Cheap and nasty. You get what you pay for, so don't expect anything more!
The inflatable ring was already punctured when I received the product! It took 2+ hours to inflate (not completely inflate), though initially I couldn't understand why it took so long and was still flaccid, for want of another word! Eventually, we discovered the holes (x 2) and contacted Clark Rubber. The pool was only used in a relatively deflated state for 1 day! The inflatable ring is of such poor quality material that it really can't withstand any sort of movement, including being packaged it seems! When I contacted CR they agreed to refund...my purchase instead of arranging another pool for me (the CR person wanted me to think that they were being very nice by allowing the refund!), the problem was that I then had nearly a full container of chlorine ($33+), a pool cover ($33) that had only been used overnight, tarps (ground covers) and the delivery fee ($33). So over $100 of products (can't refund) for a $109 crappy pool! I was surprised that the CR person acknowledged that they have many people who buy a framed pool the year after they purchased an inflatable ring pool, because the inflatable ring pools are poor quality. Had she told me this in the first place, I would not have bought it. Don't waste your time and money.

First time used rum deflates
Set our pool up yesterday and the kids 2 and 6 went for a swim. Nothing overly silly given their age and within one hour we noticed the rim deflating. We thought maybe just over use so we blew it up again but it’s now obvious that it’s got a whole in it somewhere. Of course we can’t find the leak ao now we cannot use the pool and there are none left at Clarke Rubber. Disappointed big time and until manufacturers can toughen the rim I won’t be buying or recommending these pools to anyone.

We’re on our fourth inflatable pool, of various sizes. We put ours under our carport so the grandkids can play in the heat of the day. They love it. And because of their reasonable price, at the end of the season we throw it away.

Makes summer the best
With only a courtyard this easyset pool is magnificent for cooling down and big enough to lounge about and get the summer feels !! The filter makes it so clean and a dash of chlorine and bobs your uncle
Best purchase this year
Purchased in September 2020 at Target Australia for $49.00.
We have had our pool for one year. We left for a weekend and a hole appeared In the seem. Really disappointed!!! I paid $130 for my pool, I expected more than 1 year. I'll never buy an intex pool again.

I never got the chance to use the pool
Last summer we purchased this pool it was easy set up all was going well all part fit, all blown up really to fill and as the pool was fill decided to take a quick wall and upon re turn my new 12 wk year old pup bit little holes in the ring of the pool well there go's our new pool
Great value .
We had an older 12ft model with a larger white inflatable ring around the top .
We've got 3 seasons out of it but it's now got a bit out of shape and is leaking air . Bought on sale from Kmart for about $60 , This thing has been an awesome investment .
We sprung for a cover , foot bath and simple hose vacuum , it really has been very low maintenance . We only leave it up for probably 3 months of the year then clean it and pack it away in the shed .
I'm not sure what people expect for the ridiculously low cost of these things .
If you don't want stress, avoid these pools!
Bought a large above ground intex pool that holds about 17000 litres. The filters are sub par and don't move the water as it needs to be. If you use a flocculant to clarify the water, be prepared to drain it and clean it because the filter is not strong enough to suck the particles out. Even with testing the water every day, the water will still go dull and adding a clarifier tablet only made it worse by adding MORE particles to the water sending it milky. I am obsessive about the water and no amount of professional pool advice has helped. Save...your money up and buy a proper in ground pool. I will never buy another of these and I've owned 3 of them all with the same problems. If I didn't have a kid who was a water baby, I would slash it open with a razor blade.
My ring just blew out after a rain. No other damage any where in yard.
I bought my current 18'x42" pool around 2015. I had to replace my old one, same model. My old pool lasted 14 years. Although the new one was much thinner and lighter. I did expect it to last more than 2.5 seasons. It basically just blew out no warning. I got up Fri July 20th. Unplugged the pump before going to work and left it was fine. When I came home after it had rained the entire ring on top had slits up and down about every 18". This pool has been up since May with absolutely no sign of a problem. And at the end of the season as with the p...ool before. I took it down and rolled it up on a hot day storing it in a barrel. Now I have no pool and no response from Intex. I would like to tell everyone, unless they go back and make these pools better, don't buy one. Unless you want to replace it frequently.
First find two pin holes in pool liner before set up. Had to patch before finishing set up. Then pump worked for one day. Really disappointed mine is a Intex 15×48 above ground. Sorry I bought it. So now I have to get a new pump. Read reviews ahead of time but thought they had improve product.
Intex Above ground pool 20x48
I bought an Intex above ground pool and I have had it over a year and I winterized it as recommended buy the manufacturer, as spring rolls around and I’m ready to open the pool up for the summer I noticed that the poles had rusted and were breaking apart. So I drain the pool the rest of the way and start taking the pool down to see how bad the damage is and come to find out that every pole was rusted and over half of them broke apart while I was trying to take it apart. I called Intex and have got nothing but the run around and they say that th...ey recommend taking pool down for the winter but not mandatory to do so as long as it is winterized correctly, so as I have been getting the run around trying to get someone to help me all they can say is that there is a 90 day limited warranty and that there is nothing they can do and they say that because it occasionally it gets below 32 degrees where I live that the cold weather affect the poles and could have caused the issue I’m having. So basically they are a crap product and they don’t stand behind there product al they want is us hard working people to keep buying there product that is crap. The sad part is that they even said they could help me purchase new pole for my pool but they wouldn’t help with price or even give a discount but they pride there selfs with great customer service, if you ask me and my experience there customer service sucks and they won’t admit when there product is faulty even if it is after there so called 90 day limited warranty on there products. I hope everyone sees this and sees what kind of company they are, they don’t stand behind anything and all they want us to do is spend our hard earned money on there products they don’t even stand behind. I know everyone’s experience isn’t the same but I will say I will never buy another Intex product ever. If I could post pictures I would so everyone can see what happened and what it looks like.
Cheap Summer fun.
(8 ft w filter). Very good. Despite size, you will need chlorine (eg. floating canister) and maintenance or pool will soon get slimey and unsanitary; there's no avoiding it. (I went to Bunnings for pool advice and products (or u can go to local pool store). Tip: for first use: air out a day or so before filling up with water for first use. (strong plastic smell permeated into water i had to drain and refill. fine now). Clean out filter with pressure from hose once a week.Great for older kids or adults.
I bought a 36" round raft for my grand kids and the valve does not stay shut when I put air in it. I did not find the receipt and they do not stand behind their products. Offered me nothing. Not a good brand to buy. It's not like I was asking for a new pool just a new raft that would hold air.
A new pool with leaks
I was very disappointed in this pool, ordered it thru amazon, my mother in law got it as a gift to us for our grandchildren, as soon as we put it up, leak #1, then after an hour of putting water in oops there comes leak #2 I was so mad, you should not put a product out there you cannot back up! I will not buy another pool from you.
We luv the pool but the ladder rusted
My husband and myself bought the pool for our young daughter.
We luv it.
One problem, the ladder rusted so we had to buy a new ladder.
It was 200.00 dollars for the new ladder.
The pool itself is great!
It's our Hampton beach!
We luv the pool itself! Thank you!
Be careful, only buy where you can return to store, intex is terrible if pool is defective. i guess
purchased 16x42 pool, days filling water 14000+ litres , small leak around the protruding hose connection. phoned intex, i have to drain, cut the pool apart and send them the logo, the drain plug, piece of liner, piece where it leaks, at my cost. Intex not willing to do anything.
Kids love it!
I have the 8ftby30 pool and set up was pretty easy. Wish it would have came with a pump would of gave a 5 start rating but overall kids love it! Waiting to see how it will hold up over time. Great buy for the price! Would definitely recommend just have to buy your own pump. Still not a bad deal for the little ones.
Great pool but...
Great pool eg sizing ( can fit in a small flat space) for the price but it was very easily popped and so we decided to buy another one and the pump wasn't strong enough for the pool at all so didn't last long and was quite shallow we have now upgraded and regret buying this pool previously.
It's to small for my 6'8 brother who has a disorder like down syndrome and I find it so rude how you wouldn't make a cheap big pool for me. Oh and I would like it to be heated and it to have like colour lighting in it. Thank you for your time and hopefully I see an improvement.
Questions & Answers
I have really poor water flow on my 10ft intex easy set pool - the filter cartridge is completely clean - what else can it be???
Happens every year to ours they’re pretty average filters - we returned the first 2 pools and got them replaced but the cost of refilling the pool was expensive they hold a lot of water - we now just use extra chemicals and got a $40 hand held hose powered pool filter from a pool shop to get the silt and debris from bottom - but the filters all stop working after a month for us and emptying and refilling is a pain - but we preservere cause the pool otherwise fits all our needs
Thank you - our filter hardly moves the water!
Can you only half fill the Intex 10' pool & if so will it still stand up properly please
No , the blow up bladder at top is what keeps the water in - the water pressure from having it full pushes that blow up tube to the top if
That makes sense - fill it up - it’s great and feels like a plunge pool with its size
What happens if you don’t get all the wrinkles out of the bottom of the pool? will it still stand up? we have a 12’ x 30” pool from intext
