Now, you might be asking what’s the best Intex pool size to get?

Well, it highly depends on the space you have at home, if you have enough space, then you should maximize it. A bigger pool means more swimming space for you and your family.

Also, most big Intex pool prices don’t have much difference between them, so it’s better to get the one with more depth and bigger dimensions if you could.

Fun Fact

If you’re going to examine the data we presented, you’ll notice that the pools with the highest number of gallons are not oval or rectangular-shaped, but those that are round-shaped.

If we’re going to rank them by the ratio of how many gallons they’re able to accommodate and how much ground space they need, it’ll be round-shaped at first, next is rectangular, and last will be the oval-shaped pools.

  2. Most of the local stores around me didn’t have any stock either, but I tried one of those services off google and it alerted me when I could buy the pool. Got it delivered a few days ago, pretty awesome!

    Tracker I used was https://www.canibuyityet.com. Pretty easy and simple to use. Highly recommend it.

  3. I have a question I have a 18’x10’x42” deep oval Intex inflatable pool and I need to know how many gallons of water can it hold?

    Reply
  4. Want to set up a stay in place lap swim pool in the basement. We are high risk family and my daughter needs this for her occupational therapy. If we get the 30 inch depth rectangular pool, not, gallons, but what height would the water level actually be?

    Reply
  5. I have a older 24×12 easy set. Can I get just the liner. The inflatable ring loses air daily. The rest of it is fine. I have all the other parts I just get tired of pumping air.

    Reply
  6. I am interested in this pool: Intex Ultra XTR Frame Pool Rectangular – 18ft however, I have limited space in my backyard.

    The dimensions are 5.49 length and 2.74 width. Are these the dimensions of just the pool or of the supports as well.

    Is this the ground space that I need or do I need ore with the supports?
