Hey all I stumbled along this forum while I've been doing tons of reading and research. First off I live in west Texas and I have a 4 Year old son almost 5 and me and my wife and we go in to have a new baby boy tomorrow. I have been looking at pools and reading reviews till I am about sick. My backyard is pretty good size but I don't want to take the entire back yard up. Today I made up my mind to go get a 16x48 or 18x48 intex ultra frame pool. Well guess what. no one had it anywhere. not target, academy, sams, target, anyone near me. all I found was a coleman 16x48 but to many bad reviews for me to take that gamble. I did find at Walmart a intex 22x52 it looked nice, but then again I have read allot of bad reviews.
I went to our local pool store leslie pools and they have no intex pools but I look at some of the hard side pools they had up outside and left home to do some more reading. Know I am leaning more towards spend more money and get something better. but I cant find reviews on the hard side pools. What is your guys views on this. I am going to call the pool place probally Tuesday and ask if they install I am scared on making my yard 100 percent level?
whats better round or oval?
and is 18x52 plenty big for my family. what about 15x52 here are some links to things im looking at. Thanks. also if there is something else I need to look at im all ears. Thanks. I do have a buddy that has a in ground pool and is going to teach me all about the chemicals and care I am just looking for the pool for know.
