Hi guys, I haven't even opened the box yet and I'm glad I found this site!
My wife and I live downstairs from her brother and 4 kids. We share the backyard and all hang out together. This all started with a plastic kiddy pool that broke and 4 sad little faces, yes they melted me into getting another pool. Originally I picked up the Intex 10 x 30 Easy Set, then I saw videos on YouTube of kids leaning on the edges and water constantly pouring out, sooo it went back. I figured some of the adults might like to get in as well so I found a deal on a Intex 12 x 30 Metal Frame. I'm constrained for room to go much wider but I'm wondering if I should go 36" or 42" high instead of 30", especially if the "big kids" want to get in as well?
Here is the ground I'm starting with:
My challenges are gopher holes, red ants and getting it all level! I'm going too start by finding all of the tunnels and filling them in, may need to put a perimeter of gopher wire around the outside, we'll see.
Well, glad to be here and starting out with the right info of the bat, I'm soaking it all in and going thru Pool School, loving it, thanks for existing!
