The best pools for summer cottages – rating of 2023



  •  Summer is coming, which means it's time to decide which pool is best for giving. Its purchase solves many problems – from overheating of children and adults to the need to waste time and gasoline for a trip to the river, where the water is not too clean, and there are already a lot of people who want to dip their hot bodies.

  •  I present to you the rating of pools in 2023, compiled based on the ratio of price, equipment and reviews. The review includes both inflatable and frame models.

How to choose a frame or a good inflatable pool for a summer residence and a private house

  •  The first question you need to ask before buying a pool is where will the water drain to? If in a ditch, reservoir or other suitable "storage", then you can choose a pool with a volume of 4000 liters or more. Otherwise, it is better to choose a small pool of 2-3 thousand liters.

  •  According to GOST, the allowable depth by age is:

  • up to 7 years – up to 0,6 m,
  • 7 – 10 years – up to 0,8 m,
  • 10 – 14 years – up to 1 m,
  • from 14 years old – 1,2 – 1,4 m.

  •  For a child swimming, it is best to choose a round-shaped pool – without sharp corners.

  •  Inflatable pools are inexpensive, can be equipped with additional amenities like an inflatable slide and sprinkler, and are convenient to take with you on a trip. But the frame ones are stronger, more spacious, and are better suited for teenagers and adults.

Optimal Type frame pool for a summer residence – coated with three-layer PVC or even with a special reinforced PVC coating. They are durable, easy to install, although they require seasonal storage. If you are too lazy to mess with dismantling the pool for the winter, you can choose a frost-resistant instilled pool.

  •  Pay attention to the package. It is good if a ladder, a cartridge filter, a pump, an awning and a substrate come with the pool. Otherwise, you will have to buy it all yourself.

  •  Typically, inflatable pools are made from one or two layers of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This material does not pass water, withstands temperatures up to 65 degrees, safe for children and adults. But you need to install it on a perfectly flat surface, without pebbles and other sharp objects.

Which pool is better according to reviews: Intex or bestway

  •  Both companies have a lot of both positive and negative reviews from Russian users. They have similar advantages and disadvantages.

  • The first includes an acceptable (even after a rise in price in 2023) price, intelligible instructionsn, ease of installation and good equipment for more expensive models.
  • The disadvantages are frequent blowing off after several months of operation and leaks that have to be fixed with the help of repair kits. However, they often arise due to improper operation, and not through the fault of the manufacturer.

  •  Summing up, which pool company is better depends solely on which pool you like visually, and whether you are satisfied with its price. Otherwise, both Intex and Bestway are similar in characteristics.
