I purchased the Intex 15ft X 48in Metal Frame Pool Set to replace my Intex 12ft X 30in Easy Set Pool Set. If you have the space, I would highly recommend just getting away from the easy set pools in general. The inflatable ring always went flat and would change with the temperature not to mention I had to repair the holes in it constantly. Also would easily tip over and dump out at least half the contents if overfilled due to rain water if not completely level.
The pool was fairly easy to setup once I had a nice flat base. I was able to accomplish this nearly by myself with no help. My wife assisted me with putting on the legs but i could have done it without her. I found it easier to only put one plastic pin in per t-fitting all the way around and then go back and put in the second pin after the circle was completed. One thing to note is that the instructions are terrible and that there is NO bottom rope as shown in all the pictures and documentation. That appears to be a feature that has gone away. Also the center belt has a loop for each leg that slides on the center belt instead of the legs going behind the center belt. Don't put the pool up on a windy day unless you are filling it that day because ours tried to run away with the wind. I was able to straighten the pool up and get rid of all the wrinkles but putting a few inches of water in the bottom and getting in and kind of scooting it outwith my feet. I was unsure of how sturdy it would be but after filling it, this is a solid pool. We have not yet used it as the water is still 45 degrees but i know it will far out perform the other Easy Set pools we have had.
The pump that these pools all come with is sized for a smaller pool. Across the board. Just save yourself a headache and go for a sand filter right away. You will not be disappointed. Now I scoured these reviews for information regarding the size i bought since i had bought one way too big. I have a 15 foot pool and I bought the Intex Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pump for Above Ground Pools, 3000 GPH Pump Flow Rate, 110-120V with GFCI to go with it. After the fact, i noticed it was oversized for this pool so I recommend not get this big one and going for the Intex Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pump for Above Ground Pools, 2100 GPH Pump Flow Rate, 110-120V with GFCI instead. The pump i got works fine but you can tell that it is oversized for the job. I also purchased the Intex 120V Krystal Clear Saltwater System CG-28669 with E.C.O. (Electrocatalytic Oxidation) for Above Ground Pools to pair with the pump and for my pool size, I only need to run the saltwater for 3 hours and the pump for 4 hours once a day. Both are on on timers so I don't have to think about it. The sand filter required 100 lbs of sand to hit the minimum mark, 110-120 lbs would probably be the full mark. I put 80 lbs of salt in the water to start since the water was already treated when it arrived and have two more 40 lbs bags of salt on hand should i need it when the pump indicates it needs it. You will also need a couple adapters to make the 1.5 inch hoses work with the 1.25 inch fittings. I bought the Hose Conversion Adapters kit for Intex 1500gph and 2500gph pumps to adapt everything together.

The Base - The most IMPORTANT part:
NOTE: This was all done by hand by one person over a weekend. I reworked the base my pool sat on this time to ensure a very flat and level surface. Previously i had tried to level it as best i could and I prepared a surface a foot bigger that the pool itself as was recommended which gives you a 6 inch buffer all the way around. The pool was placed in pretty much the same place as the previous pool but i took steps to ensure a solid base this year. To layout the size, i pounded a round metal spike about where i figured the center. I took a string and measured it for 8 feet and took 12 stakes and put them out like numbers on a clock in a circle all around at the end of the string. I checked the clearance around the circle and made the adjustments to the center point and reset the stakes. Next I removed all the vegetative material since the pool was larger than my previous pool. I took a flat shovel and did my best to visually flatten the whole area, checking occasionally with a 4 foot level to see how off i was. I tied string at 2 inches above the highest point and used a line level to level the string from stake to stake to make a circle, wrapping several times around each stake and pulling it very tight to make sure it was perfectly level. I then took the remaining 250 feet and went back in forth from stake to stake across to have multiple points for leveling purposes. I then brought in 2 tons (yes I said tons) of crushed stone dust to use as my base. My neighbor is a landscaper and had it delivered for $18/ton plus a $50 delivery charge. A total of $84. I had it dumped in my driveway and moved it to the pool area a wheel barrow load at a time. In hindsight, I should have had it dumped direct into the area or at least nearby as I was very very sore at the end of the day. I borrowed a plate compactor from my neighbor but could have rented from a local source for about $75 for the weekend. I tamped the area (right over top of the string) after several loads and used the string as a reference to what needed to be leveled still. I brought in additional loads until the string was level everywhere with the string. I lightly watered the area as I went and it was as hard as asphalt and didn't give. With this method, the pool was less than a half inch off all the way around and I can further level if i want by placing shims under the individual legs but I doubt that will be necessary. The water delivery driver praised me for my leveling efforts.
Assemble is sooo easy. Took me a half hour. As with any pool it should be on level ground. I didn't have a perfectly level spot in my yard so I set it up as level as possible and it's fine.(water is a little higher on one side, no biggy) I wasn't about to level the yard for a pool that I didn't know anything about. Next year I will!
Because of its size you can take it down and store it for the winter and not have to worry about winterizing
Perfect size for kids! They can send up and swim!
The frame is strong! We didn't get a ladder. The kids hop over the side. They can hand and sit on it. It's very strong!
Because of its size, it warms up pretty quick, about a day after filling to get to a good temp.
The liner is thick. Not sure what the mil size is but it feels heavy.
The filter! I've seen bigger filters on fish tanks! It uses a cartridge that has to be cleaned often and it doesn't flow much.
No skimmer. The filter will clean the water(eventually) but will not remove debris from the top of the water.
Water quality can go downhill quick! This could be partially my fault for not monitoring the water as often as I should but after it rains, if it's in direct sunlight often or if you have a lot of people in it, the chlorine levels can drop and it can go green real fast.
Along with the pool you will need a skimming net, a vaccuum that works with a garden hose, water test kit, the solar cover, a chlorine floating dispenser, quick dissolving chlorine tabs, and I would highly recommend getting the sand master 71225 filter and the index skimmer. The filter is so powerful it creates a small whirlpool which causes any debris on the floor to collect in the middle of the poll which makes it easy to vacuum up. Plus it's rated for 9000 gallons and is super easy to clean. Just flip the valve to backwash and your done! You'll end up spending about another $200 with these upgrades but totally worth it! Keep the filter running,add a tab or two a day and you'll have crystal clear water all summer!

About leveling - we didn't level, we found a fairly flat looking spot and just built it. One side is a 3 inches higher than the other, and it's ok! So don't freak out about leveling unless you live on a major slope.
About the saltwater filter/combo - it's worth it. We run it two hours every night and the pool levels stay perfect, with 0 maintenance, no need to purchase or replace chlorine tabs. It's the equivalent to having an electric car, just plug it in, no more gas.
About the size- a few people said 4 adults comfortably, this thing can fit 8 adults, easily, and even more if you're all friends. Also my 34 inch tall little girl can stand in it, since it's not actually filled to the brim, which is awesome!
We live in ny, so also purchased the solar cover to warm things up, so far no complaints.
All in all, were super happy about this purchase and highly recommend this product. Dropped about $400-$500 all in (including some unicorn floats).
