1) The sides of the pool rise up as you fill the pool, therefore if you start the pool on an area with a slant you will have problems when the pool fills to the top--one side will have extra material because of the water level. The flatter the surface the better. You can make this work on ground that is somewhat uneven, but it take a lot of work.
2) You MUST make sure that bottom of the pool is pulled out to make a true circle. It is easy to be lazy with this because when there is no water in the pool it can look "good enough," but if you have an oval there is a chance that the water will push out and start to flow out once it is filled.
3) If you plan to put this away year after year get a ground cloth. If the pool is on grass the bottom is IMPOSSIBLE to clean. At the price, I would recommend throwing it out at the end of the season.
4) The pump is very basic. You will need to add chemicals to keep it clean. Get a net to clean the big stuff out.
For the $60-100 price tag you can't really go wrong if what you are looking for is some simple fun and a chance to cool off.
Yes the ground must be level. My installation is on a patio that slopes toward the yard for drainage, with a difference in height of about 2 inches from one side to the other. It still works for me, with the water level being slightly up on the inflatable ring on the low side, and at the bottom of the ring on the high side.
Unless you want to regularly refill the 1,500 gallons in this pool (which takes about 3 hours with a garden hose at reasonable pressure) you will need chemicals. I have never dealt with treating a pool before, but so far it has been easy. If you take a sample to your local pool store within an hour after collecting it, they can analyze and tell you what you need. Two things they may recommend that you don't necessarily need: water hardener (why is soft water bad? open to comments...) and cyanuric acid (slows down the loss of chlorine due to UV/sun, if you cover your pool this loss is already greatly minimized). The only two chemical items I have found that are needed are chlorine and PH adjusters.
Some have recommended salt water kits to get away from the chemical cost and maintenance burden. I believe the salt water kits can be purchased on Amazon for about $150, so you can weigh if this is a suitable option for you.
The filter in the filter pump does get dirty and probably should be changed every couple of weeks. The filter can be taken out and rinsed to prolong life.Read more ›
My husband and I toyed around with the idea of having an in-ground pool installed, but since we are newlyweds and still working on finances, we decided to get a cheapie above-ground pool to tide us over (no pun intended!) It was a pain to set up at first, when we tried to install it on what seemed to be the level part of our yard. Trust me, no matter how level an area seems to be, it isn't. We took it down and moved it to our concrete patio. The instructions say not to install on concrete, but the Intex website said it was fine as long as a ground cover was used. We set up the pool again to find that our seemingly level patio was far from being level at all. Since it was such a cheap pool, we decided to level it by stuffing some old cushions underneath the lower sides after it was emptied, then we filled it back up. It took a few people and a little effort but now the pool is at near-capacity and swims great!
This pool DEFINITELY needs chemicals. The filter is basically useless, except to circulate water around. About 2 weeks after we set the pool up, my husband and I both got TERRIBLE ear infections from the water. Seriously, I had never been in so much pain. My ears bled from the inside and I had an eardrum rupture. I refused to get in the water for 3 weeks after that. Finally we got test strips that tested the Ph, chlorine, alkalinity, etc and got the appropriate chemicals to keep the water clean and healthy.
My husband and I love it. It's perfect for relaxing in the evenings or for getting a tan. We can both fit full-sized floats inside and relax together. It's also fun to walk around the inside perimeter in a circular path (say, counter-clockwise) and create a sort of whirlpool-like current.Read more ›
