Snapset Pool, 6-ft x 15-in
Generally a good product. No need to worry about air leaks! The floor seems pretty tough but we put a blanket down under it so it's softer. We use it on our deck, not our grass. I just bought my second one. Our old one lasted two summers and a little bit this summer. This summer the rim was finally so brittle from three summers and winters (it was stored in an unheated shop both winters) that I couldn't patch up all the holes. Although the Gorilla Tape I used worked really well. The base was still fine, it was the edge that was brittle.
Tip: put lines of Gorilla tape on the base before filling so the sun heats up the water faster.

I purchased this last minute for my daughters birthday get-together. I was slightly worried with the lack of description off the website but after reading the reviews I pulled the trigger and took it home with me.
Things to know...
....the floor of the pool is just a thin layer of plastic liner. No different than a plastic layer from an inflatable product. It would be wise to put something underneath to avoid the pool floor from rips or the possibility of a puncture.
....The product needs to be on a level...somewhat level...surface. The water is the force that keeps the pool in its designed shape so you need to get the water to fill up as it pushes on the harder side walls at the same time. We initially tried to fill the pool on our slightly slanted back lot and the pool would not keep it's shape. It would just spill.
....the walls of the pool are softer than I thought. It keeps it safe for kids. I was afraid of a sharp hard plastic injury but that was not the case. Very safe. The pool will collapse before your child gets hurt.
Hope this is helpful.

Worth the money
This will be he best $17 you will ever spend. With 3 children 7 and under and having a small backyard this was worth the price. Kids wanted to splash on the pool day after day. With the hot summer days coming you will be glad you have it!

Great quality for price - EASY!!
I first thought I'd have to "snap" the sides to the bottom some how, but it came as one piece. Nice to have someone help hold the sides with you while it fills (I suggest a cool drink and lawnchair position) Took only about 15 -20 mins to fill. Don't underestimate the weight of the water. Make sure you place in the desired location first as cannot be moved after. Also, I put an old comforter underneath to help protect the bottom from twigs or pebbles and it provided a softer bottom as well!
