Well after a month and a half of the pool installer breaking appointments to level the ground for our 24' intex ultra frame pool I took up a GREAT friends offer to help me do it ourselves. We've had it up for 3 weeks now and like it much more than the smaller 18' version we had the last 2 years. We got the intex due to home owners association rules against permanent pools, even though the 24 is certainly pushing the envelope. We did notice someone on the other end of the sub has an 18' above ground pool sunk half way in and according to them the HOA has not raised any issues with it so we want to upgrade to a real pool. When search to find pools I could sink I found the Radiant Metric, the EZ panel pool and these 3 that seem to be the exact same pool: the sharkline oasis, pool factory king george and (who knows who makes it) Bermuda 54. Other than the price I am drawn to the Metric.
We did talk to the local pool company that originally sold the other pool many years ago, they brought it with them to our neighborhood and that particular model is no longer available. They were trying to sell us the sharkline Navigator but I am hesitant to buy that since everything I have read says do not to use any pool with rolled sheet walls semi inground.
I am open to any suggestions and ideas you knowledgable pool owners here can give me.
thanks in advance.
