Kmart/Sears is selling this "complete" pool set at a discount. One odd thing I found was that the Kmart version gave $22 back in ShopYourWay points, but Sears only gave back $2. I included the Kmart link for that reason.

Amazon has this same deal, just bought mine last week and is getting dropped off today. Walmart also has the same deal but it doesn't come with the ground cloth or cover.

kmart gives me $2 cashback too, even though it says $20 on the product page.

Make sure these are on completely level ground. Laying down sand first is best. Then trowel out the sand as smoothly as possible. Whack out all of the wrinkles in the liner with a broom as you're filling.

Seriously, it's GOT to be level or it won't stand up properly. Use a level on a long 2x4 to check for trueness.

I have put up 4 of these style pools over the years (from a 12' to 22')
Level ground is key. Anymore than 3-4" off level from one side to the other and you will not be pleased with the water level. More than 6" off level and be very wary of the structure collapsing under the unbalanced load of water pushing out on the sides.
The instructions will tell you not to use sand for these but a little bit wont hurt anything - consider having a couple tons delivered to the site. Note, you cannot level with sand - IT WILL NOT WORK! A gallon of water weighs nearly 8 1/2 lbs. This pool will hold almost 4000 gallons of water (remember the side walls are 42" so at most you are looking at about 3' of water depth or it will be over filled) - you can do the math - that's a lot of weight.
Few last things to mention, the pumps that come with these are not really strong enough to filter the water all summer long so be prepared to scrub the pool walls and floor at least once a week, depending on usage. There is no skimmer, you WILL WANT ONE! These little pools grow algae really well, especially with little feet tracking in grass, leaves and fertilizer all summer long, and considering the stock pump is barely adequate and no skimmer. I am not trying to dissuade you, just want you to be informed of what you are getting into. On my now 4th go with these types of pools I have upgraded the pump to the largest one intex makes, added a salt system, added a floating skimmer and also got the intex pool bot. Maintenance has gone from a complete and total PITA to all but "set it and forget it"!

Good Luck!

Can you list out the additional parts you purchased? Maybe add some amazon links if you don't mind? I'm purchasing this and would rather buy additional parts than deal with a heavy maintenance item.

Amazon has one that's 6 inches deeper for the same price - 15'x48" for $199. Includes pump, ladder, ground cloth, and cover. The pump that comes with these pools are junk so it's worth it to upgrade to a better pump for an extra $150 or so.

I ordered this pool you are referring to from Amazon. It was delivered yesterday looking like it was used by Mike Tyson for a sparring partner. This box had more punctures that you would believe. Bottom completely ripped open. Looked like it actually started inside a brown box but that must have been ripped to pieces at some point because the shipping label on a ripped piece of brown cardboard was taped sideways to the pool box. When Amazon ships in product package they put the label directly on the item. I am sure it is all screwed up and not sure I web war to attempt to set it up, but did call Amazon and they processed a returnless return which amazed me for a $200 item. Just know that you are taking a chance having this delivered from Amazon based on my experience...

I'd say that's more of a UPS problem than Amazon problem. I ordered one last week and it came perfectly fine. I've got it set up today and it's perfect! Mine also had some useless thin cardboard wrapped around a small spot which was ripped up, but the pool box itself was fine.

Yes I wasn't necessarily blaming Amazon, just sharing my experience.

Just fill it with a hose, it will add like $30 - $40 to your water bill that month
