    Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 564reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Best Money I Spent This was the best money i have spent on an item in a long time. The pool arrived earlier than expected which was great. After unpacking and checking the parts I found everything there, even a DVD on how to set the pool up. Setup was a breeze for two people, the design was simple but well built and I had the hose in the pool in 1 1/2 hrs. Next day I was swimming. I tell everyone how great I think the Intex Pool is. I highly recomend this pool to anyone looking for an above ground pool. Intex got it right. 06/12/2013
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by We bought this pool and just set it up a couple of days ago everything went well we made sure we checked the liner out really well for holes since i have read the reviews and thats what people have had problems with. We had to have our water delivered since we live in the county and are on well water didnt wanna burn our pump up, anyway the water truck came and filled our pool and everything seemed great, but a couple of hours later we noticed a slight leak we think its coming from the seem, but its very little. There is no way we are gonna drain the pool and patch it we had to pay almost $300.00 dollars for the water to fill the pool. I just pray it doesnt get any worse. Other than that we love the pool its nice and big. I think Intex should inspect their liners a little better before they box them up!! 05/21/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Easy to construct pool We had a couple of other Intex pools over the past several years. This pool seems to b a little better quality and the poles to connect are easier. You do have to make sure your ground is level and no stones, twigs or dirt clods are in the pad area so the pool floor won't be lumpy - a hard feat in north Texas with the mud clumpy hard dirt. If we take care of this pool, it should last 2-3 years, maybe more. Getting 5 months' use a year will only cost about $40 a month - cheap and fun entertainment. BTW, we clean our filters and re-use them 2-3 more times to save on that cost too. 04/16/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by This is our third Intex above ground pool. We started with the one that has the blow up ring, upgraded it to a metal framed 15x48 and after 4 summers & now older kids we upgraded to this Ultra Frame 18x48. This is the easiest of the three pools to put together even though it is the largest. My husband is extremely pleased with the sturdy frame and wonderful construction. It took him and my brother to put it up and together but is was very quick (less than 2 hours total). The only tip I have is to use spray on baby oil to help insert the legs into the white loops. This aided in the easy installation. We really liked the much better locking system in the railing because it isn't like the white clips from the 15x48 metal Intex pool we had. I have to say both pools we owned are in good shape and have been patched from wear and tear. My brother's kids are enjoying the 15x48 hand me down this summer. I only hope we will get even more use out of this new pool. 06/17/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Exellent product Very easy set up. A lot bigger than I anticipated. Added a salt water system for easy maintenance. Everything is working in an outstanding manner. 04/24/2012
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by Caution!!! The costumer service from manufacture is horrible!! Thank God Walmart has been so great! We have had to return this pool twice! First time because of leak around seam, second time was because it had a pin size hole and the rope was to short. I would recommend getting a different type of pool just because of the service (lack of) from this company!! 04/30/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Best money I've ever spent on backyard fun! This pool is just great! The assembly was very easy and getting the wrinkles out of the bottom was likewise very easy. There are many YouTube videos on this pool that will show how they assemble, etc. The pool took one night to fill up and using a two foot piece of 2x4 and hammer against the legs got them all leveled quickly using a bubble level. The ladder could be much better as it does not have a top platform, I built one for it out 3/4" plywood and screw it right onto the top rungs,the size is 12 inches by 19 inches in case anyone wants to do the same thing.The pool is quite large and adults can be on one end and not be bothered by the kids playing on the other end, 18 feet is much larger than I anticipated once you're in the pool!The vinyl material is extremely thick and I think will last many, many years. Contrary to the experience of others we had no leaks, it just worked very well. The pump and filter are very easy to connect and I love the fact that the pump has a selector timer that I can set how many hours I want the pump to run 2,4,6,8 or 12 hours. The paper filter is very easy to change and clean with just a water hose so I imagine it will be a couple of months if not more before I have to replace the filter which are only $5 each at Walmart.The vacuum that came with the pool is marginal at best, I bought a different vacuum which attaches to the skimmer hose and it works much faster and better.I just couldn't be happier with this purchase, Intex really knows how to put a great package together and you just won't go wrong buying this pool. Good luck and enjoy your summer! 06/10/2012
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by Pool has leaks I purchased this pool from our local Walmart store. Was fairly easily installed. Got about 6 inches of water in it and noticed a puddle on the ground tarp. We were able to drain, dry and patch the little pin hole. Filled the pool up about 1/2 way when we noticed the sand on the other side of the pool was getting wet. Went inside the pool and found the seam torn open. Local Walmart was great about taking it back however we lost 3,000 gallons of water, 1/2 day of putting it up and filling and then they didn't have any more pools in stock or anywhere in our area. 05/14/2012
