Intex Pools / PUMPS NO GOOD

1 United States Review updated:

WE R SO TIRED OF MESSING AROUND WITH INTEX. WE R WAITING ON OUR THIRD PUMP . FIRST WORKED FINE FOR A WHILE WE PLUGGED IT IN ONE DAY AND SMOKE CAME OUT CALLED INTEX THEY SENT OUT ANOTHER, THIS LASTED MAYBE 3 TO 4 WKS. CALLED INTEX WE HAD TO SEND IT BACK AND PAY FOR S & H $25.00 NOW ITS BEEN 3 WKS NO PUMP YET . CALLED THEM 10-11-10 THEY SAY THERE OUT OF STOCK DON'T KNOW WHEN THEY WILL BE IN. NOW WE ARE REGRETING BUYING FROM INTEX AND SHOULD HAVE PAID A LITTLE MORE AND WENT TO A REAL SWIMMING POOL BUSINESS. SEEMS LIKE THEY DON'T WON'T TO STAND BEHIND THERE PRODUCTS.

    I happen to be a manager for an above ground swimming pool business and while i am biased we refused to install these pools cause the issues with these style pools 1. the are not safe for small children (depending on the style) some of them a child as young as 2 can climb over the wall a fence should be around either the pool or the yard and if you have small children who cannot swim yet i strongly suggest having one directly around the pool 2. they do not offer adequate filteration which not only can cause a dirty pool but health issues as well such as rashes or bacterial infections 3. if there is not proper grounding of an eletricial outlet to the pool someone could get shocked (in other words) no extension cords to pool filter an electrican is needed to properly handle electric and he should be licensed and insured in the state he is working. 4. because these pools are deemed to be taken up and down yearly they do not need to be inspected for safety which can put anyones family at risk. 5. if the yard is not level where the pool is placed (depending on the style) the pool has the potential of rolling on itself fill of water imagine if someone is in it? 6. Personally a metal wall pool is much safer all around and if you ever have an above ground pool installed no matter what company you choose make sure they are licensed and insured and give you a warrantee on their service sometimes cheaper is not better think about it would you buy a cheap washer/dryer or would you want something that lasts and are not buying again and again

    Intex sucks !! Salt water pump lasted for 11 mos., called them and thay sent another 1, second pump ran for 2hrs and stopped, thay sent me another guess what ?
    It Lasted 3 fkin days and now on and off when it wants, Properly wired by a lic electrician, aet up timer, I give up, wonder why Intex sells for under 200.00 just for the pump(not the filter) and others start at 450.00+, will be on the phone again
