no. what comes with the pool is not solar and for when we bought ours it was well worth it b/c it heated the pool to a comfortable temp in a matter of two days.

No the cover a solar cover....you can buy one at a "Pool & Spa" store though. They are relatively cheap...varying from 20-40 dollars depending on the size of your pool

Why will my pool only fill up partway? The water runs out of one side & won't fill to the maximum.

answer 1
most likely due to not being level enough-- i'm here to tell ya by trial and error- 1 to two inches off is all it takes for the weight to build and spontaneously dump the water and then it is a real pain because the water expels and then falls below pump level and air gets in and it stops working- LEVEL is the key! Take time on that step and the pool is so much easier to maintain and less to deal with all summer.

Sounds like your ground is not leveled. Let the water out, then either move the pool to more level ground or make the area level with dirt. Refill the pool and make sure the bottom is flat as possible and the bottom sides are pushed out evenly like they show you in the video. Also, check the dark blue inflatable ring. If it's not aired up properly, it'll make the water come out. Hope this helps.

does the easyset 16 48 pool come with a automatic skimmer wich is hooked up to the filter

There isn't any skimmer, a screen covers the filter inlet. Daily manual skimming is required with the inclued skimming net. Its actually fun to do while in the pool. Plus, the maintenance kit should include a vacuum assembly that connects to your garden hose, vacuuming is only needed once or twice a season, using the right chemicals.

Question

How much does pool package weigh?

I live overseas and am considering having some visitors bring this out to me when they come this summer, but I need to know how much it weighs (is it 50 lbs. or less?) I am guessing it will also be bigger than a standard sized suitcase? If anyone has dimensions and weight from their packaging I'd be interested in finding out. Thanks!

Its definitly over 50 pounds ~ Its appox. 110 pounds which takes two people or a hand cart to move.
I thought Wal-mart was global ~ There isn't one where you are ?
You can try UPS or Fedx, appox. box size is 55 x 75 x 15 inches.

I use the same (tablets and shock) on my 16ft pool. I shock the pool once/week, with a full bag of the HTC from Wal-Mart. If you go by the instructions on the bag, a half-bag should be sufficient...but I can never get the chlorine high enough with half of a bag.

I would make sure to run a slow fill and you should be fine. Before you fill of course try to make sure your pool is free of leaks.

How high is the water level?

My kid is 40" tall and the pool is 42". Is the pool height 42" or is the recommended height of water 42"? I want him to be able to touch the bottom.

The recommended fill height is only to the bottom of the inflated ring, which is about 36". My guess is that at your son's height, he could stand flat-footed and it would be a little over his chin.
