    Very easy to assemble, myself and a friend put it up within 30 mins. Great to have for kids just to play or adults lounging around. Only complaint is the filter does not pick anything up from bottom of pool.

    For a quick pop up pool you cant beat it. The kids love it, yes the filter isn't amazing but are any of the pop up pools filters any good? nah. Its large, good for family and friends to swim in. I will add, its a pop up pool not an above ground pool you pay lots of money for so you need to be careful in this aspect not to rough house but its great, should last a couple summers and I'll get my moneys worth out of it. We love this pool and highly recommend it no need to pay 500$ for other brands this will be just perfect.

    NOT"Metal-Walled" it's METAL FRAME Blue Liner Wall

    Customer review by 1954Grandma

    5.0 stars by 1954Grandma

    Know Title/Description is INCORRECT, it's not a "Metal-Walled Swimming Pool". Correct Description is: METAL FRAME Swimming Pool. Only thing that's metal are the metal pipes that liner hangs from and upright poles which hold metal rim pipes, actual Wall of pool is the Blue Vinyl Liner that's hung from the White Metal Pipes, see image. Blue Wall pictured in image is the vinyl liner, that's not metal, there is no separate wall, wall is a Two-Fer, it's the Liner that's also the Outer Wall. Blue vinyl liner/wall has welded pockets that the White metal pipes slip through. The White Metal Pipes hold up the Blue Vinyl. Pool does not have any bottom Metal Frame, only Top pipe frame and the Upright pipes that hold it in place. Bottom of Upright Metal Pipes have a Plastic Base a couple inches larger than the pipe, which prevents pipe from piercing the Ground Cover and from sinking into the dirt. With the exception of Misleading Title, not as described, not a durable Metal-Walled swimming pool as implied/expected, I'm Good, won't return, because of the price and fact I did not pick up, the surprised recipient did. All I told recipient was that I needed them to pick up a heavy package from Wal-Mart. I gave them only the order number, asked that they take their pick-up to get my package and would they call me when they had it loaded on their truck. They phoned quite puzzled, said the store just loaded a Pool, was that what they were suppose to pick up:-) At that point I told them it was theirs' take it home and assemble, which they did same evening, it was filled by morning. I did not see actual pool for a couple days later. At this point, thier greatfulness and Price super-ceeded my disappointment that it wasn't a Metal Walled Pool as described. Recipients are extremely pleased thus far!!! Pick up from store was a breeze, CS took the order number and told them to meet them at the front of the store, they would load order for them. Within 5 minutes they were loaded, can't beat that service!!! All componets needed to swim and maintain pool are included. Large 18' pool big enough for entire family and several friends. Very Good Value, even if only good for one Summer Season. Had it been a Metal-Walled pool, As Advertised, it would of been an EXCELLENT find. So with all that said, yes disappointed it was not as described, know that only Vinyl Liner Wall is not as durable as a Metal Walled Pool that has a Vinyl Liner, but it's still a great value, small price to pay for everything needed to have some family fun on warm Summer days. If it last only one Summer, it's still excellent bargain when you figure the Pool is rated to hold Ten People. A family of Four can't go to an amusement park and out to eat for a day for the cost of this pool package. Time will tell how durable it is, but as mentioned, even if only a couple months of Summer Family Fun, it's well worth the money, Ladder, Filter, Skimmer, Cover, Ground Cloth, everything they needed to be up and running with exception of water was included, excellent price for a 18' pool. Know, Excellent On line Pricing and In Store Wal-Mart Service for this On Line Purchase. I highly recommend Buying on line and pick up in store "yourself" or give a heads-up to person picking up your order for you that they have you inspect purchase before they assemble to make sure it is as advertised.

    i have a 6yr old kid, need to make sure this is child appropriate (depth wise)

    • I have an 8 year old and when the pool is filled to capacity, it is right under his shoulders. I am 5'7" and when the pool is full, it goes to right above my hip bone. Sorry I don't have an exact measurement. LOL

    • 42" is Three #3# feet Six #6# inches. That's Six #6# inches longer than a Standard Yard Stick and/or as long as 3 & 1/2 Standard 12 inch notebook rulers. Assuming you don't have a tape measure, yard stick or ruler then you can estimate depth by having your Child stand next to your kitchen counter, stove, dishwasher, washing machine, they are all basically industry standard height of 36 inches which equals One #1# yard. Pool is Six inches higher than your kitchen counter tops. To visualize total of 42 inches for height, place a Can a Soup on top of counter top then have your child stand next to same, if top of the soup can isn't under their Chin or lower, I personally would say 42 inches deep is not appropriate for a Child so short and would only allow them in pool with a life jacket. Pool is appropriate Depth for Adults and/or Children, deep enough an adult to swim without the stoke of their arms touching bottom, yet shallow enough for 8 yrs and up to stand up without water going in their mouth either on their tip-toes if short or flat footed if average height. Average height 11 yr old depth falls below arm-pit, about same area as the bottom of Bra would ride. I assume you didn't have a tape measure and replied accordingly, giving examples of height/Depth.
