What experts liked
The filter pump has a pump flow rate of 530 gallons per hour. You can fill or drain the pool very quickly.
- Pools And Tubs
This pool has super tough laminated PVC walls. Setting up Intex 12′ x 30″ Metal Frame Pool is very easy, and it’s highly durable also.

Being from the Prism line, it offers a more stylish appearance with a nice inner liner so it looks more appealing than other temporary above ground pools.

What experts didn't like
The pool does not come with a debris cover to keep it clean and the filter pump may have some issues in the long run.
- Pools And Tubs
However, the 530 GPH pump doesn’t prove itself sufficient for the size of this pool. With that pump, you can only use it occasionally, and if you’re looking for regular use, then just upgrade it.
