Conclusion

Each of the above types of the pool has their own distinct usability, quality, and advantages. For instance, with a maximum water height of 26 inches, the Ocean Reef Pools are for kids only. And they are designed for kids.

The Easy Set Pools are, well, easy to set up. Just inflate the ring top and fill it up with water. Water height for some of these pools is 42 inches, a comfortable for most adults to swim in. The main advantage of these pools is they are easy to setup and easy to disassemble. This is why they are also portable.

The Oval Frame Pools are very similar to Easy Set Pool. The only couple difference is that they are larger and because of their size they need a metal frame to support the structure. They are also very portable after disassembly.

The Metal frame, the Prism Frame, and the Ultra Frame pools are all supported by strong, durable steel frames which are powder coated for rust resistance. The metal frame and the liner materials are better in the Prism Frame pool than in the Metal frame pool and the Ultra frame pools have the best materials in the series. This difference is also reflected in the price also.

All the Intex Above Ground Pools are suitable for 6-year-olds and above. If you are looking for an above ground private pool, Intex above ground pool series is the best place to look for. It has a reasonable price range and clear instruction manual; they also provide home-assistance if you face problems.
