We recently bought a house that had an AGP (that unfortunately the owners sold the day before we viewed the house) so now we have this big bare flat circle in the yard that's just begging for a pool. Plus I've had intex's before and always wanted a more permanent pool.
I really want either a 24' or 27' would love a 30' but that would probably require some amount of grading. 52 or 54 inch wall height. Thinking about a dish out for added depth but not a necessity as the grandkids are still small.
There are no pool dealers in our area of the boondocks that I'm willing to purchase from, they quoted me almost $4000 for a Yorkshire pool (only brand they sell) that I found online for $1000 so I think they are over priced.
All the options online are driving me crazy, I can't decide where to buy from, or even what to buy. I'd love to keep the price in the $1500 to $2000 range if at all possible because Id like a deck. But could spend a lil more if absolutely necessary.
Sorry for the long post, here are my questions has anyone here bought their pool online? Was it a good or bad experience? What sites do you recommend? Is my price range doable? I guess my biggest problem is some of the ridiculous package pricing I'm seeing, the pool itself seems fairly cheap compared to the price of a liner/pump/filter/ladder package add on. So I'm thinking buying everything separate, is that wise?
And lastly, if this isn't the correct forum for these kind of questions, is there another you could direct me to?
Thanks in advance for any & all help/advice/conversation. I'm going crazy and DH doesn't care he just wants a pool doesn't have any preferences for steel/resin or anything else as long as he doesn't have to take it down in the fall lol
