    Hello from North east Pa

    Hi, I am a mom of 4 who has never had a "family" pool. I had only frequented the town pool in my area, so when we moved here and there was a pool it is completely new territory for me. I do not have any specifications because no information came with it. I do know it is over 20 ft round. I am am looking forward to learning and hopefully making some new friends along the way.

    Thank you
    Above ground approx 20-27 ft round pool. I do not have much information because the pool came with the property when we purchased. We were told it needed a new liner which we did get the first year. it had always lost water up to the skimmer. we used it the first few years then it was winterized and covered for a few. when we opened it and removed the pillows the water was still just at the skimmer where it would always go down to.
