Finally decided to take the plunge into the world of pool ownership, going to start small with an Intex above ground pool, probably the 18ft x 48" or maybe the one slightly bigger, to see if a pool really does fit into our lives before we get a permanent one.
Reading online about installation, it says you must have the ground level and there are various how to's for doing it. What's the recommended way of doing this? Are there companies out there who do this for a few where it might be worth it to hire them as opposed to doing it myself (possibly incorrectly) and ruining the pool permanently? if there are, how much do you think that might cost?
Due to some health issues, I can only work outside in the sun for a few hours before needing a break, so not sure how painful/long leveling ground could be. I think the previous owners of our house had a pool, as there's a 220 plug on a pole in our backyard along one of the fences, assuming for a heavy duty pool filter? but the ground doesn't look totally level by it, and its all grass, which i suppose just means the pool was way in the past perhaps.
I dont know if i'm just overly worried, but i'd hate to buy a fairly decent pool then have it collapse and have to buy a new one. Not the greatest way to enter the realm of pool ownership
