It's easy to empty to change the water. My dogs like to jump in there on a hot day. I hope it holds up well, haven't had it very long.
There is a slow leak after we filled in the water. After about an hour, all the water leaked out. Will return the Pet Adobe.
I have purchased the second one of these pools for my pup. The first one lasted a year of weekly use and staying outside all the time here in Florida. I bathe my dog in it winter (adding a lot of buckets of hot water) or summer. She won't jump into it on her own, I have to carry her and lower her into it, once she is in, she lets me wash her without much fuss. I keep a bucket of clean water separate for rinsing off. I highly recommend this pool, it beats going to a store for her bath, much quicker and cheaper. Luv!
