    Viking Triton or Carmel Owner's - Help


    First time pool owner considering a Viking Triton or Carmel. My wife and I prefer the styling of the Triton....but worry it might be a little small. And the steps on the Carmel seem like they take up a lot of real estate.

    We'd love to hear from owner's of either pool on thier experiences

    Welcome to TFP!!

    If you can tell us the model #s for them, someone here is sure to be familiar with the filters(?) you're talking about.

    Don't own one, but like the styling of the Triton model.

    We have built in steps and a bench in vinyl and the family uses these shallow areas more than we first imagined.

    20x40 free-form IG vinyl, 1hp Hayward superpump, Hayward pro grid DE filter, Raypak heatpump, Goldline Aquarite SWCG, Polaris 280 with booster, and tested using a Taylor K2006.
