We are thinking about purchasing an AGP. We have two picked out. We have several trees that we would like removed first just because they are closer than we would like. We plan to build a deck also. My question is about timing. By the time the trees are removed....and the pool is setup...summer will be over. We live in VA. We can't start the deck until the pool is in place. Should we 1) haves tree removed now 2) purchase pool now but not have it installed until very early spring and then build the deck? Or 2) purchase pool in Jan but not have it installed until very early spring and then build the deck? or 2) purchase the pool and fill it and cover it for winter and start on deck righ afterwards before winter? Would it be cheaper to buy the pool in Jan or now? Rec Warehouse said we could purchase now..and store it on our garage and they would install it next spring. That does make me a bit nervous though. I am fearful of having the pool in boxes in my garage and then not being able to get anyone out there to set it up. Suggestions?
