Hello! I currently have an Intex Easy Set 18x48 with a SWG. I want to get an UltraFrame (I think). Toys R Us had the 18x52 for $499, but they don't have it in store, so it would be $200 for shipping. I was looking at Target and they have the 20 x 52 for $699. I have a RedCard that the cost would be $705 shipped.... Aside from cost, what should I look for? I have the Intex SWG that I will use with the new pool. I'm thinking it would be under $1000 for set-up. Getting water delivered is $200 (I have a well). My husband has been thinking about getting a "real" AG pool (My in-laws are 10 minutes away and they just got a 24x52 AG installed). With that pool so close, I think we could be really happy with an Intex. Eventually we might want a more permanent pool. I do think we will want to get a better ladder or stairs. So my questions:
Do you think that is a good deal?
Is there another avenue I should explore (different pool, etc)?
Are there a ton of things I haven't considered (I know there probably are)?
Is the pump that comes with it good enough (Filter Pump Flow Rate Per Hour: 1600.0 Gal.)?
What kind of ladder or stairs would you recommend?
I have a 6y/o and 4y/o. What kinds of safety precautions do you recommend?
I'm sure I will have more questions, but I probably need to browse through the forums and find the answers myself. Anyway, Hi!
