- 3-ply PVC support band for extra stability
- Starts at $399.99
This Steel Pro MAX from Bestway earned the spot as our top pick because it blends a reasonable price, durable design and plenty of space. This above-ground pool includes a DuraPlus™ liner wall, which uses fade and tear-resistant material, but it also features a 3-ply PVC band that wraps around the pool to provide an additional layer of reinforcement.
The pool's oval frame is manufactured from steel with Seal & Lock System T-connectors to make it easy to assemble. And because it uses a pin-clip design, you won't need any tools to assemble your pool.
While the exterior of the pool is a fairly basic white on Amazon, you can get it with a stone-like finish from Bestway or Walmart. In either case, the interior features a prismatic stone design.
On top of all of this, you'll get a cartridge-based pool filter, along with a ladder and cover, with this Bestway pool. That way, you can enjoy this pool long-term while keeping it protected and keeping your water clear.
- Safe for kids of all ages (with adult supervision)
- Seal & Lock System for frame joints to prevent bends and leaks
- Filter pump, ladder and cover included
- Warranty of only 90 days for the liner
- Relatively boring exterior design on Amazon
- Filter uses a cartridge rather than sand, which some people prefer
