Its undeniable advantages include easy installation, stable construction – a newly developed unique metal frame and a pleasant design. Relax in our Intex Prism Frame pools. There are entrances in the pool for the connection of sand and cartridge filtration of your choice.
MATERIAL AND QUALITY:
It is made of three-layer PVC SUPER-TOUGH® and has a solid vinyl bottom. This very strong material consists of a polyester backing fabric with strong, double-sided laminated PVC. SUPER-TOUGH® is resistant to salt water and is particularly resistant to abrasion, impact and sunlight. All you have to do is build a structure and fill it with water. Draining is provided by a drain valve.
POOL AND FILTRATION CONNECTION:
The pool is supplied with Intex cartridge filtration with a capacity of 3.785 m3 / hour, including 2 hoses (diameter 32 mm, length 1.5 m), connecting material and passages through the pool wall.
Passages through the wall of the pool with a diameter of 32 mm (5/4 “) are prepared for the connection of the filtration. It is also possible to connect sand filtration to this pool. We recommend Intex sand filtration 4m3 / h.
HYDRO AERATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Intex pool is equipped with “Hydro Aeration Technology” – a special attachment creates bubbles that aerate the water. This is an innovation in the field of water purification in the pool. Mixing air with water causes aeration to oxidize iron and manganese, thus removing impurities in the water. The result is sparkling water in the pool, which looks great!
The construction of this pool series resists rust and corrosion, and comes standard with a powder coating. All edges are rounded to avoid the risk of injury to children. Rough pins made of POM plastic ensure safe locking of the individual parts to each other.

The storable pools (usually round) are the cheapest and most practical to assemble. Ideal for smaller contexts, they adapt to occasional use and can be closed and stored without any particular bulk.
This category includes both inflatable pools (without support), as well as the most resistant ones in soft PVC, with an inflatable joint that acts as a self-support . All these pools are suitable for children. The only downside is that they can easily get punctured if you’re not careful when moving or folding them.
However, in most cases, the material (for example, three-layer laminated PVC) is resistant to both impact and possible abrasion. Thanks to their smaller size and capacity, these pools are the only ones that can be filled and emptied every day . It is better to place them on a flat ground without stones.
On the other hand, pools to be mounted with a rectangular or round frame are a fixed solution compared to the freestanding one, but much more durable and less prone to punctures. Equipped with an external tubular structure to support the edge and the canvas, these pools can also be covered if necessary.
The shape is generally round or rectangular. Naturally, this type of removable pools with mounting included are adapted to continuous use, while in the winter months the advice is always to disassemble them to prevent the cold and bad weather from ruining them.
Rigid raised pools
The pools rigid high are more customizable but also the most expensive. From an aesthetic point of view, they are a refined and elegant solution , perfect for those who have a lot of space and for those who want to make their garden a charming place.
The only disadvantage is that they cannot be disassembled and reassembled because the structure could be damaged, therefore, these are fixed installations that also require some maintenance . Among these are the raised pools in stainless steel and wood .
Materials and design
Generally, freestanding and framed pools use layers of PVC for the tarpaulin and polyester for the internal structure. This combination of materials confers great resistance and durability . The external structure that supports the sheet, on the other hand, is generally made of steel, while the removable corners are more flexible in the event of a collision.
The high PVC pools are one of the cheapest solutions, have a softer texture leaning on a rigid skeleton. Installation is simple and, right in front of the material with which they are built, they guarantee a reasonable duration. Better if the finishes are with high frequency heat sealing.
P ara those looking for a more aesthetically beautiful product, can choose resistant removable steel pools corrosion, easy to assemble and disassemble, elegant and very modern. The base canvas that is used in the lower part also allows you to install it even on land where the base is not perfectly level.
For those seeking an even more luxurious and effective solution, ideally they are the removable pools resistant wood with steel and PVC interior. Its strength is to recreate a corner of relaxation and elegance in any garden.
The best models of wooden covered design removable pools are made with cutting-edge technologies and the highest quality materials treated to resist the sun, bad weather, bacteria and mold.
The most common shape is square and rectangular, but we also find oval or octagonal models , very fascinating.
Very often, then, special finishes and coatings are applied to steel or wood pools to further enhance aesthetics. The most popular materials are decorative panels with a brick, stone or concrete effect.
For removable covered pools , however, the most requested material is always Nordic wood, preferably with anti-insects and treatment to be outdoors. Very interesting are also the rigid raised fiberglass pools that are particularly resistant to water pressure.
An important element to take into account is the space available for installation, which must be without slopes and without objects that could obstruct the structure.
The positive aspect is that in the market the same model is rejected in multiple dimensions precisely to satisfy the needs of all. However, the larger products have very high prices, as the materials must be of higher quality to support a heavy structure and withstand the stresses.
Another aspect that should not be overlooked is the fact that the size of the pool should also be evaluated based on the number of people who will use it . From a deep point of view, in general, freestanding pools are those with the lowest water level to offer safety in case of small children.
The pools rigid and frame suitable for three or four standard sizes are 300 x 200 cm with a depth of 80-130 cm. Some models also reach 500 x 300 cm.
From the point of view of form, the pools rigid and with frames are mostly rectangular allow give some small strokes, although the actual need much larger swimming pools.
The freestanding ones are made with round lines and a shape that only allows you to cool off on hot days, but not swim. In recent years, some well-known brands have started to distribute rectangular inflatable pools that, compared to the round ones of the past, have a more attractive and more functional design.
In addition to the length and width, the parameters to verify are the depth of the pool and the capacity . The last aspect obviously affects consumption and utility bills .
To give an example, a 3 meter by 2 meter 80 cm high pool has a capacity of approximately 4000 liters. Taking into account the capacity of the well, an idea of consumption is given , the frequency with which the pool will be emptied and filled, as well as the necessary maintenance interventions to avoid continuous water changes.
In the cases of raised pools with frames and removable rigid pools where the capacity is considerable and the water cannot be changed very frequently, it is advisable to always keep the pool clean and prevent bacteria and algae from stagnating and causing bad odors. .
There are specific anti-algae products, but the most common disinfectant of all is chlorine , available in powder or tablet form. Once applied, the chlorine concentration in the water should be measured.
The best above-ground pools already include a special kit. If the presence of chlorine is too high, it could cause irritation to the skin and eyes, therefore, it must be reduced with special products, waiting for the situation to be regular before bathing.
A good set of filters and accessories simplifies use and improves cleaning operations.
It is true that accessories can also be purchased separately, but the presence of a complete pool maintenance kit means that we can immediately start using the pool with complete peace of mind.
Among the essential accessories we find, first of all, nets or meshes for ordinary cleaning operations and a tarp to cover the pool .
This is particularly useful if you do not use the pool for a few days, for example in the event of rain, or if you want to prevent it from getting soiled with leaves or infested with insects at night. Additionally, the closed tarp discourages children from using the pool without adult supervision.
The best are those equipped with a moving ladder , especially present in upper-middle-range products. This extra makes diving, swimming and going out more practical, but it is not present in the shallower models.
However, in rigid pools, the fixed ladder is arranged on one or more sides. A practical mat or base canvas should never be lacking to prevent the water that comes out of the pool from ruining the garden lawn.
Better also to verify the presence of a pH meter of the water . If the pH is basic, in fact, incrustations may appear in the internal structure of the pool, if instead it is acidic, the water irritates the skin. In these situations, you can buy concealers that return the pH to normal levels.
Models pools high highest also come with a pool heater . This tool is powered by electricity or solar energy and can heat the water and also spread jets of hot bubbles for a pure relaxation experience even outside of the summer season.
Finally, the presence of clear instructions and videos for assembly is essential , always present in the best removable pools of the best-known brands.
The filtration system and the pumps guarantee the quality of the water and reduce the costs of cleaning and maintenance of the pool. Filters absorb water and any impurities (such as insects and leaves) and are also important for our health.
The filters for removable pools currently on the market are of two types:
Cartridge filter capable of retaining even microscopic particles. This filter is mainly suitable for small and medium swimming pools. Also, it should be rinsed well with water and replaced regularly at least after about 20 days of use.
sand filter with filter pump that manages to retain even 99.9% of the microparticles with a higher water recirculation speed than other filters. This system is bulkier than the cartridge system and is well suited for larger pools. A flocculant is used with the sand filter, which serves to add the smallest particles.
The best removable pools also include an instrument called a skimmer , a unit equipped with a filter that sits flush with the pool surface and constantly cleans.
