Are you looking to add a Easy Set Up Pool to your yard this year?

Here is what I have to say about these pools from my own experience:

I now have a permanent pool set up in my yard for the past 3 years, BUT I used one of the Easy Set up pools for years prior to having it. Before owning my home we rented and the kids had outgrown their pool and needed a bigger pool to swim and I am not one for the public pools. So we purchased on of the Easy Set Up pools for the yard knowing when we moved we could take it down. We started with a smaller one with the blow up ring and it was great. It was really around the time the first came out too. When that was too small for the kids we then went with the Easy Set up with the frame and we had that one for years. It even came with us to the home we live in now. We told the kids when they were able to swim really good and became strong swimmer we would then have a permanent pool installed and that is what we did. I think these pool are really great and do not cost a lot to have which makes it affordable for most for parents to give their kids and themselves the joy of owning a pool and creating memories of summertime fun.

So if you are considering purchasing one of these pools - I say go for it!!!

Things to consider before buying an Easy Set up Pool

  • The area you will be placing this pool must be level
  • Requires Constant Chemical Maintenance - so take that into consideration
  • You will need to fill it up with water - some of the larger pools require a water delivery. Fire departments have stopped filling pools, so keep this in mind.
  • Check your city requirements for having a pool. Do you need a permit? Will you need to have a fence up for safety?
  • You need electricity for the filter
  • Most of the times the Ladder is sold separately - so be sure to check
  • Covers, chemicals, vacuums are all added expenses
  • Having replacement Filter Cartridges on hand
  • Pool Safety - make sure there are pool rules and children should ALWAYS be supervised by an adult when in and around the pool

Easy Set Up Pools come in many sizes - for look for one that will meet your needs. There are also style options available as well.

      We have an Intex metal frame pool and we absolutely love it. It is so easy to set up and take down each year. Our kids spend hours upon hours in it each summer, and they have become great swimmers. It really makes our summer more enjoyable. Kids love coming to our house in the summer too:) By the way, we use a saltwater system instead of chemical bleach. It is easy to use and gentler on skin.

      Does anyone know if there is a floating pool fountain that will work with the Intex pool return?

      The easy set pool can be a very dangerous pool if you have small children. The sides can easily be pushed down allowing the child to get into the pool but not be able to get out. Please be very very careful when thinking of purchasing this product if you have small children.
