Bestway Steel Pro Frame Pool Review
This summer spend your leisure hour in a Bestway Steel Pro Frame Pool. Sturdier and longer lasting than the Bestway Fast Set Round Pool; costs a little more. But well worth the price for a pool that will last you more than 2-3 seasons if taken care of properly. There are a few sizes to choose from.

All the pools in the series come with water filter pump and ladder except for the smallest in the series, Bestway 12-Foot by 30-Inch Steel Pro Round Frame Pool Set which does not include a ladder. At only 30 inches tall it is easy to get into the pool without any difficulty. The remaining 3 pools in the Bestway Steel Pro Frame Pool series are all 48 inches high and comes with ladder.The Bestway 12-Foot by 30-Inch Steel Pro Round Frame Pool Set and the Bestway 56087US Steel Pro Frame Pool Set, 12-Feet by 48-Inch are both 12 foot wide pool and only suitable for 3-4 person. The first one in the series at only 30 inches tall is not suitable for swimming: not even for kids. The later at 48 inches high is just comfortable enough for the kids to swim in and some adults. But not much space to move around.
The larger 2 pools in the series, Bestway 15-Foot by 48-Inch Steel Pro Round Frame Pool Set and Bestway 56150US Steel Pro Frame Pool Set, 18-Feet by 48-Inch are both 48 inches high. Both the pools are roomy enough for 6-7 adults to play around at the same.
The pool liner is made of durable, tear resistant heavy-duty PVC and polyester 3-ply side walls. The polyester mesh layer is sandwiches by two layers of heavy gauge PVC. This multi layer liner makes it tear resistant and durable.
The frame is circular, span-in and rust-resistant metal frames, making the installation very easy.
- The ground has to completely level
- Clear the area off the undergrowth and pebble
- Use ground cloth to protect the bottom pool liner
- Use pool cover to keep the water clean
Choosing the Size of your Pool
All the pools are round in shape. Round pools contain more volume of water than a similar looking oval shaped pools. The difference between the 15 feet round pool and the 18 feet round pool is only 3 feet. But the there is a very big difference in the additional volume of water that the 18 feet pool requires; more than 2,000 litters of water more (equivalent to the volume of water of the smaller pools).
The bigger the pool you buy, the more money and time you have to spend to maintain the pool.
If you really want to know what it takes in terms of time and effort to maintain an above ground pool, the Bestway Steel Pro Frame Pool series are very good starter pools and will give the hands on experience. Then you can decide, if you really want to go for the larger and more semi-permanent Splash Pools or maybe even a permanent concrete pool.
If you are looking for larger pools of similar structure and materials then Intex Metal Frame Pool series will be a good choice. They are equally good but come with filter pump and ladder as part of the package. Read more about the Intex Metal Frame Pool.
