Smile "Quick Set" pools... who has/had one?

You know... these...

 


 


I used to think these were so ugly & weird... but I'm kinda changing my tune now!! It'd be nice to have a pool in the yard for the 3mos or so we CAN use it... and be able to put it away for the other 9!
Dh wants one of the biiig ones.

Anyways... any experiences you wanna tell me about... warnings... advice... etc???

TIA!!

We had one a couple of years ago. I have a little story about ours. It is kinda weird and long so bare with me.

We set it up with not too many problems. Pretty easy as long as you already have a level place to put it. We didnt so we had to level ours which was the hardest part and a pain in my A$$!!!! Anyway, we get it set up and filled and use it for about a month and come out one day to find it empty and collapsed
 
Here is the weird part. We live in a house that was made in 1932 on an acre of land. In the backyard there is this HUGE cement ring that we are told was used for storing water in case of a fire or something like that. It is HUGE!!!!!! Anyway, we go to bed one night, get up the next morning and the pool is empty and there is NO water on the ground anywhere. Now if there was a leak in it you would think the ground around it would be wet at the very least if not have a ton of water in the cement ring. There was no sign of any water anywhere. To this day we have no idea what happened and we never tried to refill it as it was coming to the end of summer anyway. We ended up getting rid of it and going with a different pool. We now have a pool that is $4,800 brand new that we got for $500 and it works wonderfully. I know this is all irrelevent to your question but I just thought I would share our expierience with our Quick Set Pool.

While it was up, it was nice to be able to get in and cool off in

That IS weird that the water just disappeared?!?!

Our yard is relatively flat... I don't think it'd require too much work to make a level surface.

I know someone who had one and a racoon or squirrel tore a hole in it. They are getting one that has the metal frame now instead of the soft-type ones.

My ex inlaws had one once. It set up really easy, but one afternoon I evidently leaned to heavily againt the side and the next thing we knew the whole thing collapsed and I was catipulted through the yard on a wave of water.
