I was trying to build a swimming pool for my dogs (two full grown German Shepherds) but couldn't find a tarp that would hold water - even the waterproof ones leaked when filled with water (i think they were more 'water resistant for storage etc rather than truly water proof). I saw this product at US Deal Mall online for only $60 (which was less than the PVC pipes and other materials I purchased to build the pool myself cost) and thought "what the heck - I'll only be out 60 bucks if it tears, leaks or falls apart". Boy was I surprised!!! This pool is AMAZING! I set it up by myself in about 45 minutes without any issues. I connected the filter and filled the pool with absolutely NO LEAKS or stability issues. (I set it on ground that was level to within about an inch on either side judging by the water levels on the print of the liner). The liner is incredibly DURABLE! I have a "real" 18 foot round above ground pool (bought from Namco and professionally installed) that I didn't want my dogs in because I was afraid they would rip the liner with their nails. I honestly believe the liner in this Intek pool is better made than the liner in my "real" pool!!! My dogs have been jumping in and out, standing with their front paws on (and jumping over) the sides and scratching at the liner while trying to catch balls and this pool has stood up to it ALL without any issues! In fact I have a small redwood bench inside the pool that is weighted down with flagstone that they use to get in and out of the pool... They jump up on it to get clearance to jump over the support rails - multiple times during each swim/play session - and the liner is holding up great to this wear and tear which I'm sure it was NOT designed for! Honestly - I wish I had bought this sooner instead of trying to build one myself, but I thought it would be so cheaply made it wouldn't last a day. Boy was I wrong! My dogs have been in this pool everyday for a week and it is holding up beautifully! I have absolutely ZERO concerns about them ripping the liner. In fact - next year I plan on upgrading them to a bigger and deeper one! The only issue I am having is with the filtration - but really it's not even that big of an issue. The water, after a week of the dogs playing in it, isn't as clear as I would like - its not bad but I've added some algaecide and am using the baquacil that I use in my real pool... but the dog pool still is cloudy. Granted - I'm sure it wasn't meant to filter the amount of dirt and dog hair that I am asking it to do - and I think the redwood bench may be causing some issues (I leave it in the pool 24/7 because it's to heavy to lift in and out with the flagstones) so I really can't complain but I also can't speak to how well (or not well) the filter will work if the pool is being used for human and not canine recreation. Overall - I honestly can not emphasize how surprised I was at the ease of set-up and quality of this product! This liner is DURABLE!!!! And that was my main concern! I have no leaks in the liner or at any of the filter connections. HONESTLY - I thought this product was going to be a cheap piece of junk that I would throw out within a day or so and write off as a lesson learned - I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG!!!! This is a QUALITY product that saved me HUNDREDS of DOLLARS and HOURS of time trying to reinvent the wheel! I am a very happy - very surprised - fan of Intek pools!!!! Well Done!!!

A much better product than I expected
Great starter pool
My 8 year old daughter loves it. Perfect for this hot Texas weather. And just the right size for my tiny yard. Hardest part was clearing ground and adding sand. But pool set up easy enough by myself. I think we can use it through Sept. here in Texas.
I am 61 years old and wanted to enjoy a pool in my own backyard. I set this pool up in under one hour, all by myself, very easy to set up, the only thing I did not know was that the smaller Metal bars were inside the bigger metal bars. So I thought I was missing 10 pieces. It was an embarrassing moment, but thought I would share just in case somebody thinks they're missing pieces as well. no issues at all, I have enjoyed this pool immensely over the past couple weeks. It's Money well spent !
We purchased the pool for our small children, 4 & 2 years of age. It is perfect for them, and we parents have a good time too! We bought a nice ladder for it, and figuring out the chemicals has been simple. The filter works great! It took us approximately 30 minutes to put it together with 2 people. Just all around great purchase! We are in the pool daily.
Perfect for my 5 and 8 years old kids znx gof me too.
Exactly as expected
I needed a particular size pool to fit in my Lanai. Had trouble finding one but finally used site to store and couldn't be happier. As the picture shows, it fits perfectly and remains much cleaner by being inside the screening. Easy to set up and the pump/filter runs extremely quiet.
This is a great upgrade over the inflatable ring styles that seem to have problems holding air (my experience anyway). Last year this size wasn`t available at my local store, and I purchased the 12ft model. I found that one to be a little bit too large for 1 person. I also ended up with a 4" differential in the water level, no matter how hard I tried to level it. This one is much easier to set up, and the water level is only 1" off now. No ladder is necessary for my 5' 11" frame, though children surly would need to use one. A ladder is NOT included with this model, so consider the extra cost. The pump takes the smaller sized "D" filters, and is very quiet. I would recommend purchasing a cover to keep out dirt and debris. One downside I noticed was the quality difference for the pool bottom. The 12ft model has a very heavy duty white liner bottom, while this model had a very thin blue plastic bottom. Seems it could be penetrated very easily. For the price, a very good deal!
Fit perfect for small yard !
My yard is 12" and this pool is perfect size for small place , I have a little boy 6 and 12 years old and the kid have a very fun time easy assembly I'm very happy =)
I upgraded this year from the 10'X30" easy set I had last year. Definitely worth the extra few bucks. Feels very solid, only had it up for a week, but I believe it will hold up quite well. One advice I have to give, the clips that hold the horizontal beams together, tend to pop out quite easily (at least while assembling), so I used tie wraps to hold them in place. If you don't want the expense of a full sized pool, and want something better than any inflatable type product, this is a great choice for creating a cool fun place to hang out during the hot summer, kids will love it, and several adults can fit comfortably inside and chill out. Would definitely recommend or purchase again!
Great price and excellent quality!
Saved our summer last year! Set up wasn't difficult but would have been easier with 2 people. The break down was definitely a challenge but living in New England I didn't have much of a choice but to break it down and store it for the winter. I hope we're able to put it back up this summer with just as much ease!
