    Intex ultra 24x52 or coleman 26x52

    The coleman for sure has the dual inlet buying new private sale. Intex I am not sure kmart not in Stock yet. What are pros and cons. And what would most people buy. This is my first pool. Thanks.

    I went with intex because I thought parts would be easier to get. I think I saw some mention of the bestway fittings not being the same size as intex, and since I knew I wanted an intex SWG, I figured it would be easier to get support and find parts if I had all intex components . This was my first pool, and I wanted simple.

    Thanks for reply .I have high iron also. But mine has acid neutralizer . Did you have any issues treating it. I am leaning towards coleman cause I can get it cheap. Just want to figure out all the drawbacks.

    Once we knew it was iron and not algae, it was easy to fix. We built a 5 gallon bucket polyfill filter and had crystal clear water in a few days. It sounds weird, but it was amazing.
