    This is a great pool and the salt system keeps the water very clean. Take the time to level the ground, as this is very important. Do not use sand to bring up the low parts, as the posts will later sink and make the pool very uneven. It is best to dig down the high parts. Clean the filter often, or replace every 2 weeks. It really affects the efficiency of the pump. When your pool is established and has sufficient salt, do not add more salt if/when the pool pump says that it has low salt, until you check the electrolytic cell. Calcium can form white scale on the titanium plates in the electrolytic cell and cause the pump to stop generating chlorine and give a low salt warning. Salt does not evaporate, so you should never have to add salt to the pool once it is established (unless the kids splash out a ton of water~ mine have tried, but the low salt warning has always been the cell). It is easy to take the cell apart and hose off the plates. Once this is done, the low salt warning should go away. I have to clean mine about every 2 weeks. I would have given this pool 5 stars had the ladder been a better quality or had it included child barriers to keep the kids from getting trapped underwater between the rungs. I replaced the ladder with a step entry. It allows the younger kids a resting place since they are unable to touch the bottom. Oh, and I would suggest that you use more than the thin ground tarp that is provided with this pool if you have rough and rocky ground like we do in AZ. You can never get rid of all the little rocks, and you will feel every one of them if you do not double up on the tarp. These can be purchased at [...] and such places for less than $30. It is well worth it. Even with the double tarp, we can still feel a few little rocks, but I don't think that they will be able to puncture 2 layers of tarp and the vinyl on the bottom of the pool.

    2 weeks of ecavating and leveling and i was finally ready. Water was delivered and as i stood admiring the finished product, I see this small pin sized leak spraying water from the side of the pool about 1 1/2 feet from the top edge. I was able to patch it up but Com'n, My brand new pool has a leak before i ever have a chance to swim in it! Intex wants you to RETURN the product so they can Confirm the "validity" of your claim. Well lets see, Between the (18) 16" pavers, 100' extension cord, sand, salt, water, cost of the pool, etc. I've seriously spent over $1,300.00 total and im supposed to what, drain $350 of salt water, disassemble, [...]? Seriously? Too bad i got burned, just wanted what i paid for. anyway Thanks for sending me a damaged item. My only recommendation to those who read this is go to your local pool store. It will cost you more but at least you can hold somone accountable if you get screwed and get a some resolution [...]

      Love it! The only complaint is the ladder. It was awful flimsy, wobbly when getting in/out of the pool. My husband built a deck & incorporated the ladder so now its way better. Otherwise, the pool and salt water system are great!! We have really enjoyed it!

          This pool is great for the price and we have enjoyed it all summer. Big enough to get 10 to 12 adults / children in at a time. I just came out of the pool 8:30 PM and the water was 78* (with the aid of a solar cover). Assembled very easy, added water were in the pool that afternoon. (water was trucked in). 1 thing the ground should be perfectly level as it will be next year. BUY ONE you can't go wrong.

            The saltwater system is the easiest water clarification system I have ever used. The pool package came with all the necessary accessories. It was easy to setup and use right away. The bonus sandbox was a nice surprise that my grandkids love.

              My husband did quite a bit of research prior to purchasing this particular pool, and after reading other reviews, we decided to buy it. It was a great buy,[...]. I was a bit skeptical, as it's been years since I've even seen an above ground pool, but was pleasantly surprised. The design is very sturdy, and it was fairly easy to assemble. Definitely a two person job though. The filter works great, no issues there, however I would advise to keep an eye on the salt content, as we did get a build up pretty soon after we installed the pool. It was an easy fix though (just clean the filter!). We have not had any issues so far with leaks, holes etc. The liner is very heavy duty. My only complaint would be that the ladder is a bit unstable, but it's not a big deal overall. It would not deter me from purchasing this pool.It's a great buy for the money!

                  My husband set this up in about an hour. He has always been the one not to want a swimming pool, now he has changed his mind. The salt water system is really nice in that you don't have all the chemicals. No burning eyes, no dried out skin. You do need the acid and the ph balancer to keep it right on the ph strips. I has taken us awhile to get it at that level due to rain, but it is our first year. I would recommend buying at least 3 filters and some filter cleaning spray from your local pool store. You need a new filter every 2 weeks and this way you can clean and rotate them.

                  My family uses this product everyday and have enjoyed the pool since purchased. Ground leveling is by far the biggest obstacle. This can be very frustrating if you don't think it through first.

                  I LOVE THIS POOL! IT truly was as easy to set up as they say! It can be tricky feeling out how long to run the chlorine generator, and getting the Ph and Chlorine balanced. Once you get that figured out, upkeep is a breeze. The ladder is kind of flimsy, larger folks will need to get a better one. The free sandbox is awesome!

                      This pool is everything that it is billed to be. It is a nice high quality DIY above ground pool. Assembly was easy and I love the saltwater system. I have not had any issues with it all summer.

                      One word of caution, when the instructions say place the pool on "level ground" they really mean level ground. The first time I put it up it was on, what appeared to be "level ground", and once it was filled I noticed it was about a little low on one end. Soon it started leaning. Not good. It boils down to when you first start the fill, if the first inch or so of water is not evenly distributed across the pool, drain and re-level. Again, when they say level they really mean level. FWIW, I ended up using my laser level to get the perimeter to within 1/2 of level and all is good
