What reviewers didn't like

Unfortunately, it doesn’t include a ladder, ground cloth, or pool cover, but considering it’s only 30 inches high, a ladder probably isn’t necessary.
It comes with a filter pump but does not include ground cloth, pool cover, and ladder. But then again, the pool being only 30 inches high, you may not need one.
The inflatable ring may be prone to leakage
Bear in mind that the inflatable frame is not made to last forever.
A patch kit may be needed for some small pinholes during use.
This Intex pool does not come with any ladder so you need to squish down the rim to step in and out of the pool which spills some water, but the water loss is kept at the minimum with the inflatable rim that returns to its original position to stop further water loss.
Some owners of this model did have trouble piecing together the provided filter.
Not as durable as a steel-frame pool. Included pump needs improvement.
There is no filter pump included.
Tends to leak.
More importantly, the Easy Set Pools are not as durable as the metal frame and ultra frame models. One reason is their liner is thinner so they are more prone to leaks.
Only recommended for areas with level ground
In case of a sloped backyard unlevel pool might collapse
