    Help Buying an above ground pool.

    Hello everyone, this forum has taught me so much and I think I am ready to pull the trigger to buy an above ground pool. Just to give you some info about me. I live in NJ, we are in our mid 30's and we have no children, so it will mostly be us in the pool, with sometimes family coming over. So no crazy roughhousing or anything. So these are the two that I boiled down to. Can anyone give me reviews, dos or donts on the pools and the accessories, or should I start from scratch. Thank you sooo much for any help you can give.

    The only thing I will say is to go as big as you can afford. My husband and I own a 24 ft pool and he absolutely loves the pool. He loves floating and the fact that he doesn't have to do anything to it! I, am not a floater. I am a swimmer. If I could have gone bigger, I would have but due to yard constraints and property lines (my neighbor is great), I don't think she's want part of my pool in her yard. That is my advice for you.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Thanks would love to go larger (originally thought we wanted a 24) but our town ordinance is 20 feet in from each property line, so the pool would be too large. Thanks

    Just make sure you get a 2 speed pump and large filter.
