    Aqua Leader Pool?

    I started a thread and lost it when I opened another window. Oh well. Second try. My pool purchase schedule seems to have a dramatically accelerated itself as I've been pricing some packages online and in person to get an idea for a budget. Welllllllll......I think I'm verge of making a purchase.
    Going into The Great Esacpe I find that they are having an end of season sale with offers multiple upgraded components and 0% interest financing. So I came to the experts to get some opinions.

    Aqua Leader Elegance
    100% resin pool
    24'
    54"
    Hayward Swim Pro SW256t Sand Filter with Hayward 1.5 hp single speed motor.
    Filter sand included
    Beaded liner
    A BUNCH of "free" stuff like:
    Solor cover
    winter cover
    vac and pole
    hayward dv5000 vac robot
    A frame ladder (convertible to deck ladder)
    total install (sand coving and no floor mat)
    Out the Door Price $4620 (0% interest)


    Auqua Leader Athena
    EXACT same as above except:
    52"
    Out the Door Price $4410

    So what say you??? I must mention, the 0% interest is appealing despite paying slightly more than I would with an online store. Problem around here is, not many independent installers really want to mess with online pools. $1,000 is the average install price in these parts. And a free money loan to buy a toy is not a bad way to go...something I can't do with an online purchase. I'll do 36 months at GE.

    Thanks for the feedback

    I thought for sure I would have some sage words of advice.
    No experience with Aqua Leader pools?? No opinions about the packages being offered??
    I'm gong to the store to (likely) make the decision.

    Sorry, new to above ground pools, and I just have a cheap Intex.

    Had Hayward pumps and filters before and would highly recommend.

    Looks like actually usable "free stuff", which is nice.

    Personally I'd choose the first one. This pool will be up for a while, and I'd pay a couple hundred extra for the pool depth. Also, I just looked at the colors of the top ledge, and like the Elegance better.

    Re: Aqua Leader Pool?

    Well happy day....I ordered my pool. Went to Great Escape and ordered a Aqua Leader full resin 27' 54" pool. All Hayward mechanicals with a beaded liner. I upgraded the pump from a 1.5 HP single speed to a Hayward 2 HP, two speed. Comes with install, (sand and blocks included) ladder, maintainance kit and solar and winter covers. Everything, including tax...$4550. Not bad at all.....now I'm proudly able to display my sig below.
    I look forward to becoming a supporting member here, as the forum has helped me learn a number of things. Btw, confirmed.....Great Escape sells 4-1 gallon jugs of liquid chlorine (12.5%) for $10.

    Best,
    Rolo

    Re: Aqua Leader Pool?

    I'm looking at the AquaLeader Line of Pools and was wondering how you are liking the quality?

    I had my mind stuck on the Sharkline Matrix for a while, but am now digging the style of the AquaLeaders. I'm noticing that the Athena is labeled as a 54" pool on Great Escapes website. Which model did you choose?
    Sharkline Matrix 28' x 54" Round or 18' x 33' Oval AGP, Hayward SP15922S Power-Flo Matrix 1.5HP 2-Speed, Hayward SwimClear Cartridge 325 SF Filter, TRANE TR250NA 250,000 BTU NG or Raypak 014939 Pr266Aenx51 266000Btu, Pentair 520593 EasyTouch 4 Function ControlPool w/ IC40 SWG OR Hayward PL-PLUS ProLogic 40,000-Gallon SWG, Valve/Union Combos for shutting off/dismantling equipment, Pool Tool Inline Zinc Anode (for bonding also).
