Ease of Use

Setting up the Ultra Frame Pool is not difficult, and you can have your pool ready in as little as 3 hours all by yourself.

The first thing you will do is to level the ground before you install the pool to prevent poor balance or future problems like the pool tilting over, then lay a liner or ground cloth before you assemble your frame and fill the new pool up with water.

The set also includes a setup and maintenance DVD to make it much easier for you to put it together and it comes with a ladder that your kids can use to climb into the pool. It also includes a ground cloth and pool cover to protect your pool from dirt and debris.

How well it works

The pool set has a beautiful, functional design and is a very high-quality product.

The laminated sidewalls are quite tough and feature three layers of material for more durability, longevity, and strength. It has a powder coated steel frame that makes the pool rust resistant so even if you use it for several years, it will still look great.

The problem of draining the pool is more or less solved with the drain plug included; the plug is connected to a garden hose so you can drain water easily from the pool.

The set includes a Ground Fault Interrupter, an innovative technology that shuts off the pump if an electric current is exposed to the water, this makes it incredibly safe for your kids or you to use the pool.

The suction outlet fitted to the pool helps to improve water circulation which makes the water clean, hygienic and clear. The filter pump included in the set is the Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pump, and it has a 2,100 gallon per hour flow rate

How long it lasts

The Ultra Frame pool set is a durable one, and its design and features make it stronger and more long-lasting than most pool sets. You don't have to trash this set after a season; you can always pull it out and use it again or even leave it all year round if you choose.
