Here on the Eastern Shore, there’s no shortage of places to go swimming. There’s the bay, the ocean, and more creeks and ponds than I can count. While I love going to the beach and hanging around bonfires at the creek, I don’t want to get in those waters. Not only does the soft/marshy feel of the bottom give me the creeps, but traumatic memories involving fish sucking on my toes still haunt me. And I don’t even want to think about the beach because as much as I love it, I don’t want to meet a shark face to face. I’m a little too paranoid about that.
It’s always tempting to jump in when it’s hot and unbearable outside, but I remember I have this excellent new Intex Prism Frame Pool (provided for review purposes) just waiting there at home. I have to tell you about this pool. First, it’s a huge 15’ x 48” pool that my brother and I got set up and filling in less than an hour (we already had a flat, level spot). Yea, there is some setup required, but I like it better. Don’t get me wrong, Intex has some great quick set pools too, I just prefer the sturdiness of the Prism Frame pool.
Everything you need comes with the Prism Frame Pool Kit
- durable steel tubing for the frame *90-day warranty for pool and accessories
- a liner made with 3-ply, puncture-resistant material
- a 110-120V cartridge filter pump ((and accessories) flow of 1K gallons/hour) for better filtration, circulation, and water clarity *1-year warranty
- a handy ground cover
- a much-welcomed pool cover
- a 300 lb capacity ladder
- easy to follow instructions
The Prism Frame Pool is available in multiple sizes. The 15’ x 48” (4,440-gallon water capacity) is the ideal fit for us. It holds 7 of us comfortably, probably more if we’re not all trying to swim around. It’s perfect for water volleyball and just cooling off. It’s not even summer, and the pool has already gotten a TON of use! I can’t wait to start on the backyard oasis with this pool at the center of everything! *Keep an eye out for that project!*
Before I forget, check out the liner. You know how most pools have the same dull blue liner? The Prism Frame Pool has an updated liner that looks so much better than that tired blue pool liner.
The only thing I’m not entirely thrilled with is the pump. It does its job so far, but I think when there’s more traffic in and out I’m going to switch to a sand filter pump. Just for that extra clean feeling, lol. For now, the included pump is doing a good job at keeping the water clear (just one shock treatment in the month we’ve had it up.)
There are so many fun times to be had, and I can’t wait to share them with you! Be on the lookout for more ways to enjoy the pool this summer and don’t forget to check out Intex and all of their amazing pools.
