Purchased my first AG and installed myself (more work than I ever thought ). I purchases a Sharkline from Almont pools. Pool was $2000 cheaper than the same Sharkline pool from the local store. Pool came shipped with motor freight included in price. Came with wide mouth Hayward skimmer. I got the 15x30 52" Escalade which is a steel, buttress free pool but has resin wall holders that sit on the ground and resin trim piece but steel 8" tops. Pool was HEAVY. (This may be a DUH! from those of you who have built them before.) Quality and workmanship was excellent. Instructions fairly clear. Website has install video that was extremely helpful. Did have extra resin parts that I have yet to find out what they are used for?! I didn't go with the 54" Oceanic due to resin tops. I wanted to stay steel. Has something like 40-50 year warranty. Liner came with was plain Jane. Assembled well. Any problem generally came from my lack of experience. Overall I would recommend this pool to anyone. Top notch, 10 out of 10. I was concerned about buying a pool when I didn't know anything about them. The local pool store did have that is how I first found it.
Feel free to ask questions.
