1. The explainer of at-Tahaawiyyah said, The ahaadeeth reported about the Pool reach the level of mutawaatir, being reported by more than thirty Companions.
Anas ibn Maalik (radiallaahu anhu) reports that Allahs Messenger said, The size of my Pool is like what is between Jerusalem and Sanaa in Yemen and it has drinking cups like the number of stars in the sky. Reported by al-Bukhaaree (Eng. trans. 8/380/no.582), Ahmad and at-Tirmidhee.
Samurah reports that Allahs Messenger said, There will be a Pool for every Prophet. They vie with regards to who has the greater number of people coming to it. I hope from Allah that I will have the greater number. Reported by at-Tirmidhee and others. Shaikh al-Albaanee declared it saheeh in as-Saheehah (no.1589).
As regards the exception quoted for Saalih (alaihis salaam), the narrations about that are not authentic.
