One of the main advantages of Intex pools is that they are quite easy to set up compared to inground or hard-walled above ground pools. The most difficult part of the job is preparing the site. For suggestions on that, see the pages about scribing a circle on your site, clearing grass, creating a level site, whether or not to use a sand base, and the importance of using a ground barrier.
Once you have your site prepared correctly, the pool setup is actually quite simple. With an easy set pool, you & a helper may have the pool ready for water in as little as 20-30 minutes. With a frameset pool, your pool should be ready for water in 45 to 90 minutes.
