The pool isn't as deep as stated. It works really great for my five and four year old, but we were disappointed it wasn't as big as they say. It comes up to their waist. It was easy to set up, but you have to make sure the ground is completely level unlike the metal framed pools. Overall it is a great pool for the cost.
I purchased this item for some backyard summer fun with my kids, however, within 24 hours of set up, water was pouring over the sides and I went sliding over the ring. We emptied the pool, checked the level, everything is good. We set up the pool a second time, and it collapses a second time. We moved the pool to a different location, smoothed out the floor (no wrinkles), and tried a third time. It actually lasted 24 hours before collapsing...third times a charm, right? We give it one more valiant effort-break out the levels (on point), smooth out the floor (done!), add water....but this time we prop the sides of the pool up to see if it makes a difference...NOPE! This pool is complete ****! Operator error my arse, this product is junk and is not good for anything except hustling money from hardworking families who are trying to have some inexpensive fun with their kids. DO NOT BUY!
We just love this pool. We didn’t level the ground but I didn’t stretch the bottom. Everything works as it should. We had a hard rain and the trees shed a lot of leaves and dirt but the awesome little filter cleared the whole thing up and we have crystal clear water. Next year when I set it up I definitely will level the ground just for asthetics and I think I’ll put padding underneath. So pleased with it so far!
The sides of the pool fell over aboiut 3/3 full and all the water drained out! Twice!
