I purchased this pool for my children last year to keep them cool during their days out in the summer sun. The pool is very easy to set up and very easy to take down, with out any major work required. You simply inflate it to bring it to its height and structure. While set up is a breeze, the pool isn't that large so if you are trying to fit more than two adults, and two small children in the pool, I would not recommend this pool for you. We were looking for a pool that would keep us cool when we were outside, and this pool does the job perfectly. The pool was affordable, and it is easy to keep clean as well. We have seen it at different stores so it is very easy to find in retailers, and online.
