end of June, and my pool is still crystal clear. My whole family is enjoying this pool. It is very large and enough for many kids and adults to play in. I am going to try to leave this one up and just winterize it. I hope it works but this one is just way too heavy and big for me to store.
