We currently have a 24 foot 48" AG pool. The pool is buried all but about a foot. I found a slide on Craigslist I wanted - the lady wouldn't sell the slide alone, so I had to buy the entire deal - pool, deck and slide for $400.(great deal in my opinion as the slide retails for around $900. Our pool is 14 years old and the top rails are starting to rust and bend. The pool from Craigslist is 12 x 17 52" oval with 9" wide resin top rails. It is only 1 1/2 years old and in good shape - all parts like new, no rust and no wear. We've since decided that after this season is over, we are going to take the 24' out of the hole and install the smaller oval pool in the hole and add fill dirt. My daughter is practically the only one that swims. I swim with her or sit on the deck and read as she swims. Do you think we will regret downsizing? We have a 3 acres so size isn't an issue. She practically lives in the pool and since we installed the slide on the current pool and deck, she actually uses less of the pool than before. She slides gets out and slides again. This is a big decision since there is such a size difference. Does anyone else have a pool this small and do you enjoy it?
Thanks for your opinions. Val
