    New Pool decision

    I have decided to purchase an AGP. I am sorta new to the pool world, we always had a pool when I was growing up and I would help my parents take care of it. This will be my first pool at my home. I am trying to decide where to order my pool from. I think I am down to Abovegroundpros.com and thepoolfactory.com. I have read the thoughts about pool factory and seen many users were happy using them. I was wondering if anyone had ever used Abovegroundpros. The site has a ton of information and videos to watch and learn from, just wanting to get some thoughts. I am going to go with a 24' round chlorine pool. Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum.

    We seldom give plugs to suppliers but there are a lot of people on this forum that have been very happy with Pool Supplies, Spa Supplies and Parts

    I purchased a cleaner from them and had to return it. I got great customer service and the transaction was not a hassle.

    Well I understand the not plugging suppliers thing. Maybe help me choose between two pools then? https://www.abovegroundpros.com/inde...103-110-detail or https://www.thepoolfactory.com/quest-24x54-round.html both will be upgraded to a better liner, larger pump, etc. Just trying to choose the best pool. They are pretty much the same exact price. Thanks!

    Unless I skimmed over it, I don't see the equipment specifications for the Quest model. It only seems to mention the structure itself. You mind find it helpful to compare the pump and filter sizing to one another since that's a significant issue overall.

    Well the quest information is just on the pool and I customize it on the next page. The quest would have a 23" Hayward Sand Pump with 1.5HP Matrix Pump and a 30Gauge liner. The other would be upgraded to a 22" Hayward Sand filter with 1.5HP matrix pump and a 20Mil Liner.

    From reading on this forum, I would go with the larger filter, more surface area.

    That is what I am leaning towards. The Quest has larger bracing and says it can be installed partially in the ground. Not that I am going to do that but just seems that would mean the pool is stronger. The quest has a 60YR warranty, 5 Full then prorated and the other has a 40YR, 3 full then prorated. Just wanting to make sure I get the best pool for the money you know. Finding this forum, advice and teaching is great! Just looking to some outside looking in advice...
