    Newbie from TX

    I'm Phillip and I live in San Antonio. We have a 24'X52" Intex metal frame blue. I've had a 3 of these pools over the last 7 years. A 16', 18 and the current 24'. I've made a lot of mistakes but also learned a lot. My backyard is pretty slanted so I've had pool in a few different spots in the yard. I finally upgraded to the 24' and had my friend use his Bobcat to help me level the pool area. That was fun day.

    The pool area has a small deck, walk-in steps, a Intex brand sprayer, Intex light, TV, satellite radio, tv, misc grills and a large patio.
    I'll post pics soon.
    I found this site while researching pool sprayers/fountains. Looks like I still have a lot to learn so you will see me post from time to time.
