Hi guys. This looks like a great forum and I hope I can get some help from some of you.
I am a first time pool owner. I originally planned on installing a 18x52" ultra frame pool from intex. After getting the pool and doing some additoinal reading, I realized that I dont want to take my pool down every year and want something that will last longer. I have to return the intex pool (and the saltwater system).
I live in lehigh valley PA and we get some intense winters with snow and very cold temps.
So I was looking for a 21' above ground pool using the same type of system I planned for the intex---sand and saltwater. I tried going local but found the prices for pools online to be literally half of what they were at a pool store.
I have an independent contractor to level my land (its about 12 inch from high point to low) and install the pool so now I just need a pool (along with a salt water filter, ladder, skimmer, etc). I saw someone mentioned family pool fun and I found this pool http://www.familypoolfun.com/shop?categ ... uct=BARB12 which seems pretty reasonable. I am open to any and all advice. I would like to get either a 21 or 24 ft pool. My total budget is about 3000-3200. I have 1250 allotted to the landscaper and the pool installer. Help me out guys !
