Above ground pools are brilliant things to own. Straight out of the box they’re an instant hit with the family, and suddenly you have got friends showing up that you haven’t seen for years. That’s called “ pool pulling power”.
Hey you can’t help but love your new purchase.
We are going to give you some cool suggestions to give your new best friend even more personality and style. There are plenty of cool Intex pool accessories to choose from. Some are practical, some are fun, and some are just flat out ridiculous.
Let’s look at some with you, and get you started “pimping your pool”
BEST ABOVE GROUND INTEX POOL ACCESSORIES
Must Haves and Maybe’s
Intex Deluxe Wall Mount Surface Skimmer
It simply attaches to the filter pump, then routes the surface debris through the strainer basket. It needs a minimum of 800 gph to run effectively, so it’s best suited to medium pools. Helps to catch leaves and other floating debris before the sink to the bottom of the pool.
Handy to run when the pool is unattended. There won’t be any unpleasant surprises lurking it the bottom of the pool when this puppy is running.
Intex Multi-Color LED Pool Fountain
You’re buying a hydroelectric generator with this pool fountain. Yup, that’s right, a hydroelectric generator, that’s what powers the mood lighting LEDs that are fitted into the fountain.
Choose from white, red, blue or green lights to suit your fancy, and no batteries involved.
Not for all pools unfortunately, the fountain only fits the Metal Frame and Ultra ranges. It needs a pump rate of between 1000 to 3000 gph to be at its magnificent best.
Fun for the little ones during the day, and a real show stopper at night.
Intex Auto Pool Cleaner
Simply attached to the inlet connector, it’s ready to drop in the pool and run around for you collecting pool droppings in a flash.
Not suitable for all pools, only those with 1 1/2” fittings and a pump that can flow between 1600 and 3500 gph. An essential above ground Intex pool accessory.
You can’t do without one, and this one is a bargain basement buy.
Intex Automatic Vacuum Cleaner 58948E
Unlike its stable mate this model reverses direction, so it does the whole pool while you sip a long cool one and watch it. Needs a flow rate of 1600 to 4000 gph to get up and running, and 1 1/2” connectors.
This one costs a just a little more, but what the heck, live a little!!!!
Intex Mega Chill, Inflatable Floating Cooler
This indispensable lazy mans pool accessory has 5 built-in cup holders, 2 trays, a built-in cooler that holds beverages and ice, as well as durable handles to tether it where you most need it.
This is for the pool equivalent of the couch potato, in doesn’t get much more indulgent than this. We love it.
Intex Mega Chill II Float Cooler
It includes a removable ice chest which can hold up to a dizzying 72 cans, as well as accompanying ice. The six cup built in holders hardly seem enough to cope with the staggering amount of liquid on board.
A great aide for the serious drinker!! Brilliant for party fun too. Keep the children hydrated all day/week long.
A seriously cool thing.
Intex Maintentance Kit for Above Ground Pools
This is a manual vacuum, so no sipping long cool ones when the pool needs cleaning. This needs manpower to run it. The 110” telescopic handle runs the vacuum head, and you’ve got to push it. No real hardship though.
You get two vacuum heads, vacuum body, filters, brush and skimmer net as well as the aluminium telescopic shaft. You’re going to need a pool with a 800 gph pump to enjoy the bargain of the century though.
Intex pool accessories all bundled for an incredibly low price
Intex Deluxe Pool Ladder with Removable Steps
Users have reported them to be study and well made. Manufactured from coated steel with hi impact plastic rungs. Easy to set up and quick to lay down.
Unless you are going to vault into your pool you’re going to need these. A brilliant price too.
Intex Quick-Fill DC Electric Air Pump
A pretty cool Intex pool accessory, it can be used on any inflatable. It’s small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, and powerful enough to inflate your pool in no time.
It runs from 12 v DC, and ships with a compatible plug for your cars power outlets.
Intex LED Pool Wall Light
Your pool really turns into the garden or patio feature with this cool accessory. Only for use with soft sided pools because it uses a magnet on the outside to keep it in place.
It runs off of a 120v plug and ships with a 23 foot power cord and a 12 volt transformer. Easy to place anywhere inside your pool, and if it should become dislodged it will just float up to the surface for reinstalling.
These Intex people think of everything!!!
