We’ve got a 4′ above-ground splash super pool and it has lasted us over 15 years so far in the hot desert sun. very durable, built well, and easy to set up. you just put the pipes through the sleeve at the top of the liner, set the trusses in place, and stick a hose in it. Took less than 2 hours to set up. They come in all sizes and flavors, but I would say for the money, the metal framed ones with the liners are going to last longer than inflatables.
