    Intex Easy Set Vs. Intex Ultra Metal Frame

    We currently have an Intex Easy Set 18'x48" pool. It will be 6 years old this summer. We are thinking of going with an Intex Ultra Metal 24'x52". My husband likes to drape his arms over the ring and then just lean against the pool and relax. With the Ultra Metal frame can he still do that without harming the pool? I guess I'm asking if the metal supports can support someone leaning on them? The Easy Set never had a problem with him leaning against the walls.

    Welcome to TFP.

    Yeah leaning against it will be fine. I wouldn't be diving from it but a little leaning is fine.

    Leaning against the wall is no problem. The frame on the Ultra is actually stronger than the Easy-Set. Plus it is easier to assemble. It also looks better in my opinon.
