Just installed my first pool last month (July) and my brother-n-law told me about this site. Great info. Thought I'd stop by and introduce myself. I grew up with an in-ground pool and my wife never had a pool so I got us a above ground 18' round for her birthday. My friend and I put it up in about 2 weekends with the help from a tractor for leveling. I'll take some pics and post soon. I'm in the process of plumbing up my Intex SWG with PVC piping so I'm hoping everything works out for me.
