    Create 6 ft deep end with an expandble pool liner

    Hi,
    I'm currently picking out an agp and liner that would allow me to create a 6 ft deep end. Would any metal frame pool work? I'm on a tight budget and am considering an intex with a newport overlap liner. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Not sure you can do the with the Intex type pools. I've seen it done nicely with the walled pools.

    I don't think that would work, either. How would you attach the liner to the top rail?

    Hello Rose. You definitely can not use an Intex pool to accomplish what you want. You must use a hard sided pool like this...



    Mine is a Sharkline Venture. If you are going with a deep end, you should buy the biggest pool you can afford with an expandable liner. I bought my pool at poolsupplyworld.com.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    A friend bought a used oval pool (steel sided) and made a deep end. It was quite nice. I can't remember how deep he made it.
