I am a former above-ground pool owner in NJ. The pool came with the house, but it was pretty old and only lasted a few summers for us - it ultimately caved in. I will NEVER get another above-ground pool again! They might be "affordable," but they just don't seem very sturdy to me, even the pricier ones. Needless to say, we are looking into inground pool possibilities...but we don't want to spend a ton of money on this.
After doing some research, I have become a HUGE fan of the DIY steel inground pool kits. I believe these kits are likely the very same quality that pool companies use in their 25-30K "pool packages." (Why should we pay a huge "cut" to them?!) We aren't looking to cut corners, but we are looking to save money. We want to make sure the pool is installed correctly, so we would still want a "professional" to do that work. Therefore, I am wondering if any of you may know of any services that would handle such work - basically, I am wondering if there are pool installation services where ONLY labor charges would be paid to them (we would be supplying all of the actual pool materials - the pool kit - to them).
Your help/advice will be appreciated! =)
