    suggestions for a temporary pool

    Hi
    Any recommendations for a pool that is easy to take down?
    I mostly want it to cool down in after gardening. I have plenty of storage space.
    Are the easy sets a good choice?
    Thanks!

    My previous neighbor has an easy set with an air filled rim for that purpose and he loved it...it neve seemed to cause him any problems and he would set it up and take it down in just a couple hours...minus the fill and drain process lol..Good luck

    Most of the Intex pools are fairly easy to setup and take down (seasonally). Their longevity isn’t the greatest but I had a friend who started off with a small one and then sold it on CraigsList to get a newer, larger one. He did that twice and eventually got the biggest one his yard could hold.

    If you want to go cheap at first, try searching CL fir a local Intex pool for sale. No reason to buy new and spend a lot of money on something you might not want.

    A China sand pump and filter off eBay for $115 does a Intex a lot of good, I'm still using the China sand filter for my 24'
