We've purchased one for this summer. We are now waiting for the ground to be dug down about 6 inches (this will happen this weekend) then we need to put a plastic liner (not sure what that's called over the freshly dug ground and then fill in the liner with sand and then level the sand. Finally we will be able to set up the pool. Ours looks like interlocking tubes that fit around it. Everyone I've talked to about them even here on CM say they are a great fun investment. We are looking forward to it being usable before the kids get out of school next Friday! Good Luck with yours and enjoy it all summer long.
