We bought an Intex 14' round beginner pool last summer and loved it! It was our first pool and with the help of a great test kit and the BBB method our little pool was crystal clear all summer. Thank you so much troublefreepool.com for the extensive advice on this website.
Since we enjoyed our little pool so much and actually enjoyed taking care of it, we decided to find a 15 x 30 AGP for our next pool. We have decided on that size as it is the largest we can go with in the area we want to put a pool.
We have been searching the internet and researching pools and are feeling overwhelmed. We plan to install it ourselves. My husband is in construction and is an excellent equipment operator. He has all the tools needed to do the dirt work and get the location perfectly level.
What would you recommend as a good brand to go with? We are in north Texas and have not contacted any dealers yet. Would we be better off to purchase on-line since we plan to do the work ourselves?
We have looked the most at the Doughboy brand since we originally intended to bury it but have decided against that as we are pretty much on solid rock here. However Doughboy seem to be much higher in cost to some other brands we have read about online. Is it worth the additional expense? We've also been looking on craigslist for a used pool but nothing in the size we want has appeard.
Looking forword to your input!
