We purchased this pool over the weekend and set it up yesterday. We went back and forth deciding on if we should put sand down. We decided since our ground is pretty level to put sand down on one side as the ground needed it a little. Then we added a tarp and secured the tarp with stakes. Overall the pool took 3 hours. That included time at home depot getting sand/tarp and actual build of the pool. It's very easy if you read the directions. Don't be overwhelmed by all the instructions. Take one step at a time. I could build it with my eye's closed now. Make sure to lay the pool out in the sun like it says. Was easier to work with and stretch. You will need two people cuts the time in half. I would definitely buy this pool again for someone. We'll see how long it lasts, but considering that we built it correctly I hope for at least a few seasons. Fun family project and my daughter loves it. Big enough for a few adults as well.

I've had numerous of these kinds of pools in the passed 10 years.. Never had a summer escapes, always INTEX.. I just set the pool up last night, fairly easy, took about 20 min from start to finish. Then I got to the filter. The instructions make it look SO much more complicated than what it actually is.. I followed the pictures more than reading it... Filter comes mostly together just needs to be screwed to the pool and some minor installments. The pool is bigger than the 12x30 blow up ring pool, the filter is different than use to and has a smaller cartridge, so I'll see how good that works in about a week or two. My kids are 6 and 4 and this pool is perfect for them and all their friends!!

All of the water leaked out of the pool right after setting it up. The leak must have been very small because we couldn't locate it or there were lots of little holes. Yet, the pool did not hold water. I followed the directions that came with the product: "Should you encounter any problems with this product, DO NOT RETURN TO THE STORE". I called Polygroup's (the manufacturer) customer service and waited 40 minutes on hold. They told me I needed to take pictures of the hole (those I couldn't even find) and send those in with my receipt. They also told me that pinholes are not under warranty and asked if I tried patching it up yet. Keep in mind people, this is a brand new product right out of the box. No warranty on pinholes? For pete's sake.... it's a pool. At the very least, pools need to be able to hold water. Right? So, if you run into this type of problem, save yourself time. Pack up that pool and take it back to Walmart. You will not get decent service from this manufacturer.

I bought this during the last heat wave here in Washington State for my 6 yr old grandson to stay cool. I put up the pool mostly by myself. It was really hot so my son helped push the pins in when my own strength could not do it. (I am 60 yr old female) It was frustrating when I found out when it was almost done that I did not but the poles into the holders on the side but it was a very easy fix. I think it took longer to fill the pool than to put it together. I do not know what one of the parts to the filter is. I assume it has something to do with a vacuum attachment. The instructions should have a better explanation. The filter works very well. Now with the heat, the water is warm to! Overall, I also enjoyed cooling off in the pool. The height was just right for my grandson to be safe and for me to keep cool to. I would recommend it. I can't wait for the 90 degree heat to return so I can enjoy it again (over the weekend only please). My grandson stayed in for 2 days! He loved it!

We HAD an Intex Inflatable Ring 12' pool and were constantly draining it, patching it up and refilling it. This year, we decided to go with a metal frame pool and were pleasantly surprised with the Summer Escapes Round 12' x 2'6" Metal Frame Swimming Pool. It is MUCH BIGGER than you would think. Our last pool was 12', but looks like a kiddie pool compared to this one! It is solid, sturdy and comes with a better filter system PLUS you put the Chlorine Tablets inside the system instead of having to use one of the floating dispensers. My family loves this pool and our 9 year old son helped put it together, which only took about 30-45 minutes. Yes, it took a couple of hours to fill it, but it was well worth it and we are very satisfied. One tip: you will need level ground. I know it says it on the package, but they are not kidding. We laid down 1 ton of sand AND a Heavy Duty Silver Tarp. Watch out for rocks and pebbles, because you will feel them through the bottom! Sweep and sweep, and then sweep again before you set up!

Skeptical to buy because of the reviews but I decided to take a chance because the INTEX pool was not offered for pick up in store and it wouldn't be available to ship to store for about a week. After bringing it home and inspecting the liner it only took my wife and I about an hour to have the pool set up and water filling it, another 30 minutes or so to get the pump on. The Good: It's inexpensive, has a decent liner that will withstand a summer or two and comes with a pump, filter, and a leaf basket all in one package. The size is great for adults to sit comfortably and my 36" 3yr old can stand and play without me holding on to her the whole time. Just perfect for younger children. The metal frame seems sturdy and will probably outlast the liner. The Bad: The plastic spring loaded pins that hold the legs onto the outside ring were broken, every last one of them. Fortunately, they don't really offer any aid to the stability or integrity of the pool. I will just buy fasteners to replace them, although this is not something you want to see as you're pulling parts from the box and not knowing what these broken pieces go to yet. I figure I will beef up the pool with some real hardware if my kids don't destroy it over the summer. The metal frame had to be molded a bit to get the pieces to fit into each other. I had to take some pliers and bend the tips of the poles slightly to make them fit perfect. Nothing a MAN can't handle. Overall: Get the INTEX pool with awesome reviews if you can wait for the shipping, otherwise buy this one and get over the fact you'll have to make some adjustments. To all the other reviewers complaining about there not being metal walls and the picture on the box being deceiving, your not the sharpest tool in the shed. The box clearly says 30" on the height and is a metal "FRAMED" pool. Happy swimming!

We had a similar 12' pool for the last three years that finally had to be replaced. This is not the same 12' pool that was sold before!! The other pool's metal frame was 36" with a water level of about 30". This pool is advertised as 30" - but the water level is LESS THAN 24"!!! The picture on the box shows adults in the pool with water up to their waists. These must be incredibly short adults or the product packaging is deliberately misleading. There is no mention in the online product description of the actual water depth.

We purchased this pool after returning the kind with the blow up ring on the top (which didn't stay inflated). We like this kind so much better! It seems a lot bigger even though the measurements on the box for the two different pools for the same. It's very sturdy & pretty easy to set up. Only took like an hr minus filling it up with water. That was my husband & I setting it up. It's a great size. The filter is mediocre, but it does alright. This pool should come with a ladder or you will either be lifting the kids in & out of they'll be climbing on the sides. It came with a few broken pieces (little plastic v's that go in the tubes to make them click together). I'm going to contact the company to get new ones, but it still works. Overall it was a good purchase. Oh yes, my kids are 7,3 & 1. The little one doesn't use it yet, but it is the perfect size for toddlers to elementary age kids.

I have four and five year old grandchildren and this pool is perfect. Deep enough for them to play and swim underwater. Shallow enough for them to run around in it without floaties and without me having to be in the pool with them. Still, it is big enough for me to float in and relax and the small size makes it so easy to keep clean. This is the exact pool I was looking for. Set up took about 45 minutes total with my husband and I working together.
