We moved into our home 13 years ago. My husband promised me a pool - built-in no less! But we still don't have one. I found on a garage sale on Facebook a Kayak Pool 12 x 24 that is about 29 years old. Everything looks great- no rust, new liner- except the deck is wee bit flexible. Can the wide end of the deck be replaced? The seller is asking only $600! I think it is a good deal, but the husband doesn't. He sees only the need to take it down and put it up again.
She is selling it with the a solar cover, the solar cover reel, a great winter cover (the kind an elephant can stand on for built-ins), all the cleaning supplies and the original filter that purportedly works great.
We went new pool hunting and found a close out 24' round, resin coated steel framing for $3316 plus installation cost of about $1000. I had hoped the sticker shock would entice hi to the used pool, but he thinks the new one a better deal. That cost is without a deck too!
Is the Kayak a good deal? Can we replace the decking at the wide end? I much prefer to pay cash and get new things for the Kayak each year as we need it. $4000 seems like it is just too much- especially in light of no deck.
Any advice would be appreciated.
