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
Hayward Swim Pro SW256t Sand Filter with Hayward 1.5 hp single speed motor.
Filter sand included
A BUNCH of "free" stuff like:
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:
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
