How to Set Up a Sand 'N Sun Easy Set Swimming Pool


The Sand 'N Sun Easy Set swimming pool is just that: easy. If you want to avoid the cost and permanency of an in-ground pool or want to the complication of putting up the metal walls of some higher-priced above-ground pools, an easy set pool is what you need. The Sand 'N Sun pools can be set up in less than an hour and filled in about half a day depending on the size of your pool. If you start setting up your pool in the morning, you could be swimming by late afternoon.

Step 1

Find a level area in your yard where you want to set up your pool. Make sure to remove any rocks, sticks or other debris that could puncture your pool.

Step 2

Unfold the ground cover that came with your pool. Straighten it out in the area you want your pool to be placed. The ground cover will provide added protection for the bottom of your pool.

Step 3

Pick up the Sand 'N Sun Easy Set pool and place it in the center of the ground cover. Do not drag the pool on the ground because you could puncture it. Unfold the pool to make sure it is right-side up on the cover, paying close attention to where the holes for the filter are located. You want to make sure the filter is situated in an area where you can plug in the electrical cord.

Step 4

Inflate the top ring of your pool with an air pump until it is full and close to the air hole.

Step 5

Smooth out the bottom of the pool with your feet and/or hands so there are no wrinkles.

Step 6

Insert the plugs in the connection holes and make sure your drain is plugged tightly.

Step 7

Fill your pool with the water hose. While it is filling with water, check to ensure the pool is still level, and smooth out any wrinkles that may have formed in the bottom.

Step 8

Hook up your filter pump as instructed by your manual after the pool has filled with water to the bottom of the inflated ring. Enjoy your pool.

Tips and Warnings

  • Do not overfill your pool because too much water can collapse the walls of the pool, causing injury and damage.
