INTEX 24'x 12' x 48" Oval Frame Pool Set
Totally worth it!
 
Pros: Durable
Cons: The clip-on filter system
Best Uses: Summer
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We bought this pool with part of our "vacation fund." It was on sale, so we figured it was worth it even if it only lasted one year. We're going on our third year with this pool, and it's been fantastic. We got the Intex salt water chlorine generator, too. We also purchased some after-market solar panels from another vendor.This set-up has been a fantastic investment.

People of all ages have had countless hours of fun with this pool. Our only complaint is that the filter that clips on the edge of the pool doesn't work well. It slips around and is kind of touchy. You can't just clip it on and walk away -- you have to check on it every now and then to make sure it's not sucking air.

You have to take the time to set up the pool as directed and maintain it -- change filters, clean it, etc. Keep it covered when not in use. We run our pump more than the directions say to, at the recommendation of the owner of the local pool store. Keep the kids off the edges. Remember to follow safety instructions and remove the ladder after every use.

If you take care of this pool and don't thrash it, it should last a long time. As we enter our third year with ours, it shows no signs of use.

Climb in, the water's fine!!
