The Best Intex Family Pool Sets

Updated on August 4, 2013

The best pool set

Summer is here. What have you been planning to do during summer? The most suitable activity that you can have it together with your family without spending much money is to have fun in a family pool set. Not only that, it is the best activity to combat the heat during summer. Why need to go far away to a crowded seaside or a public swimming pool when you can have your own private pool? That is why I am writing this review and recommending you the best family pool set for you and your family ... this summer.

The Family Pool Set - 10' x 30 Intex Easy Set Pool

What is more fun than having the whole family members in the cooling private pool during the summer without needed to share with peoples that you do not know. This 10' x 30" Intex Easy Set Pool is the best size for people who having a small yard or those who live far away from beach or the public swimming pool. If you have a small family with 5 people for less, this will be the best choice for you. Many people are worried that it may be difficult to set up and you might be one of them. Why worry? This pool is so easy to set up and you can set it up easily without a single tool. For average people, this pool can be set up and ready for water within 15 minutes! If you still can't figure out how to set it up, you can also look for the set-up and maintenance DVD that is included when you purchase this 10' x 30 Intex Easy Set Pool.

One thing I have to remind everyone of you when you setting up this pool is to make sure you are putting it on a flat and level surface, or else you will see the water filling up unlevely and most importantly is that make sure that there are no sharp things like rocks or sticks underneath the pool. Or else you might have you newly bought private pool leak.

To keep your pool water last longer, there are optional of filter and pump that you can purchase separately if you want. And it worthy that you do not need to add chemicals and it can be clean and clear for the whole summer. The pump that I am recommended is the Intex Krystal Clear Filter Pump and its work fine with Intex A 59900E Filter Cartridge. The pump can cycle up to 1000 plus gallons and very quickly. You can feels like a spray jet on the spa.

Intex Recreation Swim Center Paradise Lagoon Pool, - Suitable for Age 3+

This kids pool with 18 inches wall height will be most suitable for those who have kids as young as 3 years old. This Paradise Lagoon Swim Center, has a unique figure eight shaped and made with a sturdy 14-gauge liner which make it tough and long lasting. It may be dangerous for your 3-year old kids to play in the public pool where they are sometimes deeper than 18 inches and in addition, public pool are made of concrete where it will be really painful if your kids who are still not too familiar with water might knock their head on it. Where as this vinyl-made soft material can prevent all these from happening.

This long and figure eight shaped private swimming pool set can occupy as many as 15 kids at the same time as mentioned by someone who bought it and found it useful, and it will be great that you can use it to launch a Summer Pool Site party for your kids and their friends. They will definitely have a fantastic and happy summer holiday. Your children will be grateful that you are such wonderful parents and will remember this as one of their happy childhood memories! Wouldn't that be great?

If you think that this one is a bit too small for your kids, you may consider getting the Intex Swim Center Family Pool with a slightly bigger size measures 120" x 72" x 22" and comes with various colors and styles.

Additional feature: These Intex Swim Center Family pool came with a convenient drain plug.

If your kids are around 10-years old and above and you have a big family, this one may be what you will need and is more suitable. This is not an inflatable pool but it is hold up by the exterior pipes that formed a metal frame which provides a very sturdy and huge 12 foot and 30 inches depth family pool. When looking for a right place for it, it is just like any other inflatable pool set, and as stressed out by many pool user, you need to have a level site before you start assembly this pool, or else you may having more problem like unlevel water and your pool may slant to one side as your pool starts to filled up. So, a level and even floor is really important. When you have completely filled it up with water, you will be amazed by how sturdy and how solid it is when compared to other similar brands of metal frame pool set.

Many might wonder how are you going to climb into this 30 inches height metal framed pool set. Don't worry! This pool came with a well made and great quality ladder. This pool also come with a lightweight pool cover, a small pool skimmer and vacuum. The vacuum is designed so as to enable the user to rinse off their feet before going in to the pool which can keep the pool cleaner.

      We are on our third Intex pool. The first two were inflatable Easy Set, and when our kids got bigger, we bought a large metal set pool. They are so easy to install that my young children help do it!

      I don't have a pool, being more a river-and-lake kind of person, but Intex is certainly the backyard pool of choice among the families in my neighbourhood. You've done a great job of showing the popular pool sets; these all do look pretty tempting!

      Wow, I would love have a pool. These look beautiful. However, we have a very young child here at this time so we have a very tiny pool that we fill each time.

      I researched these too, but we discovered that we can use our hot tub to cool off and that's what we are doing!
