Product Description

Alpha Above Ground Pools by Cornelius

*Pool shown in picture above is an oval pool

After a long, hot day, what could be more inviting for parents and kids than coming home to your own pool. It's a whole new world of laughter and water-splashed family fun in the comfort of your own yard. And CORNELIUS leads the way with a wide range of affordable above ground pools.

Designed for fun and built to stay that way

Incredible value is built right into our ALPHA above ground pool. Designed with active families in mind, the ALPHA features strength and beauty as an attractive addition to any family's home. The ALPHA boasts a completely integrated construction from the ground up. Three key components form the sturdy backbone of this pool—the wall, frame and sub-frame. We start with a heavy gauge steel wall. Featuring a standard skimmer cut out, it is hot-dip galvanized and given additional weather protection by the application of polyester "Weatherizer" paint coating. An attractive wall pattern is added and then sealed with our resilient "Krystal Kote®" coating, which provides an extra barrier from the elements and pool chemicals. The cognac colored pool frame includes a 6-inch steel ledge and 5-inch steel post, each protected with polyester paint and clear "Krystal Kote®" topcoat. Two-piece injection molded resin caps complete the structure. The sub-frame consists of double-rolled steel tracks joined with large, heavy gauge connectors and oversize hardware.

Do it yourself Installation

If you're handy with a screwdriver, then you can easily assemble your own CORNELIUS pool. We've designed each pool to make installation a problem-free joy—no multi-sized washers or nuts to worry about. Just one large screw type is used to assemble the entire pool and we provide easy to follow instructions.

A size to fit any yard

The ALPHA is available in 48" and 52" depths and in a variety of Round and A-Brace Oval sizes. A wide selection of liners is also available to make your new pool the centerpiece of your back yard.

I notice that your pools don't come with the liner. Why? Who would want a pool with no liner?

A  Answered on 3/8/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

A majority of our customers already have a liner that they may have purchased in advance and just need the pool (structure). If you are purchasing a pool package then a liner is already included. If you are putting a pool package together (other than what we have on our site) or purchasing a pool only, then the liner would need to be purchase separately.
