Agree or not, rectangular, above ground pools are what many of us love to hang around in. If you agree with the statement and explore what options you have in the market, this post is right for you.
However, there might be a number of brands that produce rectangular pools to put above ground, but if you narrow down your searches to small and rigidly made ones, the choices are even fewer.
But hey, ‘fewer’ doesn’t mean that there is none. We have got a model from our very familiar brand Bestway, and it’s going to check many boxes that you’ve wanted. The in-depth features and benefits are explained in this complete Bestway Steel Pro 102x67x24 Rectangular Above-Ground Pool Review.

Features and Benefits
A strong support panel to cover you up
At the first glance, the #1 selling point of this pool appears to be its frame design. The 3-ply PVC made support bands work as the cherry on the top, which surrounds the entire rectangular pool.
On top of that, the frame is made to be protective from corrosion and rust buildup. In order to do so, there is a protective coating provided throughout the entire frame, and that’s obviously for a good thing to consider.
A pool with structural integrity
The pool material is the center of attention when we talk about durability. To build up this one, Bestway had used a lightweight but strong PVC material.
They call the pool material the ‘Tritech’ material. Behind the fancy name, there are two layers of PVC encase and a dense layer of polyester mesh on top of that. That’s what the strong yet lightweight pool is made of.
Apart from being rigid, it’s also puncture resistant. So, the chance of creating minor or major leaks will be near to zero.
Joints that won’t bend
At this point, the patented joint design of this pool comes in the play. The seal and lock system is a patented lock system to keep the joint connections secure. Any pressure or stress will be hardly able to create bendings or dents on the joints.
An easy to setup installing
To install this pool right in your backyard, you don’t have to end up with calling up the mechanic or handymen. All you need to do is understand how the seal and lock system works in this pool and follow the instructions to set this pool up- that’s all!
Gets ready for 3 people within 10 minutes
We won’t say that this pool is one of the biggest ones that Bestway had ever made. But if you are limited to 2-3 people, then this might be a great option.
Once you are done with setting this pool up, all 3 of you have to wait for just 10 minutes till the pump fills it up. Talking about the pump, there is none in the package. So, you have to spend some extra money to get a filter pump for this pool. And that’s the only additional cost.
608 gallons of water capacity
The capacity of this pool is 608 gallons at a 90% covering rate. That implies us with both merits and demerits. The advantage is, it would take a very quick time span to fill the empty pool up. On the other hand, the disadvantage is, not more than 3 people can fit within the pool.
But being a rectangular shape, it can p[rovide you with ample moving space that round or semi-round pools of similar price range would fail to do.
