Great pool. To be honest unless you have four or five people helping you. Hire someone to set this pool up. And don't wait until the heat of summer to do it. Other wise this has been a great pool. This will be my second summer with it and so far so good. The quality of the pool is good and the price point was good too.
We had 5 people helping us and had the pool put up in 3 hours. The sand filter calls for 110 pounds of sand however we bought two 50 pound bags at a pool supply store and it works fine. Be sure ground is very level and read directions carefully. My husband skipped putting in all the screws to attach the skimmer and it drips a bit. We will fix it later but it is a wonderful pool! I threw in a bag of shock and put one chlorine tablet in a floater and the water is perfect. Be sure and fill pool about half way up the skimmer for the filter to run smoothly. Highly recommend!!
I cannot complement this product enough! The quality of materials is top notch with very easy to follow instructions. Even when you make a mistake, it is easy to backtrack and correct. Every step you do, it is obvious a lot of thought was put into making it what you expected plus more! Even the cover has a special feature to make it easier for one person to handle. I look forward to using it year around to keep me fit and prepared for teaching my aqua classes for an additional 20+ years. This pool is perfect for physical therapy and strength training. Just need to be able to climb a ladder.
Make sure you have a team of friends to help put it together over a weekend or pay a professional to do it for you. If you do it yourself, take your time to prepare the site and make it is level. A lot of people make the mistake of not ensuring the ground is completely level and later have an expensive and possibly in some cases a dangerous mess/accident.
