This is my 4th purchase of this pool in the last 6 years. My first time through Amazon (usually through Academy). It is holding up well and I have 11 grand kids that give it a run for it’s money all summer long. There are pros and cons on different pieces of this pool. The pool (body) itself is sturdy, easy to set up and the inflatable ring works to keep the pool balanced. It must be level to start with. I put a load of sand under mine and then spray weed killer on the sand and a foot around the circumference the day before I set up the pool (nut grass can grow up through the liner.) You must clean under the inflatable rim on a weekly basis, however, to keep algae and debris from gathering under it. Just hand the kids a regular kitchen sponge and have them go around and scrub under the rim a couple of times a week. Prevention is way easier than trying to get rid of yucky stuff later.

You MUST learn how to take care of the water if you want anypool to stay swimable and quite honestly the pumps that come with this one are not so good, especially if you live somewhere hot like I do (Texas.) In my opinion and experience, the pump that comes with this pool does not turn the water over enough even if you run it longer than the suggested run time. I upgraded my pump to a Hayward AG pump 3 years ago and mine stays crystal clear. A good test kit can be your savior and test (available here on Amazon about $17) the water at least every two days. Do not let the pool stores talk you into tons of chemicals either. Get the conditioner on the opening up and then just make sure the chlorine and PH stay in a good level. A good help place is[…] These guys are very helpful and their advice is free.

I own a catfish pool vacuum and it is great for getting junk that settles on the bottom. The pool does not come with a vacuum, skimmer or net. You will need these things if you want the pool to stay clean and last the entire, or more than one season.

The ladders get a little weakened as well if you have heavier people in your family and if your grand kids don’t mind and jump off of it constantly. All in all this pool is worth the money and is good quality. It is worth the $ to me. Don’t think, however that you are just going to set it up and be done with it. It does require work and daily diligence to keep it sparkling. PS Intex’s customer service SUCKS!

The very first thing to note is 2 things. First, the pool is great. You can’t go wrong here. Second, keep in mind, it’s not just the pool you’ll need. The this version of the pool comes with a pump, necessary hoses, and 2 filters. Intex sells additional filters as singles or in a pack of 6. The filters you need are: Intex 29000E/59900E.

We bought the 12 foot version in May of 2016. It’s worked great so far. It took about an hour to setup. I used a tarp underneath which Intex does not recommend, but we did it anyway to protect the bottom. It took about 3-4 hours to fill up the pool. This one comes with the pump and filter setup which is a must to keep the water clean. We also bought some basic pool chemicals, and both available covers by Intex. The cover we use the most is the solar cover. Where we live its around 90-100 degrees F daily. You should also have a strainer for this pool to get the leaves and larger organic matter out of the pool. The included pump/filter setup is really just the get the stuff the strainer can’t get.

As far as having flat ground, Intex makes a big deal about having this pool level. See the picture of our setup. It’s basically like a big bag, so think of what happens when you fill a bag with water on an uneven surface. It’s going to roll to one side a bit. In my case the ground is about 4 inches lower on one side than the other. The pool still works fine in my opinion, just the water is not as deep as it could be, but I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old. The 2 year old can touch the bottom with ease yet the pool is still deep enough to for my 4 year old to swim laps and for my 6.5 foot frame to swim under water.

I’ve never maintained my own pool before so I got some water test strips, PH booster, and Chorine Sanitizer. I have to put about 1/3 cup chlorine in per week. Go easy on the PH booster because using that will increase the Total Alkalinity, I recommend the Clorox pool products. Intex recommends you change the filter every 2 weeks. The first time I changed the filter at two weeks I saw surprised at how much gunk was in it. It seems like you could clean it yourself to extend the life of the filter but will try that next time. For a season Intex sells a six pack of filters so I bought that as well. For the cost the pump is clearly cheap, but seems to be well made considering the limit budget for materials. The pump on the 12 foot pool will filter 500 gallons per hour so you should plan to leave it on for at least 3 hours on most days. Also bought Intex’s foot bath to wash the feet before getting in the pool (shown in picture). That helps to keep the junk out.

Final price including a few pool Toys was about $350, including the $79 for the pool. So expect to pay more than just the cost of the pool, but after searching all over for an above ground temporary pool (one with no frame and expensive pump/filter setups) I can’t be happier so far with this one. Just the thing we needed to keep cool in the summer and provide some fun for the kids.

Aug 2016 update:
Everything is going great. At one point, I had a problem with Green Algae, but apparently so did the pools in Rio for the Olympics. I n my case the problem ended up being too much Stabilizer, which prevented the Chlorine from doing it’s job. I ended up replacing my chemicals and tester strips. Make sure your test kit includes a test for Stabilizer. I purchased the AquaChek 551236 7-Way 100 Count Pool Water Test Strips and I’m very happy with those.

This pool is perfect size for my kids, 3yr old twins, 12yr old son, and my 15 yr old son. It is big enough for the older boys to slash around in and cool down on a hot summer day but small enough for the twins to still be able to touch. It comes just below their shoulders on them however I still have them wear their chest and arm floaties. It’s also big enough to fit all of us with room for the kids to have plenty of room to still splash around!!! I put our river raft in the pool to try to give you a better idea of how much room there is and our fence is a 48in fence. Hope that gives a better idea of the size

how fun! easy set up, so enjoyable on a hot day! No issues- no holes- we are super pleased and highly recommend! (make sure you place it on flat ground for best results) measure for 20 feet NOT 15′! We are 2 inches higher on one side, and it does look pregnant on one side-perfect on the other.. lol… but its fine for now and we will fix that problem next year. Lastly, do NOT throw chlorine tablets in the pool w/o a floater that holds them!

This pool is the perfect pool to beat the Summer heat in Texas. Ours is nicely shaded under a tree this go round. The last one I had years ago was out in the open sun and it would turn into a hot tub some days. There was a teeny tiny pin prick of a hole in ours on the side but nothing a little patch wouldn’t fix. I’ll be honest and say, I don’t have kids, but it’s perfect for even adults who want to get in and just lounge out. I’d say it comfortably fits about 4 floaties. It’d hold quite a few adults who want to just sit, drink and cool off. All in all, you can’t go wrong with this one. I wish they made it as 18ft x 52in but if they do, I couldn’t find it. So this one still gets the job done. Oh! And I’m even able to do some underwater laps for some added cardio and exercise. Then again, I’m only 5’3”.
