I have never heard of a 12inch pool having a heater.

Is this a Intex Ellipse Frame Pool 12' x 24' x 48". ? something close and has blowup ring at top.

Basically there all the same except for frame like you said.
Keep a better eye on air-ring being full and not having slow air leak, no objects in pool that could pop it, pinch it and do not let kids hang on it. Did it pop at one of the ends of pool?
