Are Ultra XTR parts interchangeable with Ultra frame?

We have a 2017 26’ x 52” Intex ultra frame. We use chlorine with sand filter and live in the mid south. Our frame has begun to rust and while the liner and other parts and equipment are still good we wanted to either replace major parts of the horizontal beams or get a new pool. Intex no longer carries (parts not available) the beams we are looking for and on Amazon eBay they are $40 each yikes! A new 26’ Intex is roughly $2300 (more than we are able to spend right now) on the sites I have perused. After trying Facebook and Craig’s list I wondered if the horizontal beams of the new line would be interchangeable with the ultra frame at $11 each that would be closer to $500. Any input is very much welcome thank you!

I don’t know the answer, but before you shell out any cash I would call Intex directly and ask them. I wouldn’t be surprised if the answer is no, not interchangeabl.

The answer is no. I just sat on hold for an hour to speak to Intex about the same size pool. I have a 2015 UF 22 x 52 that I only need a liner for. They don’t make them any more. They changed the ultra frame t-joint and leg design in 2018. Believe me, I tried every combination of trying to utilize my frame and not have to buy a new one. This is why the ebay retailers can charge what they do - there are no parts to be found at reasonable prices. Frustrating.
