    Help deciding which Intex pool to get

    Hi all,

    New here and have been researching pools for the past week. I'm stuck on getting an Intex "type" pool, but not sure what size/brand. These are the three that I'm looking at right now. We have 3 kids, age 6-9, and the area the pool take up is not a concern to me. I like the frame on the smaller pool the best and it's Intex brand, but I'm not sure that 42 inches is deep enough as the water level would be less than that. Anyone have any input?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Welcome to TFP Scott

    I would never recommend any of the summer waves pools because of the filter and aquarium pump they come with, most only get 1 year out of the pump and then they want 150 bucks to replace it...

    The intex is a great pool for the price but they are a little more, the biggest thing with a pool is get the biggest and best you can afford because once it's yours you have to deal with taking care of it..

    I found this coleman and it has a better filter/pump, it is still not great but much better than the summer waves and it has a better frame...

    If you can get a pump also this one would be way easier and work much better

    Thanks for the reply! I should have mentioned that I was planning to upgrade the filter to a sand filter from intex. Also, it appears that I messed up on the second link. It should have been this one with a 42 inch height.
