I stumbled upon this wonderful website quite by accident today while doing research on our new pool purchase. After enjoying an above ground, out-of-the-box, do-it-yourself pool purchased from a big box retailer last summer, we decided to take it a step further this year. We placed an order today from Amazon.com for the Intex Ultra Frame™ 18 ft x 52 in Pool Set w/ Sand Filter Pump. I will be calling around tomorrow for estimates for installing a concrete pad in our backyard. After a bit more research, I suspect we will add a Gorilla Floor Padding for 18 foot Round Above Ground Swimming Pools to our order. I will be scouring this site for information and advice as I progress throughout our installation. Any guidance, advice, or tips you may offer would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to continuing my pool education on troublefreepool.com. Thank you in advance!
