We worked our butts off this weekend but got the pool up and landscaping done! Its a 24' Vogue pool we bought used. Don't know the model, if anyone has a clue on that, I'd love to know A great upgrade from our 22' intex ultra frame that was destroyed when a tree fell on it a year ago.
We hired out the land excavation to accomodate the larger size. Did it ourselves the first time and even though we have all the needed tools, the ground was not perfect, and we wanted perfect for this pool. After that, the whole project went as smooth as one could hope for We used foam cove and sand for the bottom. Installed a j-hook liner and used a shop vac as instructed. It worked just like all the videos I have seen! Not a single wrinkle anuwhere in the liner. We did burn up our shop vac, but to me the smooth bottom is worth the $150 vac replacement. I still have to cut the skimmer in sometime today and am pretty nervous
Since our lawn is already messed up from the project and needs major repair, we decided to just go ahead and tackle the landscaping right away. I am loving the look of the large river rock! And now we won't have dogs running around the pool chasing splashes making a mud track around the pool PhotoGrid_1472479972737-1.jpg
