Hi, first post. I am wanting to install a new above ground pool. I am suffering from analysis paralysis. I had an Intex basic frame pool several years ago we loved, but it only lasted about three years before the frame rusted out. We did have a salt water generator on it and loved the low maintenance. I then bought a small easy set pool and rigged the filter and SWG to work on that. We used it last year for my daughter but she is 7. It is still in place, but obviously not going to work long term. We were gone on the weekends just about all summer anyway on boating trips. The pressure is on me to get another pool installed, and I have no idea what to look into. The budget is pretty tight, but I don't want a real cheap pool. Some friends of the family just had a resin ABG pool installed last summer, but it costs about 4K and that is just more than I will spend. I know Sam's has the Pro Series which seems real similar to the Intex. Apparently, the pumps on the entry level pools are minimal at best. The area I have can handle up to a 20 foot pool.
I have searched and read on here so many threads. While I feel like I know a little more, it is more than overwhelming. One thing is for sure, there are some beautiful above ground pools out there. I just learned about the foam bottom. Thought that was pretty neat.
Any advice some of you knowledgeable folks could given out?
