When you have two children to entertain all summer, there is nothing like a cool refreshing dip in the pool! The Summer Escapes Sand and Sun easy set pool provides just that, in an affordable way!

The setup takes only minutes, and the hours of fun you can enjoy are endless! You simply lay the provided ground cover on level ground (Now this is a feat in our house as my husband thinks it has to be exactly at level! I think he spent the majority of his setup time on this step, even breaking out his trusty level to guarantee it was just right!), Set your pool on the cover and blow up the inflatable top ring. You are ready for water! Now this step took hours.. And hours.. However, you can call your local fire department for a quick and easy fill, and the only drawback is that it will be on their schedule.. So if you are impatient like I am.. I just started up the garden house and enjoyed some sun while it filled.

You then connect the included pump, throw some pool shock in (Not included but only runs about $4.89/Bag) And let the pool cycle for a day or two. You are ready for your cool and relaxing summer right in your own backyard!

The kit also includes a cute dolphin volleyball net and basketball game that floats on the water, All makes great entertainment options for parties or family gatherings. The ladder is fully adjustable and easy to store away when the pool is not in use to make sure little ones don't accidently fall in the pool. Pool maintenance tools that are included: Skimmer pole, filter, pump (with built in 1" chlorine tablet feeder system), vacuum and pool cover.

There are several accessories available for purchase, such as the skimmer basket that we installed to keep the debris from sinking to the bottom of the pool, a great value to save you on vacuuming time at only $12.99. And of course every pool is incomplete without some good old-fashioned dive sticks and a couple of floats for those lazy days!

Add all this up and for less than $400 you can enjoy your summers at home without spending huge fees for public beaches or pools!
