1. The perfect size for my 2 & 3 year old. They can stand up and swim.
2. I can float in here too, or just sit and relax.
3. It really was easy to set up - if you are leaking water, it was set up incorrectly. You can pretty much ignore the directions.
4. You will need to spend another 30$-40$ on pool supplies (filters, shock, naturalized, chlorine, pool cover, solar cover, skimmer, temperature gauge) Ask at a pool store, the proper amount to use (you don't want to over chlorinate.) Tips:
1. we got an inflatable solar sun ring, and it works great (you won't need a huge solar cover). Temp is around 80 degrees. The inflatable covers about half of the pool.
2. I skim the pool twice per day (the kids swim 2 or 3 times per day, so it helps keep out a lot of debris.)
3. I only run the filter at nights - over the past few weeks I have found, that if you are skimming and following the directions for the pool chemicals (I asked our local Mom & Pops pool supplier) you really won't have to run it too often.
4. Do NOT lean on the sides - it lets out water and can be incredibly dangerous to small children (I am very vigilant about watching my children, but from what I observed, it is a potential danger)
5. The black "top hat" that plugs the OUT tube for the pool filter, is easily kicked off - so if you see any leakage, check THAT first.
6. Getting a hole isn't a huge deal because you can get a replacement kit from the Intex site for around 2 bucks (or if you purchased the walmart warranty, just get a new pool.) I love this. I wish we got it sooner considering that since last year we have purchased: 2 inflatable kiddie pools (24$ each), 2 plastic pools (20$ each - they didn't survive the Texas sun) and one small cheapie inflatable pool (9$). As you can see by the images, they LOVE this pool. They can actually swim in it, unlike the kiddie pools, but it isn't too deep that they can't stand up.
