    Customer review by BeachGram55

    5.0 stars by BeachGram55

    This was a great buy, easy set up for 2 people in their 50's, no leaks and we love it! For people who work 9-5, here's what we've found to be the best schedule to maintain your pool. At night, put the cover on to keep bugs out. In the AM, right before you go to work, take the cover off. We left ours on all day the first 2 days until we got home from work and it really heated up the pool water (which isn't good over time). After removing the cover, turn on the filter right before you leave for work (to go 6 hours) and make sure you've installed your skimmer. We didn't do it the first few days and it required a lot more cleaning when we got home from work. When you get home from work, get in the pool, do a little skimming with the net and then relax. When you're done, turn on the filter for another hour just to cycle through anything you left in the pool (suntan lotion, sweat, salt, etc.). Then, before you go in for the night, put the cover back on. We do a chemical shock on Monday morning, after a busy weekend, and let it cycle through all day. So, we get full use of our pool, every night after work and throughout the day on the weekends. AGAIN, we love it!

    Easy to set up

    Although it says that at least two persons are required to set this pool up, I was able to set to set the pool by myself without any problem and I'm 70 years old. The secret to one person doing the setup is to deviate from the instructions by placing the legs at the same time as the top rail. The sides will hold itself up as you work your way around the pool.

    This pool has been great for my family and friends. It is big enough that the kids can play on one side while the adults lounge on the other. It has also withstood the kids jumping and splashing. I'm looking forward to another summer with this pool!

    • We had an inter pool for 9 years. This year my wife finally talked me into changing it out. The other, although still useable was getting a little tattered. The first thing we did when we bought the pool was go buy our own pump and sand filter. Index did not sell them at that time. As far as leaving it up during the winter, we never took ours down, or put a top over it. We let the water out under the outlet valve, took all the hoses off, took off the pump and unscrewed the plug from under the sand part of the filter, then just put that stuff in my shed, plain ole she'd not warm by any means. We live in eastern, nc. When time to start it back up, we just took out as many leaves as possible, hooked everything back up, filled pool back up then dumped a gallon or so of bleach in the pool. Vacuumed it out and within a couple days the water was nearly perfect. Do not dump bleach in one spot if you have a colored floor, it's bleach, it will turn it white. Not even the expensive bleach, got ours from the dollar tree. Beats the expensive products they require to get pool ready. And our water was GREEN!!! Couldn't see the floor , but bleach will clean it up better than the expensive products. After it gets clear, of course you need to maintain it with the chemicals. Ours froze over a few times but still had no problems.

    • Just got done winterizing mine! I live in Southern California but it does get pretty cold where I am (easily down into the 20s most nights during the winter) and I know the owners manual says to take it down but after doing some research online, I decided to leave mine up. Just bought the winterizing kit from the pool supply store, and also bought a winter cover for it. I drained the water below the inlet, disconnected the filter, and it's all ready to go. If all goes as planned, it should be perfect when it is uncovered.

    • Some say yes, Intex says NO. See some youtube videos on it and make your best decision. The is the first year with mine and I am NOT taking it down for the winter. It was too hard setting up and getting all the water in it. I am NOT doing that every year. Keeping my fingers crossed!

    • Yes, the pool we just replaced was up for 7-8 yrs year round and winterized each year and we plan to leave the new one up just the same way.

    • it says no but I have to say it seems to be durable enough to be left up here in hickory nc where the temp does get to freezing but not for long periods. so im gonna leave it up after winterizing it. to much work to have to do it again.
