Pool Setup Basics
No matter what pool you grab, you need to do a few things. First is a clear flat spot to set it up - make sure it's level! If you need to, grab a shovel and do some digging. Then, unless you want to pack your pool up at night, you need a pool cover. There's a size for each pool so get the one you need. Finally, a ground sheet is handy. You can get them for your pool, or you can just get a big plastic tarp.
