            Overview

            The Intex Oval Frame Pool, being one of the only oval above ground pools in the market, is very unique. For the most part, oval or rectangular above ground pools that allow for pool games like volleyball are over 1,000 dollars, but the 10ft x 18ft Intex Oval Frame Pool is much more affordable. The pool also has a hybrid frame supported inflatable construction – allowing the pool to have steel frames and an soft inflatable ring. In line with most other inflatable pools, the Intex Oval Frame Pool is quick and easy to assemble.

            Assembly and Upkeep

            The Intex Oval Frame Pool is easy and can be done in under half an hour. Assembly consists of leveling the ground and clearing it of objects, placing the pool, attaching the frame, and filling it. Before any assembly can be done, the platform that the pool rests on must be completely flat and free of debris.

            The instructions also come with a CD.

            The pool is easy to maintain. You will need to occasionally change out the pump filters, clear the pool of debris, check the structure of the frame, and inspect the sidewalls for punctures. In the fall and winter, take down the pool and store it. 

            Customer Reviews

            The Intex Easy Set pool has received good reviews from customers on Amazon.

            The positive reviews have generally been about the easy setup and reliability of the pool. Overall the larger 20ft x 12ft pool has received slightly better reviews than standard 10ft x 18ft pool model. Negative feedback has been mostly about the inadequacy of the pump or the filter

            Downsides

            • Like most above ground pools, the ground must be completely flat before installation. 
            • Pump and filter are very average
            • The liner may also leak and break if the pool cloth is not placed right, to avoid this make sure there are no sharp objects that may break the pool liner

            Conclusion

            The Intex Oval Frame pool is one of the most unique pools we’ve reviewed. It follows a design that few other pools have. It’s a great affordable alternative to more expensive premium rectangular framed pools, featuring a oval shape and a powdered steel frame.
