    New doughboy pool owner

    I purchased a doughboy 28 ft round above ground pool package and had it installed professionally. I am in the process of building a deck around it. The kids love the pool. I have an inline chlorinator installed but I am using a peristaltic pump to infuse bleach when the filter is running. More pictures to come (if I can get it to work).

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Very nice!

    Maybe next year for us, we've been thinking about building a small deck. I wonder if there is a DIY detailed enough to make it easy for me.

    Excellent, is that composite decking?

    The added portion is composite. Area took a beating with Hurricaine Irene. Pool and deck are intact except no power. Water is cloudy and I expect it to get green the next few days.
