    fudgebar - I've been reading your threads, and it seems as though the pools you're considering are on the smaller side. While any size pool is wonderful to have and enjoy, I'm curious to know if you're limited on size due to your backyard size. If space is not an issue, I highly suggest reconsidering the size of your pool. Again, any size pool is going to be totally enjoyable, but I've found that when we first had our hole dug for our 18x37 I was a little overwhelmed thinking that it was a little too large. Now that we have water and I actually see people in the pool, it's amazing how many people can actually swim comfortably at one time. I had 11 kids in the pool the other day playing volleyball, and there was room for more. So, this may be something you'll want to reconsider. If pricing is an issue, I understand, but usually it's not too much more to go larger. Either way, I know you'll love your pool (we all do) - just giving you a little something to consider.

    1Zuggy...thanks for that tip. Its not the money its kind of the space that is limiting me.....

    I drew a basic design of my yard in Home Designer to illustrate where the pool will go and how limited I am with space.
