We used a 16' round Intex cheapie with inflatable top ring for the past 4 years, it started springing leaks so last fall we purchased a Sharkline 15' round by 52" deep pool to setup this year. I finally got started, digging everything by hand, and 4 days later finally got the hose it to start filling it !
All was good until we got to approx 8" of water and the liner let go at the bottom seam !!!! I took pictures and sent them to supplier and they are shipping
a new liner at no charge. Should have the old one out today and be ready for the new one to arrive early next week. Later on we are going to extend the deck around the front and to the right side, approx 1/4 of the pool. The solar panels were used last year for the Intex and worked great and will be connected for this one once i get the equipment hooked up and hard piped.
