I've recently started to research above ground pools for our yard. I've visited a number of pool dealers on our area, western VA and it appears there are two basic styles....the Fox Pool which is a heavy gauge steel panel design. It appears very strong and built like a tank! The other design is the Doughboy-style which is the lighter gauge metal body inserted into a track at the top and bottom with either steel or plastic uprights. I'm interested in the pros and cons of each style. They all seem to use very similar vinyl liners, pumps, filters, etc.
The Fox pools appear to be very rugged but is that design worth the almost double price? I would appreciate any information and guidance.
