I never particularly liked the blue color of the old pool and this new one looks much cleaner, a more sophisticated look if you will. Beyond that, it’s not a whole lot different; the frame is basically the same but seems a bit sturdier on the new prism, the pump is just like my old one and even uses the same Type A cartridges so I can keep the extras I had from that pool (neato!). I did notice that the filter has some new feature going on with it, called “hydro aeration” that the box talks about. I’m not sure what exactly “negative ions” are, but I can see the pump working, there are bubbles coming out of the inlet, and the pool seems fresher so I’ll call that a win. I’m actually thinking about upgrading to one of the Sand Filters that Intex makes because my neighbor mentioned that his has a timer you can set so that it runs automatically, plus you don’t have to change the filter cartridges. I assume a sand filter will work with this pool since it has the same fittings as were on the other Intex pools I’ve owned in the past. Maybe I will once I use up all my leftover filter cartridges.
Set up was pretty easy, but like I said, I’m replacing another Intex pool so I’ve done this a few times before. Just make sure the ground is flat and level, lay it out, add the frame, spread so there aren’t any creases and start filling. Takes a little while to fill, I usually get two garden hoses running, tie them off to the side of the pool and let them go for a good chunk of the day, checking on them periodically while I get chores done.
One thing that is kind of a hassle is that Intex doesn’t include chemicals with their pools, but I understand this to some extent, even the pool store makes me bring in a water sample sometimes. I guess it depends on your water but I feel like there should still be a “starter pack” or something that would work for anyone.
Our old Intex pools have each lasted multiple years of being set up for the summer and taken down once it’s over, I expect this one to do just as well, if not better, but I will update the review if there are any issues.
Overall, this thing is great for a temporary pool. I’ve never wanted to put in an in-ground pool but it’s still so nice having your own little pool in the backyard for those hot summer days. Definitely a must-have item for the coming months.
It stays clean and sanatized just like our full sized pool. However, the plastic hose clamps and lack of water cut offs, are a big negative! Changing the filter is difficult without losing quite a bit of water.
Even so, it works well to teach the kids to go under and float before allowing them in the full sized pool. It also comes in handy for them to splash and play around in when we are unable to swim with them in the full-sized pool. We can wash the car, water the plants, grill, etc., and still be able to safely supervise the kids.
We bought a solar cover and a winter cover, too. Thus, it stays really warm, making it readily available in just a few hours to anyone who wants to cool off or tan. (It's even large enough for a couple of adults to lie on floats in it, too!)
Even with a couple of minor issues, It is well worth the money, so we give it 5 stars!
We looked into getting a gym membership for the summer, but it was going to be $300 dollars. I have to admit, getting my kids dressed, ready, out of the house, using a potty, and snacks packed for any kind of outing is a huge feat in itself. So while I was already balking at the thought of $300 for a membership, I knew we really wouldn't use it often because it just wasn't going to be easy. I started looking for an inexpensive pool we could set up at home, but I didn't want it to be too deep. Ideally, I wanted it to be shallow enough that even my 2-year-old could stand up in any area of it. In my search I came across this Intex pool. We had a Intex pool briefly the year before, the kind with the inflatable ring around the top. My sister had bought it used, it and gave it to us when she didn't want it anymore. We set it up and within hours the ring failed, causing the pool to fail. We found the hole, patched it, filled it up again, to once again have it fail and almost flood our house within hours. We threw it away. So I knew I did not want to deal with one with an inflatable ring top. This fit our needs exactly. And being only 30 inches high (water height maximum 24 inches) was perfect!
I started out with it only being filled halfway. I worked on safety with my kids, enforcing pool rules, always have an adult, no trying to climb in on your own, and how to stand up if they lost their balance and went under the water. They begged me to fill it up the rest of the way. Within a week we did. At the maximum, 24 inches deep of water, they were able to stand with their head easily above water, but then using a kick board or woggle they could also get horizontal and practice swimming and kicking. I bought dive toys and let them practice reaching down and picking them up (they would have to submerge their ears in the water to get them). Because it was in our back yard, we were able to get in the pool daily. We have had it up for 2 months and today I am finally draining it because our temperatures have cooled down too much that its not at a good temperature anymore.
When I ordered the pool I also ordered a pack of filters, the intex solar cover, a mini chlorine floater, and a net. We never used a traditional cover, and only used the solar cover when it needed to warm up a little. The kids did spill the chlorine tabs out of the floater and my husband choose not to pick them up. I didn't know until the next day when I looked in and saw the blue design on the bottom was ruined in large portions from the chlorine tabs sitting on it, and moving around with the water current. I'm not sure if it's going to hold up through storage for another year, it definitely feels like the lining was damaged by the tabs, not just discoloration but it feels cracked. Even with that happening, I would 100% buy another next year if the damage doesn't hold up for another year. And now my husband has hopefully learned his lesson to not leave chlorine tabs on the bottom of the pool for 24 hours.
Maintenance was easy, only having to keep chlorine tabs in the mini floater and the water stayed clear. One time the pool lining started to feel a little slimy and I realized the mini chlorine floater ran out of chlorine. Filled it up and it was fine the next day. I ran the filter in the evening after we were done with the pool for a few hours, but I didn't like running it while my kids were in the pool for concern they would get their hair stuck. (My son may have got his tendency for anxiety from me.)
My 2 year old has been in swim lessons for a month now, and my 4 year old starts next week and is so excited. This was absolutely worth the money just for that alone. We will definitely stick with Intex and especially this style of pool until we can finally afford to put in an in ground. But I didn't even want an in ground pool until the kids knew how to swim, so this was perfect.
