Okay, so here's the deal. I live on a lake but the wife insisted on getting a pool since we have a 3 year old and a 4 month old. With naps taking up boating time, the wife wants to be able to enjoy summer as much as possible. Enter the Intex 14' x 42" Ultra Frame pool. There was a huge sale at Walmart and we were able to grab this pool for under $200. Only problem is, I really know nothing about pools and we don't have a great yard for one since our back yard is a pretty steep hill. What's the best way for me to get this put up? Do you recommend getting an excavator company to come in and smooth out a place for it, or should I try to dig it myself? I plan of building a nice deck to go with it for laying out and whatnot, but I have to figure out how I am going to get the pool set up first. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If need be, I'll gladly post pictures of the process. Also, how far do you suggest putting this from the house? One spot that is available (and the flattest part of my yard) is actually right behind the new addition we have put on. I don't mind it being there but I'd like to have access to my shed garage, but the real problem is I can't build anything within 35' of the road and that's really giving me little room to work with. Any help/ideas would be early appreciated. Thanks!
