This pool was delivered to my driveway. All we did was spread out the ground mat that we bought separately on the flattest part of our yard and started assembling. No sand, no digging or leveling. It took us (2 adults) about an hour from start to finish to put together. A huge difference from the old aluminum one I had as a kid, but just as nice. The ladder was a bit rickety so we swapped that out for pool steps. It's been 3 weeks and we couldn't be happier with our purchase.

I really wanted to like this pool, for it looked very nice online, but I am extremely disappointed in the quality. The pump started to fail within a week of setting up the pool. Two months in, the pump completely failed. A replacement pump has been ordered through Polygroup as of today. One positive is that it is covered under warranty. It is estimated to arrive in 7-10 business days after processing. For the price, I expected it to last more than two months with light usage. We were instructed by polygroup to cut the electrical cord and send them a picture. (See below) We were required to take the pump apart to prove that it was the motor. Now the bottom of the pump will not properly reattach and is leaking water. I will not purchase a Summer Waves product again. Again, I stress that I am extremely disappointed. I would never recommend this pool to anyone.
