I have active kids and their friends and this has held up for 2 summers and will for a couple more I expect. LEVEL is essential and the hardest part of any above ground pool. 2 days hard work to get level ground and 2 hours to set up the pool. Presto.
We've had no leaks.
Get the saltwater system. It rocks! I have ONLY added salt and vacuumed. Zero extra chemicals. It sparkles.
One happy, lazy mom. Nuff said.
This is a wonderful pool, easy to set up, maintain, and take down. Unfortunately we stored it in a shed that had some mice and they made a mess of it and now we need to buy some new parts. I would recommend this pool to all!
This is a great pool! My 8 year old daughter and her friends have spent hours in it. Nice pool for the adults to grab a raft and float around in also. I gave a lower score to quality because the pump is weak, it works, but is whimpy. The whole salt water thing looked to complicated for us. We use an occasional shock, maybe a little ph-up, and keep the filter clean. We may grab a stronger pump and sand filter off of [.] in the off season. Other than that we have no complaints and have had it up for three months.
BEST thing we have ever spent money on!!!!!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! This is our 4th summer with it and it is still going strong!! We take it down in October and store it in our garage so it will not get weathered. We also had a cement pad poured for it so we would not have to worry about it being level. Goes up in an hour. Also invested in the Intex Salt Water System. Another great buy!! NO CHEMICALS!!!! Second summer we added a solar system for about [$] and yesterday our pool was 85 degrees!!!!! Perfect size for us!!!
I have had several Intex pools in the past and always HATED the filter pumps that took those little paper cartridges. I knew this time around I wanted a sand filter pump and since this pool came with the sand pump I took a chance. This pump is awesome!!! It is so much stronger than any of the cartridge pumps I've had in the past. So far it has kept my water crystal clear....something the cartridge pumps never did! While I do wish this pool had come with a vacuum and surface skimmer that was easily remedied by ordering both off of amazon. The liner and poles on this pool are definitely made better than blue liner pools and the design of the pool is a HUGE improvement compared to the older style intex pools. Overall I am thrilled!!
Set up really was a breeze. We rented a sod cutter and made sure to get the ground level before we started. I have heard these do not have to be as level as the easy set pools, but after spending [$] on a pool we wanted to be problem free once we put it together.
Easy to put together
Filter and pool is sturdy and seems to be of heavy duty quality
Grey outside, and blue and white inside looks nice
Comes with cover and ground cloth
No vacuum have to purchase that seperate.
This thing is heavy!!! but hey its a big pool what do you expect
No included patch kit...purchased one at [...] just in case
After it fills I will come back and update
