We purchased this product 3 summers ago and we are getting ready to set it up for the 4th season!!!! The best purchase ever! At times I've seen 14 kids (4-11) in there doing the "whirlpool" and exhausting themselves. Changed the filter once a week and floated the "chlorine duck" around/shock it every Sat night. Each year there is usually 2-3 tiny holes that we patch but make sure to add a pad of some sort under to prevent more damage. Used the solar cover here in WA to get 85 in afternoon of Jul-Aug. Not hard to maintain at all (Mom of 2). Husband would help net what circled into the middle after dinnertime - 15 min to put to bed! Because it is only 30 inches - smaller kids gained the confidence to swim/learning from the older ones without paying for lessons. Would do it all over again!!!
Purchased this pool for my four children and for the first two months thought it was the greatest thing I ever purchased. Put then the pool turned turned and murky and I tried putting chlorine and shocking the water and nothing worked. I ended up draining the pool. I went through two filter in two weeks, and had a disgusting mess to clean up. I an extremely disappointed in Intex and I think that their filter is not able to handle the size of the pool, and I am exremely disappointed in this purchase. I am going to try and find another pool maker that has been rating and hopefully get better results. I guess you get what you pay for.
Took less than an hour to set up and the kids helped too. Best purchase for the price. Let the fun begin!
Very happy with this 30" x 12' Intex metal frame pool. Used for our younger grandchildren ages 2-7. Had a larger & deeper Intex metal frame pool for the older grandchildren & our adult children. Happy with the filter it came with.
This is a great pool for the money. I put this pool up in May and take it down in October due to our harsh winters. This pool has stayed strong for the past three years and still going! Great pool and quality.
The pool was super easy to set up! We are really enjoying it.
