Well we have finally made the plunge! We have been toying with getting an above ground or inground pool for several months. Given that we are in what is hopefully our forever home and considering we probably will not want to care for a pool after our kids (9, 11, 16) have flown the coup we opted for the above ground. We really wanted a nice one so we went with a 16x32 Doughboy Saratoga with a deep end. We will also be adding a pretty nice deck as well and are thrilled with the decision. Also a bit nervous as well since we have only had a community pool, but I quickly realized I don't like other peoples kids and sometimes the adults... LOL
Anyway we are looking at it being in around the second week of May. I am reading all I can and have gotten through a bit of pool school so far. One of our first questions is for those who have had the Baquacil system and also the BBB method. Those are the two we are considering and I am leaning towards the BBB method but we have a friend who as an employee of a company can get us a good bit of Baquacil products Cheap to sometimes free! I really need some feedback on this first so we can get prepared.
We are just north and west of Atlanta and our pool will be getting a good bit of sun and usage, our kids are fish for sure!
We are using a very reputable pool company for the install, so it won't be a DIY job. I will head off to Amazon for a bit and start checking out the test kits.
