I've had this water table for 4 years. I love that it has: adjustable height, clear basin, petite size, variable depths, and is very light weight. I used it for both sand and water and MUD! But the sand ended up scratching the plastic and making it look cloudy and old. It wasn't that easy to clean, none of them are, but at least this one was small enough I could use the wand in my kitchen sink, and didn't have to bring out the garden hose and scrub bucket. I was really sad when the plug broke and rendered the product just about useless. I think that was my fault; I left it outside in the early fall and I don't think it could take the colder temps. I'm buying a new one today, and expect to get my money's worth out of it too.
