Thread: 16 ft Intex Ultra Frame Pool

    16 ft Intex Ultra Frame Pool

    Hey everyone. I'm shopping for an above ground pool and I think I'm set on the 16 ft Intex Ultra Frame. The location it is being installed at is an open area, but there is one section that will only allow for about 16 ft and 1 in of diameter on the ground. I know some pools require more ground clearance than the advertised size of the pool would indicate. I guess my question is... is the 16 foot size fairly accurate? Or do I need to account for extra clearance by getting a smaller pool? 15 ft? 14ft? Thanks for yoir help.

    I believe the instructions indicate you have to allow an extra foot around the pool. I would go with the 15 foot to allow for the clearance.
