There are two main types of outdoor swimming pools: those that are fixed in the ground and those that are “above ground” and can be assembled and taken down in accordance with the seasons. The latter, which are the only ones to which this article is devoted, are the more popular as it can cost a great deal of work and money to maintain a pool during the off-season months. More specifically, this article will deal with the top five pools of that type that are appropriate for the growing family, as rated by Weebly, where they can be bought at super-low prices. It should be realized that sometimes the manufacturers discontinue a product so be sure and check before buying any of these.
1) Intex Easy Set Round Pool Set
At $79.99, or almost $200 off its list price, this is one of the cheapest swimming pools of its kind. It is also one of the easiest to set up. It is available in two sizes, 12′ × 2.5′ and 18′ × 4′, and comes with a filter pump and a DVD that contains the full set of instructions on how to erect, clean and maintain the pool and what safety measures to follow. If you are purchasing your first swimming pool or have small children, this product is just right for you. The Amazon rating for this product is four stars. One buyer invited her grandchildren to come down and swim in her pool. None of them wanted to go back home! Another bought one for her five-year-old great niece and her two-year-old great nephew and they loved it.
2) Intex Family Size Round Metal Frame Pool Set
This pool can be bought at $322 off its list price. It is one of the most durable above-ground pools you can get: Its frame is made of galvanized steel and does not rust easily. It also has a drain plug so that you can empty it, a filter pump, an instructional DVD and enough room for the entire family. The average Amazon rating is four and a half stars. The young children of one customer actually put their pool together themselves, with some help from their fourteen-year-old brother. It is certainly a great thing to have for families with small kids; they really enjoy playing in it.
3) Intex 54979EG Rectangular Ultra Frame Pool
Here is definitely a swimming pool for a large family; it is large enough to accommodate six adults. The Intex 54979EG is both durable and easy to set up and to clean. It also one of the most expensive above-ground pools, though, at $1,332.35. The package includes a 1,600 g sand filter, a ground cloth and pool cover, a deluxe maintenance kit, a ladder and barrier, a DVD and most of all a volleyball set! Playing volleyball in the water is great fun. Setting the pool up is easy and the instructions are self-explanatory. The average Amazon customer rating is four and a half stars and one customer says that his children love the pool.
4) Intex 54481EB Rectangular Ultra Frame Pool
The fourth pool discussed here is also expensive, but not nearly as much so as the previous one; it costs only $800. It too comes with a strong and durable ultra frame and a volleyball set as well as a deluxe main kit, a ground cloth and a cover. The rectangular shape makes this pool great for lap swimming as well as for playing volleyball. Its metal joints and beams join together firmly and are rust-resistant. The average customer rating is four and a half stars. A great addition to this pool, according to one five-star-rating buyer, would be the saltwater pool system that is also available from Intex because that way the negative effects of chlorinated water (e.g. bloodshot eyes and bathing suits that smell of chlorine) can be avoided.
5) Intex 54469EG Metal Pool
Other pools discussed here have durable frames but those of this one are especially so. The pool also comes with a 2000-gallon Saltwater System Combo. It has an Amazon customer rating of four stars.
