Instructions are relatively complete but some/much common sense needed to assemble/operate/maintain this equipment.
Benches are difficult. It might be helpful to know if they are actually necessary to support the wall structure of the pool side of the unit--I would remove them if not needed for structural integrity.
Inflation of the unit is via the pump unit. All is well until inflated--when ambient temperature fluctuates, pool (and benches) vary greatly in rigidity, necessitating deflation or inflation, as appropriate. This situation is not an issue until the unit is completely assembled, with pump unit attached. After attaching pump unit to pool, the inflation outlet is not accessible to engage in additional inflation of benches or either pool or spa.
Observation of water level after assembly: filled both sides of unit with water to 'maximum'. After 2 days, water level dropped significantly to below minimum--deduced cause is expansion of unit due to weight of water contained. I have refilled to maximum (again) and apparently problem is resolved.
Update, May 2, 2017--I am learning much more and reducing my approval of this product:
The pump circulates water through the filters on the spa side for a period of time, then shuts down while an automatic electric valve switches to the other side (the pool side), then starts up again, circulating (and filtering) water on the pool side for a few hours. After that, the pump shuts off, rests for 2 hours, switches the valve to the spa side again, and restarts the routine again.
My lesson: after 4 complete cycles, as described above, 48 hours have elapsed. My pool water level has decreased by over 10 inches and my spa water level has increased to the point that hot water is flowing over the walls of the spa. I called "technical support", apparently based in China, spoke with several "technicians" that knew little to nothing about the product and mis pronounced English to the point that several repeats were required over and over again. Furthermore, they were not AT ALL familiar with the product, not even knowing that it was a spa AND a pool, and that the walls were inflated compartments...
Long story short--after two hours on the phone, my request for supervisor being refused, having made 3 separate calls and speaking with 3 different "technicians", they finally informed me they would send me a new valve assembly. I presume I must install it myself. They have no mailing address, no email address, and require you complete the claim form on line and upload a copy of your receipt--no other way to complete the claim.
Based upon the HORRIBLE support for Intex, I have reduced my product rating to 3 stars.
More to come after I wrestled with claim form, uploading my receipt (I'm age 70...), we will see what happens...
The setup was very simple and Intex provides multiple sets of instructions as well as a safety DVD. One quick note is that the pool side is not heated, only the spa side is. However both have air jets.
We have created a review video of the product along with some setup tips on our PRA7 Reviews youtube channel.
After the first week it became apparent that we would have to empty the water constantly. We have it on the patio under a sun sail so it is somewhat protected and we cover it when not in use but the filter does NOTHING to clean out any dust or leaves. I have an intex sand filter and salt water system from previous years that I would love to use but there is no way to add anything to this pump as it is attached right to the side of the pool. We purchased the intex usb charged spa vacuum and constantly use the net to try to keep leaves and bugs out but since the filter mechanism is so weak we still have to empty it weekly to keep it clean enough to use. We keep the chlorine float filled and even bought the flower floats to absorb grime. It doesn't get green or anything just nothing ever gets filtered out so its full of dirt/particles. We dare not use the heat since without a sufficient filter I don't want to turn a petrie dish. At this point I wish I would have just bought one of the 100 buck small frame pools that I could put a decent filter on, at least that would be usable!
The pump is also used to inflate the different air chambers of the pool. But once the pool is filled with water and the pump hooked up to handle the water flow, removing the pump in order to adjust air pressure becomes a bit complicated. The valves used are the same typically installed on inflatable boats or dinghys and I would highly recommend buying a secondary foot pump for handling the air pressure.
The strong UV radiation in the Caribbean is a concern and I cover the pool with a cheap tarpaulin. I believe this is a great product for the price. If it lasts a few years, I will be impressed and get a next one.
