    Which one of these pools would be the better deal?

    Hi y'all,
    I hate to be a pest, but I have EVEN more questions for the experts here. I've spent quite a few hours on the internet looking at pools, and reading about them until my eyes are crossed!

    Based on whether our ship comes in or not, here are the pools I have narrowed down to. If we win the lottery, or a distant relative dies, or our oil well comes in....
    Sorry for the detail. It helps me to write it all out.

    12 X 24 ft scenario - We have a very narrow yard or concrete R.V. to put it on. (Need to check to see if this meets City Ordinance or not.)

    Yard: If we end up taking out a row of rocks embedded in concrete, we might have enough room for a 12 X 24 oval
    R.V. Drive: If we build a planter to set pool up on.

    So we are looking at the Intex 12 X 24 Ultra frame http://www.target.com/p/Intex-Rectan...2/-/A-12383795
    or
    a A 12' x 24' x 48" Reprieve Oval with added Yardmore buttress brace using a kit from Pool Supply World
    http://www.poolsupplyworld.com/pools/reprieve.htm

    10 X 22 Narrow Yard Scenario:

    We are looking at either, due to a very small yard....and we don't have the money or energy to remove the rocks.

    A Wilbar Cameo 10ft x 16ft x 52in Oval from the Pool Factory
    http://www.poolfactoryonline.com/poo...s/cameo-oval-3
    Or
    A 10 X 19 Crystal Lake 52" Resin Above Ground Pool made by Tranquility pools (supposedly a branch of Wilbar, but I'm not 100% sure). I can only find it on one web site from Family Pool fun
    http://www.familypoolfun.com/shop?ca...product=CL1014
    Or
    a 10 X 19 X 52 Sharline Heritage RTL Yardmore buttress brace.

    Any advice would be great.
    Please let me know if you have any thoughts on these pools or the dealers.
    If anything, reading this post might help you fall asleep! No nasty side effects like other sleeping pills!

    Many thanks,

    Well, you might have to do some editing to your yard but:

    ^pool for almost nothing.

    http://www.vminnovations.com/Product...-Pump-Set.html
    ^then get this for less maint.


    total, less than 800$, maybe 1000$ after supplies.

    Great tip.

    We can't fit the 16 foot in our backyard, even with the editing of the yard, but maybe the rectangular one. We are lucky our Hayward pump and filter are still in good shape.

    After spending a lot of time with the measuring tape and flour to mark off space, but it looks like the 12 X 24 won't fit anywhere.
    So we are going with the 10 X 19 Heritage or the 9 X 18 Intex Ultra Frame.

    Any one heard of the Crystal Lake Resin Pool?

    Thanks again!
