EncinoMom’s Made in the Shade Shop:
Intex 18ft X 48in Easy Set Pool
We have had several different above ground pools as our needs have changed over the years. We started with an inflatable kiddie pool and graduated to larger and larger models. We used this pool with a salt water system, which we loved. Typically, once you take the pool down (around Halloween, here in So Cal), you’ll have a patch of dead grass and the pool will end up in the trash. We tried to reuse or rehome the pools as we went. Thanks to my husband’s meticulous maintenance, we we’re able to get up to 3 years of use from one pool. The models with the poles and external supports take a lot more work to set up. If your pool site is not COMPLETELY level, you will not be happy! Take whatever time you need to get this right so you can relax and enjoy the pool. Once the ground is level, this pool is the easiest to set up – no question. It’s large enough for adults to enjoy, too!
