The Intex 18×52 pool is another one of the popular middle-sized above ground pools made by Intex. It is important to take note that this is a circular pool (If you’re looking for a rectangular pool set, look for the Intex 18x52x9 ultra frame pool).
The pool can comfortably accommodate a family of 8-10, with enough space for everyone to play around in. Many reports have also shown that a group of 12 doesn’t feel that crowded at all, either.
The Intex 18×52 pool is made of a strong sturdy structure, is easy to set up and easy to put away.

Intex 18×52 Metal Frame Pool – Important Things To Keep In Mind
- You need to set up the Intext 18×52 Metal Frame pool on level ground.This is VERY VERY important and something you should never overlook (or else you’ll end up doing the setting up again, I kid you not!). This is probably the task that will take the longest time when you set up your pool.
- The saltwater system is a great accessory and should be in every Intex 18 x 52 pool purchase. I have noticed however, that there are some shops who do not include this in the package so make sure the saltwater chlorinator system is part of it.
Buy Intex Metal Frame 18-foot-by-52-inch Round Pool Set
You can buy the Intex 18×52 Metal frame pool at your local shops like Target and Walmart. However, the best value for money I have seen it at is when you buy it online from Amazon.
Many of the online merchants sell through Amazon too so you can get a good comparison of the products as well.
As of time of writing, I have noticed that you can buy Intex 18 x 52 pool at VERY different prices, depending on who you’re buying it from and what accessories are included.
I have noticed that shops who sell this pool at the lowest price are almost always without the saltwater system or charge a hefty price for the shipping.
So make sure you know exactly what you’re getting for the price you’re paying.
Intex 18 x 52 Prices
This is one of the pools which is sold by different companies for very different prices. Online, I have seen the price vary from about $450 to $899.
So when you do buy this pool, make sure you compare prices. And don't forget to factor in the shipping cost. As much as possible get the shipping for free and you'll learn that you'll save a lot by doing this.
Another word of warning, be sure that the set you're buying has all the important accessories needed to set your Intex 18 x 52 pool especially the saltwater system (which I have seen is not included in some packages.)
