  1. Bought a summer waves pool and have had it up for about 2 weeks. Kept the receipt to make sure there were no holes in it. 2 weeks and the pump doesn’t work. Now I don’t have the receipt. Will NEVER buy another one

  2. Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!

  3. You have made some decent points there. I checked on the internet for more info about
    the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this web site.

  4. Bought a Summer Waves Elite 14″ x 42. Beyond disappointed due to the fact that as a Canadian we can’t get the part for the vacuum adapter without paying an extra $80 to ship it. Their website says you can get the part with free shipping without adding the fact “except if you are Canadian”. I even called and spoke with customer service who said he could order me the part for free shipping without even asking where I was from first. If there was exceptions you shouldn’t say that without asking. Will never buy another pool from this company again. Its going to take me over a month to get my vacuum part and cost over $100 for a $30 part.

    1. Bought the same pool yesterday. Spent all day assembling and filling with water. 1500 gallons is not a cheap fill. The pool lost over an inch of water overnight. It has a leak. When calling customer service all they said was they would give us 50% off a new pool. Nothing about replacing this one that we haven’t even had a chance to use. Will never purchase anything from this company again. Customer service is non existent and rude to boot.

  5. Summer Waves 10’ x 30” above ground pool is POOR POOR POOR QUALITY, EVEN POORER CUSTOMER SERVICE at their 1-888-919-0070 USA customer service number. Hong Kong shipped the pool with a missing part to where we could not even complete assembly of the pool. Called this customer service number and was told by a customer rep and then her supervisor we needed to email them a clear picture of the receipt, that it would take them up to 2 days to process the receipt and then 7-10 business days (does not include weekends) to get aa shipment of the missing part on it’s way to us. And, the supervisor had no one above her to put me through to. I asked for a Divisional or Regional Manager and she could not provide one. The best they could do to get to anyone higher up is customer service2polygroup.com
    DONT EVEN BUY A POLYGROUP pool product. It will nodoubt be shipped incomplete and of very poor quality materials from Hong Kong. There is absolutely no clear path to timely adequate manufacturer caused problem resolution. They call their customer support response mentioned above as Warranty coverage; how about that for a pool that is incomplete right out of a sealed box. AND, once you open the box they have lots of notices that say DO NOT RETURN THE PRODUCT TO THE STORE. POLYGrouP pool products are worthless and so is their customer support.

  6. Everyone loves it whenever people come together and share opinions.
    Great site, keep it up!
