"I bought this pool for my family in June 2020 since our local pool and racquet club had closed due to the pandemic. It fit perfectly in our large RV carport and set up was reasonably easy with 2 adults and a teenager. Since it's covered by a carport, it stayed very clean. My husband made a solar heater for it that really helped get the temperature to a comfortable level. The pump, filter, and cover that came with it have all been fine. Getting ready to fill it up again for its second summer. I would buy this pool again if I ever need another. "
"It is a good pool for small kids, my 7-year-old can stand very easily. Once filled it did have a leak around one of the intakes. Repaired it and now good to go. Make sure you put the powder in where the rails go. it is a must for putting them in. It is more like 33-inch height because if you go to the 36 you are right at the edge of the liner in the corners. Water will spill out if you fill that high. I had a better pump so I cannot say anything about that. the spot you put it must be flat, and level, a must! The sides bow in until it is filled to the correct height. The ladder could be better but it works. Overall I am glad that I bought it. "
"Easy to install everything works great my only complaint is when it was being delivered they were supposed to call but just showed up. If the kids would not have been home it would have gone bad."
"Love it! Not that bad to set up, but you do need two people. Just put it up about a week ago and we have all been in almost everyday since. For family summer fun it is a great deal."
"In May of 2018, we started considering an above ground pool. After extensive research and reviews, we decided on Intex. We didn't really have the space for a 16 x 8 x 42" Prism Frame Rectangular pool in our backyard, but we did have the space on the back patio. So we ordered several hundred square ft of 1/2 thick rubber interlocking floor mats as well as some very heavy duty tarps to build a base for a pool on our patio. We also researched how most pool retailers configure the pools to be as low cost as possible and cut the pump capacity to the absolute minimum; so we also ordered the Intex 2500 GPH pool pump. Research also showed that a salt water system would make pool maintenance much easier, so we added an Intex 15000 gallon salt generator. Install of this pool was a breeze. Again, research and reading the instructions, (and even the videos) made this a smooth installation. Please pay attention to all of the advice to get the pool level before adding water. We also learned that the water hose in the front of the house fed more than twice as much water per hour as the hose in the backyard (different size water supply lines). We added the Intex rectangular pool cover for less than $30. The salt add was so easy; drop in about 60lbs (a bag and a half) from Lowes. Spare filters were more affordable per filter when we bought 12 at a time. After reading that filters can be cleaned with a garden hose as long as you clean them while they are still very wet from the pool, we began to only replace filters once every 4 to 5 weeks. We had a very nice summer in the pool. Pool maintenance was a breeze with salt water; about twice a month I'd carefully clean the salt generator plates and clean the pump filter. Other than that, skimming a few bugs here and there was the extent of the maintenance. The water was always so soft when we got in, must have something to do with the salt water. We only had to deal with dissolved solids and add acid over the last 5 weeks of the season. If we had built or bought a pool water heater; we could have easily extended the season into November, but we decided to take to pool down and store it instead. This year (2019), we pulled the pool out of storage and got it back up and going with very little effort and month earlier than last year. We really didn't need to buy too many new or replacement items; just another rectangular pool cover. We did order a few plastic replacement connector type parts from Intex but it we were able to get by with the install w/o using most of them; they'll be needed for next year. This year, we're building a DIY pool water warmer using several black hoses coiled on painted plywood and small sump pump in an effort to off-set cooler May weather and maybe extend the season into November. One tip about the local pool retailers; the water analysis is helpful, but make sure to know your total gallons and tell them your using a salt generator before they start testing. If I had it to do all over again, I'd definitely go with Intex again. I'd definitely go with the Intex Salt Generator and the larger pump. The one thing I would do differently is buy a deeper Intex pool. Looking back at the various accessory costs, pool skimmer, pump filters, garden hoses, water temp gauges, leaf strainer, pool noodles, etc; they would all be the same...but a little more cost for a deeper pool would definitely make the experience better for our family."
