I recently visited friends in France that owned an oval above ground pool, having always wanted one myself and now having a garden large enough to house one I bit the bullet (so to speak) and started looking for one on a more serious note. So, as you do I started looking at reviews on numerous sites at sizes, shapes, brands e.t.c and it quickly became apparent that doughboy were miles ahead in ranking.
Always looking for a bargain I began traweling ebay, amazon etc and with in a few days a listing on ebay came up for a doughboy Timberline 24 x 12 oval pool complete with 1yr old pump and sand filter skimmer and all accessories, ladder etc the previous owners had accumulated over the time they had the pool set up. dubious of the pools age I contacted the seller asking for up close photographs of the pool and equipment so I could check for rust e.t.c and was pleasantly surprised at how new it all looked- obviously well looked after. I asked a series of questions about the sale reasons for selling etc and with their children now moved out they just had no need for the hassle of running it. so I bid at the very last minute (3 seconds to be presice) and got it for a cheap as chips 186 GBP.
It will need a new liner but thats fine with me.
This being the first pool for me I would be really grateful of any advice you guys can offer me re the install.
Hope you all well? the newbie
