Intex Prism Frame Pool Reviews

We have covered Metal Frame and Ultra Frame above ground pools from Intex before on this website. In this article, we will discuss Intex Prism Frame above ground swimming pool. The Prism Frame pool set series from Intex is another type of above ground pool, and is a similar product to Metal Frame and Ultra Frame pools, but a greater option for families with less space in their backyard and limited budget, due to its smaller size and rectangular shape. On the other hand, the series has a wider variety of sizes to suit your needs.

Advantages of Prism Frame Pools

Prism Frame pools are less pricey, but do not let that fool you into thinking they are of any less quality. They are sturdy, quick to set up, easily filled and drained and an overall greater option for a limited budget. The ppols have all the trappings present, which were in the Metal Frame pools. They come with a ladder, filter pump, ground cloth and a debris cover. The design is also newer, modern and more convenient. The rectangular shape makes it easy to fit even in a small or congested backyard. The pools are made to hold at least 8 people, so even a relatively large family can enjoy the pool. It will stay erect the entire summer, and can be easily stored when not in use.

Intex 14ft X 42in Ultra Frame Pool Set

Intex 14ft X 42in Ultra Frame Pool Set

This is from the Ultra Frame pool series, which combines the size of the Ultra Frame with the compactness of Prism Frames. It is very wide with a 14 feet wide surface and 42 inch height. The height does make it a bit dangerous for infants, so it is advisable to use it only with kids more than six years old.

Other recognizable features of Intex Above Ground Pools are also present. Such as a cartridge filter pump that incorporates Hydro aeration technology, with 1000 gallon per hour pump flow rate, puncture resistant 3-ply material for construction and laminated PVC sidewalls. The product comes with a ladder, a ground cloth, a debris cover to keep the pool clean and a drain plug. There is also an instructional dvd included with the set. The price is quite high for this one, due to the huge size.

This one also has the same design as the previous one, with smaller dimensions than the Ultra Frame pools for smaller backyards. It is 15 feet wide and 33 inch long, with a round surface.

The material used for the frame is strong, powder-coated steel tubing, which is UV ray resistant and rust resistant, which means it will last for many years without even so much as a dent!

This one has the same 15 feet width, but it stands higher than the previous two. It has a length of 48 inches! A ladder is required, even for the taller individuals to get inside the pool. And the Intex Pool set proves their attention to details, by including a high quality ladder in the set. Also includes ground cloth and debris cover. The materials used for construction are high quality as usual.

The frames have a powder-coated steel tubing and stylish design, and the liners have a puncture-resistant, 3-ply material, which makes the pool super durable and long lasting. The cartridge filter has a pump flow rate of 1,000 gallons per hour, but the pump is not large enough by our estimates for such a large pool. The price is quite high for this product.


Intex 18ft X 48in Prism Frame Pool Set

Intex 18ft X 48in Prism Frame Pool Set

This one is huge! With a width of 18 feet and length of 48 inches, even if your family is quite big you will probably have a huge area of water for everyone to share.

The cartridge pump that comes with this pool has a pump flow rate of 1,500 gallons per hour coupled with the signature Hydro aeration technology that improves the quality of circulation and filtration of water.

All the high quality materials that are used to construct the Intex pools are present, so you can count on it to be durable and long lasting. The set includes ground cloth, ladder and debris cover. The price is higher than the other product due to the size.


Intex 24ft X 52in Prism Frame Pool Set

This is the biggest one in the Intex Prism Frame Pool series, with a width of 24 feet! The height is also 52 inch. You should only consider buying it if you have enough space in your backyard. It also costs quite a lot of money, so consider the size of your budget before buying. As the biggest Prism Pool from Intex, it can hold 12,481 gallons of water, and your entire family. The problem is the pump should be extremely powerful, if you do not want it to take ages to fill.

The cartridge pump that comes with it has a pump flow rate of 2500 gallons per hour. Some might want a more powerful pump to reduce time for filling water; in that case you can buy your pump separately. Other than that, this product has the same great features that makes the Intex pools great. If you have space and budget, you will not regret buying it.


Intex 14′ x 42″ Prism XL Frame Square Pool Set

              I did my bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Mississippi State University. Now, I am a proud father of a beautiful and sweet daughter. And she loves water and pools. I did a lot of research before buying my first pool about 2 summers ago. Planning for a replacement pool soon. My experience with my first pool made me research further and I gained some knowledge in the process. I thought I should create a web site to share my knowledge. So here it is.
