i love the pool and so do my children, its not too big or too small. me and my kids were in it. and they are 4 and 2. its perfect for grandmas that come and swim with the kids and big enough for the baby to go in the pool in his floaty as well. great item for a cheap price.
We filled the tube with an air compressor and it only took minutes. As long as the pool is on even ground it will fill evenly. If you have a slope to your lawn you will have issues. We placed our on our back patio concrete and there is a slight slope but no issues. You need to maintain this pool with chemicals and change the filter every two weeks. They run about [...]. Surprisingly the filter really picks up some nasty gunk. We are totally impressed to get this good of a pool for the price [...] and plan to get at least 3 more years of out it.

Some people just can't be pleased! I love it this pool!
First off, the first year we had ours, we blew it up by mouth, unless you have asthma or emphesyma, this shouldn't really be that hard. I've had pool floats that require more air. The 2nd & 3rd year we used our [$] zark Trail electric air mattress pump to fill our ring. [...] It is literally a huge bag that you fill with water. Regarding the comment about the water not filling the pool evenly... that means you didn't put the pool on LEVEL ground. You have to put ANY pool on a level surface and the angle of your backyard is not exactly a pool manufacturer's fault. [...] It seems as though the reviewers of this item were expecting an olympic quality pool for less than [$]. This is the first year I've had the printed pool, but we've had the smaller 8 ft size Intex pool for the past 4 years. My first pool AND pump is still in great condition, we just wanted to upsize. If you take care of your pool & follow the instructions, you shouldn't have a problem!
My problem isn't with Target it's with Intex. The pool did not come with all the parts. When I contacted Intex they said I had to fill out a claim form and it will take up to two weeks to get the parts. This pool has fairly good reviews elsewhere but the only problem I've seen is with missing parts.
Great deal, easy set up with some help. Use level ground, tarps and sand to protect bottom lining of pool as it is thin. Fills in about 10 hours. Ideal for 4 kids and 2 adults. Gets you wet, cools you down, provides basics for kids pool parties.
The outer ring is a lil thin use caution when letting dogs in pool.
This was our second pool cause the 10x30 was just too small for us.
No ladder to get in. Gotta kinda roll in and out. True to size on this one as compared to the 10x30. It was more like a 8x25.
This one is 14x34 once set up.
I'm on year 2 of this pool and think it is fantastic! Yes, you need to be sure the ground is "completely level" but it does say that and yes you need a small air compressor to blow up the ring, but I used an air mattress pump and it worked great. As long as you read the directions and plan accordingly it goes up fine. And in year two it went up even quicker!!
I think it's totally reasonable in price and enjoy it all summer long. I have no doubts I will get another year or two out of it.
Just purchased this pool for summer house in Jacksonville NC and loved it so much we purchased another or our home in Blacksburg VA. very easy to set up. easy to take down and store. Very low maintenance. Good quality! [...] Cant say enough GOOD about this pool! Loving it!!!
I've had this Intex pool for 4 years, and it just keeps on giving.Previous to the Intex I had another named brand...not at all is as sturdy as Intex.I hope they do not stop making this size as the smaller diameter is only 30 in depth. I take the filter cartridge out weekly and rinse, they last longer and keep the pool cleaner, and I also have a skimmer and cover, which keeps the bugs out.Great item Target & Intex!!!!!
I can't rave enough about this pool! My only regret is that I didn't buy the bigger one (15 x 42). I was a little bit hesitant to buy it...I didn't have a clue how to take care of a pool...but once you set it up and use it, the time it takes to care for it is WELL worth it. I did buy the starter chemical kit, which I highly recommend, and extra filters, and the pool net cleaner (we used part of our winter roof rake pole as a handle for the net saving some money). Also, I recently bought the floating feeder for the chlorine which is awesome...I should have bought it right away since chlorine can't just be thrown into the pool whole. You do have to change the filters at least every 2 weeks...and you can clean them half way through that time for better filtering. I know it sounds like I bought a lot of extras, but it was worth it (it all cost about $$$ extra dollars). I used to hate summer because it was too hot to be in the backyard~~ now I welcome horrible hot humid Minnesota summer days! We LOVE our Intex pool!!!
