      This is a great pool for the money. We have the 16 ft. Not to small for an enjoyable swim and not to big to take down in the fall. Use chlorine tablets, algaecide, and change filters regularly and the water stays crystal clear. I have no troubles with this pool or pump at all. Love the easy pull up plugs to change filters. Lots better than the blue pools with the bubbles cause when it rains, and it rained a lot here in ME this summer I don't have to worry about too much water and the sides caving in and dumping half the water out like what happened when we had the less expensive one. Over all nice pool. Ladder could be better and not crazy about the vacuum set up that uses hose water to push debris into a net but, I'm working on buying attachments to hook into the intake. Floor attachment and a hose should work good with the handle they supply. Going to try something different. We have well water and using the hose water to clean the pool just makes the water cold. For the cost I'm happy they came out with a nice pool I can afford and use year after year. I do take mine down every fall. Thanks for reading.

      Pool Solid; Intex not

      Bought the Intex ultra setup. Frame is much more sturdy than a regular frame. However, they give the cheapest plastic clips to hold the pool together. Half of them arrived bent and useless. Had the pool up and running for about a month and then pool pump stopped working. Called Intex and received a message we are too busy to help you please call back later. Unbelievable. Kept calling and finally got a hold of someone in China. They said once I fax my order it would be 3 weeks for a new one. Kept following up with them and finally after three weeks, got another pool pump.

      Great investment

      We have had this pool 4 years now. each year we take it down for the winter and my husband wonders why as he is sure it would not be reusable the next year. Well, each year we are glad we did. Though it has gotten one or two leaks we have been able to patch successfully and we could not be happier with this pool. Be sure it is level when setting up, probably the most important thing, will make it pretty easy to set up.

      Extremely Pleased!

      This pool is so much nicer than I expected. It is much more sturdy than the blue one. I would definitely buy this product again. I am a 50 year old female and I set up about 98% of it by myself. It was set up, filled with water, and ready to go in less than 5 hours. The only thing my son helped me with was holding the side wall up while I finished the final pieces. I wasn't strong enough to put the final top rail piece in place, so he also did that. This pool was a great value.

      Very happy with this pool.

      This pool is a good size for our family. It's big but not too big. Set up was quick and easy. We have a good level spot for it. If you buy this pool just be sure to place it on level ground. Some other reviews mentioned the ladder but we have no issue. The laddre seams sturdy and stable enough.

      Beware of your state laws & local ordinances!

      This pool seems great...good price, easy delivery & setup. But, just before we cracked open the box, we learned of some state laws and zoning ordinances that would make owning this pool very difficult. For example, in Pennsylvania, there are strict rules about the type and location of the outlet to plug in the filter, along with requirements for the type of fence you have. Between those rules & our town's $150 permit fee, we decided to send it back.

      Love this pool!!! Intex 16 x 48

      This pool is well worth the money spent...which is a great price anyways...took us 1 hour to put together and about 12 hours to fill..best results and time we had three people, so easy to follow instructions and dvd, absolutely love it...very strudy and does not shake or move when in pool, just dont put powder shock chemical directly in pool ...my mistake and it faded my pool liner bottom.. but other than that great pool for the family.....will definitely buy product again and recommended it everyone who wants a pool..

      Great Pool!

      I brought this for my 10 year old daughter and she loves it. A lot of room for everyone to enjoy! I can even swim laps from side to side. Very study material, the only thing the ladder is a little wobbly when getting into the pool. It took my husband and me about two hours to put this pool together. We ran into difficulty with the plastic clips that attached the rods. The clips would not go in correctly and we had to continuously remove and position the plastic. I think for the money paid, Intel should make the clips metal or permanently attached to the rod. I would recommend having someone to help put together. It took about 10 hours to fill with the garden hose. Overall, the instructions and the DVD are very easily to follow. Great investment for summer family fun!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Intex Pool-16' x 48"

      After many hours of levelling prepwork that had been mentioned in earlier reviews and putting a 15' circle area with approx 5" of sand for a softer and liner safe flooring, also putting in 16 6" by 6" pavers for legs, pool seems pretty stable. Very happy with the results.

      Excellent pool

      This pool was very easy to set up and is well worth every cent I spent on it. My kids and I love it and use it everyday all day. It is very durable..way better than the pool we had last year that collapsed before the summer was over. Its big enough and sturdy enough that we have decided that we are going to leave it up year round. I would definately suggest this pool to anyone looking to buy one. Its a little pricey but with layaway its very affordable. It will actually save you money in the long run. I hope you enjoy yours as much as we do!!!!

      In mad love

      I love this so much, my son is extremely hyper and causes waves like crazy and it hold up to it. the filter works like a dream, you just have to watch your chemicals, and the pool cover is not a cheap one. Will only buy an intex from now on, it also gives extra patch covers, and too much to mention... love it

      Great Pool

      This is a great pool. The set up was very easy. The only problem I had was making sure the ground was level (my yard is not very level). After addressing the level issue, the pool went together 1, 2, 3. My entire family loves the pool. It is not too big and certainly not too small. I do although agree with the ladder issue. It does not have a platform on the top which makes it harder to get in and out, and it is a little unsteady. The pump, vaccume, skimmer, cover, and pool itself are great. I am very happy I purchased the product.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Intek Ultra Frame Pool

      The 16' pool was easy to set up, and surprisingly study. The two problems are the ladder is not too sturdy, and they send a skimmer with the pool, but no adapter to attach it to the pump inlet. I expected the ladder not to be sturdy, but the adapter to be able to use the skimmer would be a plus.
