A lot of people may live in an area with lots of yard space and in these places the popular step is installing an above ground pool. There are many choices for large above ground pools that are made to fit many people at the same time, and when choosing, sturdiness and durability often come into play.
Fun for the whole family or a large group of friends, the Intex Ultra Frame Pool Set is equipped with all the bells and whistles you need to start the summer off right.
This is one of the most popular large pools by Intex with many benefits that make leisurely swimming and playing even more enjoyable. The Intex Ultra Frame pool is engineered for strength, supported by solid and durable steel frames that are powder-coated to prevent rusting.
The sidewalls are made of Super-ToughTM laminated PVC material so you can worry less about tears, rips, and leaks while doing laps or playing games. Assembling the frame is pretty straightforward thanks to the Easy Lock SystemTM that snaps the frame together without the need of any additional tools, but it’s better if you have several people helping you and perhaps a lubricant of some kind to ensure the frames attach smoothly.
The manufacturer claims that you can be done with installation in 60 minutes (although some claim it takes longer) and a setup and maintenance DVD is included for additional reference. When you need to put away the pool, the drain plug connects to your hose so you can lead the water away from the pool and your house.
The dual suction outlet fittings improve water circulation and filtration so you can swim safely in cleaner water. Because this is a large pool set, there’s many additional accessories included such as a ladder, a ground cloth, a debris cover, a Deluxe pool maintenance kit, and a volleyball set.
