    Moving can our pool be empty and taken with us 12x36 summer

    We have a 12x26 summer escape metal frame pool we are moving this week. Will the pool make it. A pool store told me it will shrink do to the heat. It is running around 96 here in the late afternoon 60's in the mornings. Hoping to take it with us. Wonder how hard it will be to take apart too.

    It depends on how old it is, if it is quite old there are more likely to be problems. Overall, the odds are fairly good that an above ground pool will survive a move intact.

    Metal expands in heat, not shrink. Sounds like they were trying to sell you a pool.

    Edit: Oops, your pool might not be metal walled. lol

    Absolutely can be moved........that is how they are designed. Just wrap everything up well, or store in large plastic containers.

    It can absolutely be moved. Just make sure to keep all the parts. Pegs and screws in baggies. ect. After you drain, just lay out the liner to dry out. We drain ours and store every year for the past 4 years. Its not very hard at all.

    Yeah, I don't quite get that...These pools are made to be taken down each season. Just be sure the liner is totally dry before you fold it up, keep track of all the pieces, and make sure nothing punctures it in the moving process.
