Hayneedle Intex Easy Set 15 Foot Pool Review and Giveaway

10:24 PM

I figured we should kick of the Swim Into Summer event with a bang and Hayneedle has helped make that possible. Summer has arrived here in Florida and with temperatures already climbing into the 100's, it is important to have a way to cool down from the heat of the sun. Hayneedle sells the Intex Easy Set 15 ft. Round Inflatable Pool through their PoolToySource.com site. It is 42 in. deep and the perfect size for our family to enjoy. With easy setup and simple maintenance instructions, this pool is a great value and would be a great escape from the heat for any family this summer.

{My Take}

I have to admit, I was a little worried about this pool. It didn't seem like it could really live up to the claim that you can set it up in only 30 minutes. I also had doubts about it being sturdy enough to withstand four boys jumping and bouncing around in it for hours at a time. I was willing to give it a go. Anything that will cool us down in this heat is worth a shot in my book.


It arrived from Hayneedle via UPS and the box was in pretty good shape. Did I mention that shipping for swimming pools on the Hayneedle site is FREE right now? That is an amazing deal considering how heavy these suckers are. Again, I was slightly concerned that everything that was supposed to be included was in one single box, along with a 15 ft pool! After opening the box though, Matt and I discovered that everything was there, including really thorough directions. Here is what the pool comes with:
  • Pool
  • Filter pump
  • Ladder
  • Ground cloth
  • Pool cover
  • Maintenance kit

So, after making sure everything was there, I decided to put Matt to work on the setup of the pool. That's what we keep men around for right? He laid out the ground cover, spread the pool out and started to smooth the wrinkles out. After that, he inflated the upper ring and put a few inches of water in the pool and smoothed out the rest of the wrinkles and pumps. Matt started working on putting together the pump and filter and put together that ladder while the rest of the pool was filling up.


Overall, I was really impressed with how simple the pool and accessories were to put up. It really did only take about 30 minutes to setup and then only a few hours to fill up with water. By the next day the kids could get in, but it was still too chilly for me. A few days later, the temperature was perfect and we have been enjoying it everyday since!

A few things to note before purchasing this pool. You can't hang on the side of the pool. Kids can use the side to stabilize themselves, but jumping or laying on the side will cause water to come out. The built in skimmer is great and really helps cut down on the debris floating around and the cover is super easy to put on, even by yourself. If you have cats, you will need to devise a way to keep them from jumping up on the ring, as they can deflate it. We had to do a few days of hose duty to spray the cats away, but they eventually got the idea to stay down. This is a great temporary pool if you are saving up for something more permanent and if taken care of properly, it could potentially last you for many years to come.


{Buy It}

You can buy the Intex Easy Set 15 ft. pool on the Hayneedle site, as well as a wide range of other swimming pool toys and even smaller inflatable pools as well.


* I received an Intex Easy Set 15 ft. Pool for the purpose of review, but was not compensated in any other way for this post. All thoughts expressed here are my own.

  78. I "liked" the Hayneedle pool product page. Favorite memory was getting an "A" in the beginner's swimming course in college. (My roommate was taking her water safely instructors course, and she INSISTED that I learn to actually swim - not just "propel myself in the water.")

  93. I liked and my favorite summer time swimming memory would be when I was a kid and we would go camping. All my aunts and uncles and my grandparents would camp with us. My grandfather and my great uncle would go out in the boat to go fishing early in the morning. All of us kids would go down to the boat launch area and swim in the Mississippi River. We would stick a boat oar in the water where it dropped off and all the kids that couldn't swim couldn't go past that oar! We'd swim all day, and then eventually my grandpa and my great uncle would come in with the boat, arguing as they pulled in about the number of fish they had caught and who had the best one!! All us kids would get out of the water and help bring in the boat!! I'll never forget those days!!

  170. I liked the pool. My favorite swimming memories were the times we spent as a family at a low water bridge in the country near my Uncle's house. We had so much fun. The water was so clear and cold. Sometimes miss being little.
