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!
We buy this pool every year...only because we forget to put it away for the winter and then it gets cracked. But we love this pool. We have 2 young boys and it's perfect for them and us to fit in. We put our pool up on the deck and we've had some great times in it. You definitely need an electric air pump for this pool. Highly recommend this pool!
I love this pool! We couldn't find it in store so we got it online. It was shipped promptly & we got it in time for my daughter's party. Strong & big enough for my family of three plus the toy ducks my daughter & I swim with.
