My family (wife, one year old daughter, and one more on the way) just purchased our first AGP. It is a 15 x 42 metal frame Intex. We purchased it as a "trial pool" to see if we would enjoy having one before we invested thousands of $$$. It's been up for a couple of weeks and so far we love it. The biggest pain has been getting the water clear since the pump/filter that comes with the Intex pools is not enough to handle the task.
I've already decided to make the switch to the BBB method!!
