Our first pool was just like the Intex pool Index above, we purchased that one about 5 years ago. It was nice but then we graduated to the bigger, Intex frame pool last year which felt more like an above ground pool, much more permanent but we were still able to take it down at the end of the winter and store it away in the basement for the next year. We purchased ours on Amazon and the delivery driver was nice enough to bring it all the way around to the backyard for me.
The most important issue to putting together an Intex pool Index is to make sure the ground is completely level. I can’t stress this enough. The first time I put together the Easy Set Intex pool the ground wasn’t completely level (I thought it was, but one side was just a little off) and when I had a wise guy in the pool he messed with the side and down it went, luckily I was closed enough to pull it back up before all the water ran out. So please make sure to put any of these pools on a level sturdy surface, learn from me.
