The Intex pool has fantastic reviews from buyers and is very highly rated. All you need to do to set it up is to inflate the top ring and fill the pool with water. It's easy to see why it's one of the best rated Intex swimming pools.

It has a safety feature, a Ground Fault Interrupter, that automatically shuts off the pump if electrical current is exposed to the water. The pool has a 3,736-gallon water capacity which is not entirely deep, but it can comfortably fit adults and kids alike.

You can drain the water efficiently, as it has a drain plug that connects to a garden hose for the purpose of draining the pool. It also features a dual suction outlet fittings for better water circulation.

Some reviewers have complained that the plug that comes with the pool does not turn these water over enough, but you can fix this problem by upgrading your plug to a better one. The Intex pool will last you a very long time with good maintenance, and it works incredibly well. Some owners said they have had theirs for 6 years and it still works well. Ultimately, where and how you store it will determine its life span.

Ease of Installation and Use

All it takes to set your Intex pool is to inflate it at the top ring and fill it up with water. It requires little maintenance and care.

Once you set it up, you only have to clean it weekly if you choose. You can opt to set up the pool for a season, or you can leave all year round if you want. Either way, it will suit your purposes perfectly. Here's a great video on how to set up and inflate the pool:

How well it works

The pool is quite large and ideal for some family fun. The pool has laminated PVC sidewalls and is made from a puncture-resistant material which adds to its sturdiness.

Before you install this pool, it is best to level the ground so that it can be more stable and to prevent future problems like the pool tipping over when your kids jump into it.

The size of the pool means it can conveniently fit several adults at once while kids older than six can play in the pool. Even your pets can get in the pool as long as they are not tiny and are supervised. It is not too shallow neither is it too deep, making it a great above ground pool for children.

You can swim or wade in the pool if you like. The package includes a debris cover to keep the pool clean, a filter pump which is quite small compared to the size of the pool but works well nonetheless.

If you find the pump unsatisfactory, you can always change it. The pool also comes with a ladder so kids can climb into it easily. Assembling is straightforward thanks to the inclusion of a ground cloth and a setup and maintenance DVD.

How long it lasts

The Intex pool is very durable. Some reviewers have stated that it lasts for years. You can inflate it season after season, and with proper maintenance, it will continue to serve you well.

The Intex pool is a great addition to any backyard. It can fit up to seven adults comfortably; children can play or swim in the pool.

The pool is shallow enough for pets to swim. It is an excellent choice for hot summer seasons and a much cheaper option than an inground pool. Just set it up on level ground and splash around. You can stash it up after the season or and bring it out when you need it. The pool is so affordable, some people throw it out after each season and buy a new one.

Warranty/Return Policy

The product comes with a 90-day limited manufacturer's warranty and has a return policy of 30 days from the date of delivery (with conditions). Here's a list of everything it includes:


The Intex inflatable pool is an excellent product and a great and low-cost choice for a family home. It is far cheaper to purchase than an inground pool. Installing and draining the pool is easy.

The major issues we have with this pool are things that are fundamental to owners of pools which are storage and maintenance.

The pool is quite large, and it could be difficult to store it as well as maintenance is not easy as this pool set doesn’t come with any cleaning tool. You have to spend extra to get the tools. If size and ease of maintenance does not bother you much, you should buy this pool set, but if it does bother you or you’re on a tight budget, we advise you look at other pool sets that we have reviewed here that are smaller in size and come with maintenance tools
