    How much my pool cost

    Hi,

    I am thinking to sell my above pool with a reasonable price. I don't know how old the pool is, i bought the house 3 years ago and i don't know when the previous owner installed it.

    Info:

    *30ft above ground (don't know how depth)
    *hayward pool pumps installed last year for $150
    *ladder
    * hayward heater
    * sand filter
    *water slider similar to (http://www.poolcenter.com/pool-slides-i ... rslide.htm )

    The liner is in working condition however there are some patch and there are some bleach spots.

    i am thinking 2k? is this too much?

    Thanks,

    I just paid right under $2400 for a 33'x 52", including the cost of the filter, pump and liner. IMO, $2k is way too much to ask for a used pool, even with the slide.

    If you were to put it on Craig's List for $800 and I had the room and $800... I would snag it up. Used pools go fast and cheap online.

    There is a woman in my area looking to sale her 21' above ground pool for $2,300. It's been on Craig's List for a long time and is 2 years old. I could buy a brand new one, never installed and a lil deck for that amount of money. It's just not worth it!

    Besides, with the fact that you have no idea how old the pool is, dismantling the pool could bring up issues of replacing parts due to age alone. Older pools just aren't worth what they are brand new and it's one reason why ppl turn to Craig's List to take their chances on buying 2nd hand pools for cheap! Would I buy one on CL? Yes but it has to be what I am looking for, the condition of the pool and if the price is right. Anything under $1,000 for that size could be a good deal. I'd look past it if it were advertized for more than $1,000. JMO.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    This is the company on the net that I bought my second pool from. And, most of the time they offer free delivery. And it comes with instructions also.

    I see the link didn't show the price. It was 1700 something new I believe for the pool and liner. You add to add the pump and extras but still not a bad deal.

    You could part it out in pieces and maybe do better than selling it all together. Just depends what people in your area are looking for right now.

    I would guess your pump and ladder and slide individually are worth more than an old Above ground steel walled pool with a patched liner. If someone were to buy your pool, they are going to need to sped at least another $300 getting a liner and other items required to set it up.
