Thread: Putting up an AGP sucks, I'm about to drive over it.

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Putting up an AGP sucks, I'm about to drive over it.

    Had everything ready to go to day up to the point I'm putting the liner in, hooking up the shop vac to start sucking air & wrinkles out.

    I noticed that during many hours long process of building the cove against the wall, I somehow knocked the wall out of the U-channel in 2 spots and now it's sitting above it. I need to undo all the work I've done and start over.

    I think I give up. I wish I would have paid someone $500 2 weeks ago and been done with it.

    I also regret building that cove out of sand. I should have just bought that foam stuff, wherever you get it from.

    For sale. 15' pool. Not used. \

    Hah.

    Then I just got a breeze trying to pull the sand away from the lower track and half the pool blew in over on itself.

    Screw this. I'm taking my ball and going home.

    That sucks... have you considered a refreshing drink and a bit of a time-off from pool building for a bit, hopefully a new perspective sometime in the future?

    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.

    Well, my friend up the street is having a pool party for his twins birthday today. Waiting for my wife to get back with the presents so we can head up there.

    I wish the pool store had suggested that foam cove when I bought the pool, I'd probably have water in it already.

    I broke down and paid someone and I'm pretty handy. (oval 24x12). my only regret is not paying someone earlier while the pool sat in the garage for months because I didn't have time to deal with it.

    I'm hands-down a DIY type of guy. Build my own cars, engines, put my own wood floor in, drywall, renovations etc. Figured eh, it's just a pool. Well, a pool is a difficult thing to put up by yourself, that is for sure.

    I too regret not paying a crew to do it, probably would have been done in a day or two I imagine.

    yes, I'm a DIY'r too but a pool needs several hands and it's skills you don't use elsewhere. Leveling and squaring an oval was a pain. Good luck.
