Hello TFP fans...
Long time listener, first time poster.
Wanted to show our project from last summer. Had a blue pool for 2 seasons which was ok.
3rd season it developed a leak in the top ring, and it had to go.
Spent the winter contemplating a above ground pool. At times, I dont care for the look of a AGP
with a deck all around it. Found the Doughboy line, and figured I could bury it.
Did all the work my self, with the help of a few neighbors, except for the install of the pool.
Took most of the summer, but I am happy with the results.
This summer will be spent getting the landscaping squared away, pool side lighting and music, water spigot
set up. Solar heater will be installed roof top on garage.
Oh, and of course better access to the refrigerator!!
Again, did all work myself minus pool installation. When pool guys came to set up, they told me we did a better job of leveling the pool bottom then their own excavators do!!!!
Saved a TON of cash by doing it, but it did take most of the summer.
For those of you that are thinking about burying a pool, I say GO FOR IT.
Alot to do this summer, and cant wait to get pool open, but the hard part is done, and the fun can begin!!!!!!
If anyone have questions on materials, cost or anything else, please ask away.
