I have been hanging around for almost a year now and over the last three years have moved from an 8' Intex pool with a blow up ring to a 12' Intex pool with metal supports which we used for two years. This year the grandchildren are 8 and 5 1/2 and I wanted a bigger pool. Found one on Craigslist last fall and bought it. The newer filter and pump were worth about what I paid for the whole kit and caboodle. Took it down and found several problems that I worked over the winter and spring to resolve. Basicall keep the pump and filter, hoses and poles and assorted misc stuff., steel wall and framing, albeit, I bought new feet and bottom rail.
I replaced the overlap liner with a beaded liner, and of course new bead receivers. Also bought a new wide mouth skimmer to replace the one I dropped and cracked! Got one inch foam for the floor and a liner for the inside of the wall as well as cove molding. And a bunch of other things, naturally! But you don't want to hear about that, you want pictures of the build!!
OKAY. Here goes. Scouting out the right location in March.
I'm thinking right out about there should be good!
Weather is improving and you can see where the 12' pool sat last year.
I've got the location finally figured out, the building permit in hand and starting to find the low spot.
Not too close, not too far away from the house.
