Hello, I recently moved into a new house with a rather large back yard (like 35,000 sq ft) and the kids talked me into a pool, just wanted to throw together one since it was so late in the season and decided on a Coleman 16x48 AGP. I have a little experience with pools as I had a metal sided AGP a few years ago but storm+tree limb took care of that. I still have all the equipment from that pool just no metal sides, liner or top-rails. I am looking to add the old equipment to the new pool along with a Hayward skimmer a fountain and pvc piping I currently have an intex over the side skimmer. I want to make modifications that are able to move to a larger pool in future as my little ones get bigger.
I did put a little work into initial site setup as I had extra retaining wall bricks and made a nice pad using 3 inches of waste lime and 2 inches of fine sand under the pool. My initial "SLAM" worked out and everything seems to be in control, I look forward to all the helpful advice I have been reading on this site.
I will post some pics of the current bone stock pool as I have read people like pics
