Best Swimming Pools: Bestway 118 x 79 x 26 Inches 871 Gallon Deluxe Splash Frame Kids Swimming Pool
The Bestway 118 x 79 x 26 Inches Deluxe Splash Frame Pool is the perfect backyard above ground pool for families with kids. The low height makes it safe for even the little ones. It's easy to assemble too and only takes about 20 minutes with 2-3 people. This pool is a great size for a few kids at a time and takes up about 9.8 x 6.5 feet in your backyard. It's best suited for a level surface outdoors and fits in more modest yards. Bestway's Deluxe Splash Frame pools are made of a sturdy, rust-resistant galvanized metal frame with a 3-ply polyester mesh inner lining. This pool is durable and has reinforced rope wraps around the bottom of the pool liner that keeps its legs completely stable. It has a flow control valve for easy draining, so you don't have to empty the water right next to the pool. It holds 871 gallons at 90% capacity, or 3,300 liters. Only weighing 43 pounds, it's easy to disassemble and store during the colder months. Enjoy the summer days with your little ones in the Bestway 118 x 79 x 26 Deluxe Splash Frame Pool.
Great pool for the price and for small places! Round pools waste too much space and you can't get deep enough pool for the yard we have. This pool is deep enough and fits much more efficient that any round pool would.Took us only about 30-40 minitues to set it up. To fill with the water, it took us about 3-4 hours. One thing is that the water stays so cold in it (which is great!), but we did add black rubber mat to the bottom of it and it got a bit warmer with the sun.
This is the 3rd Bestway pool I've had in 10 years. They usually last 3 summers before normal wear and tear lead to too many tiny leaks to repair -- maybe not a problem for people who don't have urban raccoons. (BTW: I put TangleFoot -- a sticky substance made for ensuring certain beetles or other creature don't go all the way up a tree -- on the two edges and bottom of the struts. That stopped the raccoons.) My favorite was a little higher than this one because I could "do a lap" -- swim a few (3) strokes, turn around under water, swim a few more strokes. This one is a bit short for that, but if all you want is a kiddie pool for grown-up with martinis after work, you can't beat it. My neighbors and colleagues initially teased me about how ridiculous it is . . . but now ask to come over to use it. It's just as good with a full body long floating device, so hey. You can't beat the price, and it will be lots easier to empty come winter.
This pool is awesome. We decked around it and it looks like a high dollar pool the kids love it all the way up to 8 years
We love this little pool! It is the perfect size. We added a pump so we did not have to empty and refill. It has been a lot of fun for my daughter who is 11 years old and her friends.
Ours was easy to set up it took my 10 year old son & I about 45 minutes to set up. I'm just disappointed because on the corner where the poles stick in ripped. We've only been using for a week.
I bought this pool for my son who is 7. He loves it -All parts are present - none missing. There were a couple rails without labels - but the construction is so intuitive it won't matter. The pool is up and working just fine. One minor issues was the side rails - I could not figure out why they have the holes for a male to female locking button, because the rails that hook to them do not have the male button.. That wasted time as I tried to figure that out (thought maybe I was missing parts) - I guess it's just how they designed them - It did NOT effect the sturdiness of the finished product though that I can tell - More details in the video I'm including. UPDATE: The intex pump that is recommended for this at purchase does work technically (and it works really well to keep the pool "Crystal" clear - I only run it when needed and the filter can be cleaned - so you do NOT have to go out and buy new ones every few weeks as recommended) they do include one adaptor for the upper inside connection that pumps cleaned water into the pool - make sure you use it. The lower one that sucks the water out has no adaptor so that the screen will fit "properly" (fits but not perfectly as it should) but you really don't need that screen anyways - if you want to use it just put the plastic screen part over top the suction will hold it down. I'm going to try and find a proper sized adaptor though as the skimmer I bought (intex) will be more secure connection wise with it.
I used it for a fish pond. I purchased this for 69 dollars a while back. It held the pressure when it over fills from the rain.
