  • We got the 8' x 36" easy set up pool last year. The kind that the top ring inflates. Its great. We enjoyed it all summer.
    I found a pool ladder on Freecycle. You'll definitely need one.
    My kids were 2 and 6 last year and we really enjoyed it. It was perfect for us. I'll use it again this year and consider upgrading next year.

  • We have an above ground aluminum frame 15' x 30' pool. It's quite large enough to get MANY people in it at a time and is very sturdy. I LOVE it in the summer. We received it free of charge (just had to disassemble and remove it ourselves), but we've replaced the liner ($300) and the pump ($350) and have had to purchase the chemicals. I'd definitely recommend it over the easy set up pools that can be ripped and require repairs or replacement. JMO.

  • I had the 18' blow up pool, what a gross mess. They are great fun, especially if your yard is really flat...this is key, but what a nightmare to try and keep clean. The filters sold with them are a joke! We now have a steel wall 21' round pool and love it!
