Metal Frame Pool
The pool was easy to put together, but you really must level the ground and do it well. The skimmer sits quite high up on the pool wall, and if your ground is not very level you might not get the correct water flow into the skimmer.
The pool is a good size and it's deep enough to really swim in, which is nice. I did notice one pin hole in the pool when we started filling it, but it hasn't caused any substantial problems as far as water loss. You have to be realistic -- this is a giant plastic pool in a box. It's not going to last a lifetime. I do feel that for the price the pool is a good value, and we have certainly enjoyed being able to swim whenever we want. I would recommend it if you are looking for an inexpensive way to stay cool all summer.

great sturdy pool
This pool has a strong liner. It was easy to assemble even though the instructions were minimal. Took two of us to assemble it & no bits broke for us. We laid the liner out on the ground sheet & inserted the legs with the top joints attached then connected the joining poles. However, we left four corners unjoined (four poles joined. Next one not) so as not to put any strain on the poles or the plastic pins when lifting each side (hope this makes sense). Took less than 2 hrs to assemble & a day & a half to fill the pool. Great buy.

so far so good, pool is almost full and it took about 3 hours from beginning to end to build, only two people needed and I think 1 could do it alone. Instructions were not bad for the pool but for the filter and pump not great! Pool is very big and deep for the price. Only thing is the height is so high that you cannot see kids swimming unless you are standing right at the pools edge, may build a deck or something to be able to hang out at their level

nice pool, well made but difficult to assemble
seems to be well made, high qulaity parts, and the actuall liner is really strong. they even include a few spare pieces which by the way you will need as a few things break during assembly. its very heavy in the box, needs at least 2 very strong people. assembly canbe done by one person though extra hands are handy. the pins holding the supports are hard to put in, and a few will break and this is why i think they include extra pins, just plastic snap pins. the instructions are really bad, there are no i mean no step by step illustrations, simply a diagram showing where the parts go assembled and part numbers that dont exist anywhere except the instructions. you really need to look at the picture and to think as you go with this. it took abiout 4 hours to assemble, and take a long time to fill up from a garden hose. would i recomend this pool, yes, its good qualtiy and will last a while if you take care of it. bottom line, a good pool, durable and well made, lots of extras included, but not for a amatuer handyman. to be honest, assembly needs minimum 3 good men
