    Suggestion for a Quality ABove Ground Pool

    Hi All.

    My 18 year old AG pool finally collapsed.

    It was a 27'x54" high pool made by Home & Roam (out of business now).

    Can anyone suggest a quality replacement pool that is 27'x54".

    I have a very nice deck that was next tot he pool and I want to be able to re-construct a new pool next to the existing deck.

    Thanks for your help.

    Regards

    Hi doc8404,

    That's a nice looking pool... and huge !

    I've heard some good things about the radiant pools. I'll have to look around for a local dealer in Baltimore.

    Regards.

    Thanks. The problem is you can't buy anything like a roller for the cover

    I have a cover roller already for my 27', so I plan to stay with the 27', plus I want the deck to fit properly.

    The Radiants look to be good pools. They do come in the 27' Round... BUT, they are only 52" high, and I need 54" to match what I had before.

    Radiant's a great pool, nice and solid, and the insulation really helps keep the temp up.

    It might be worth putting a ring of 2" pavers on your existing foundation to bring it up to match your deck.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    It's something I'll consider for sure.

    And put rigid Styrofoam sheets on the pool bottom thick enough to accommodate the extra paver height.
