It boasts a rust-resistant steel frame and holds up to 6,981 gallons in it’s puncture-resistant lining. The pool comes with a 1,600 gallon per hour Krystal Clear sand filter pump to keep your water clean. You only need to replace the sand every five years. It also comes with a ground cloth, 18-foot cover, 52-inch tall ladder, and a DVD with set-up instructions. $625.
