    Upgrading to metal side from Intex

    After 4 years the poles on my Intex were starting to look like an old Datsun, i took it down in the fall and had a few spots that had completely rusted through. I am looking for opinions on this pool, the price is right as long as it's not total junk.

    Currently a big sand box with no pool, 18"x54 on order

    Nice size. I would paint the top and bottom galvinized rails, matching the color of the wall with rustoleum spay paint before assembly though. Don't forget to use one of lower wall bolts with a bonding lag.

    You might want to look at having a stainless panel for the openings.
