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

Question

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

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.

Question

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.

I'm not sure on any warranties. Where to buy them...Amazon.com has a number of Intex pumps. I'm not sure on the model numbers...but I believe most are compatible because the reviews usually comment on how the purchaser bought one with a little more power than what came with the pool - and how happy they are because of it.

No - the inflatable ring fills up just like an air mattress. The only time during my second year of owning it that I had to fill it was when the temperature was extremely hot (90 or more) and humid for more than a couple days, then I filled it 2X. The first year, I didn't need to fill after the initial time.

Does the 14" pump work on the 16" pool?

It probably will, but not very well. It would be like having a compact car towing a boat that a truck should be pulling. It can be done, but the car will be hard pressed to do it.

If anything, I would go the other way and use a larger pump. Some things to consider when making this decision is how often will the pool be used, how many people will normally be using it, and how long will the pool be empty between uses? (By empty I mean not having people in the pool, just the water.)

If the pool is going to be used every day and by more than 3 or 4 people, I wouldn't use the smaller pump. You'll find that it won't be able to keep up. If the pool is only going to be used once or twice a week, then the smaller pump might be able to handle it, but just barely.

When is doubt check the manufacture's recommendations. That way if there is a problem you can say that you were.

Short answer: A larger pump would work better.
