What is the lifespan for pools like this? Also does it have to be emptied in the winter or just covered like a traditional pool?
Be a nice person and enjoy life

Needs to be emptied and stored as per manufacturer instructions. If not it will only last a year

Height is 48” (4ft) so I would assume 6 inches under that or so at water height

So that's a water refill every year? This must cost $700+ to fill no?

My local rate is $1.65/m³, and this pool is about 26m³, so that's $43 to fill.

last summer these things were going for $2-3K on resellers. Good to see normal prices back in stock.

Putting it up and taking it down each year would be such a pain. I doubt very much that many people would do it for long. Spend more on a quality above ground pool that could last a very long time. Mine is 30 years old and doing just fine. Also you need to be very careful to get a pool that is manufactured and tested to survive Canadian winters. Much of the stuff sold by Amazon is meant for the US.

it was also 699 instore earlier in the spring/summer this year. Given winter is around the corner, might be worthwhile to hold off till 2022

It is certainly a pain but when comparing with typical closing/opening it is not that much more work or time in reality. Not ideal if you don't have some helpers around the house and if you very limited storage.

The real reason not to buy it is esthetics and size, but if that is not top of mind and you are looking for something affordable, this will do great. Kids don't really mind and have a blast in this type of pools but you won't impress guests when inviting them over to your mini resort.

I bought a similar pool 4 years ago. Set up and fill takes 2 days. Water cost is about $50. Drain and disassemble takes 3-4 days since I leave it out in the sun to dry before packaging it up. Initial cost was $1000, yearly cost is about $300 (chemicals and maintenance) - set up June, take down September.

Family spends around 3 hours daily x 90 days = 270 hours of summer activity & exercise. It's a great, inexpensive investment if you have a backyard.

Covid relief. These things are lifesavers. Walmart usually has the 18 footers for about same price.

These things are great and you can get a lot of use out of them. Just draining mine now.

Especially those very humid days. Parents with young kids know.

= sanity
