    Shopping for AG pool

    Split by moderator from HERE. Please ask your own questions in your own thread and not hijack other member's threads. You will get advice specifically addressed to you.

    I'm in the market for an above ground pool also. Any recommendations on good, reliable brands and online dealers would be helpful. There are so many choices and I can't tell the difference between the cheaper and more expensive brands. We want an oval 12 by 24 pool (we already leveled part of the yard to fit that size) and we would eventually like to build a deck around it, so I want to find something that will last. Is there any difference in durability between the steel, aluminum and resin materials? Thanks

    Not sure if this helps but an older thread on here has some discussion on oval AG pools.

    Welcome to the forum. Happy Hunting! Best advice I can offer is make sure that's the LARGEST pool you want to go with. Nobody ever wishes for a smaller one.

    Welcome to TFP !
    Just one thing I would like to add is don't skimp on the liner. Get the thickest liner you can. At least 25 mil.
    Don't forget to grab yourself a good test kit. These are the Test Kits we recommend. 😎

    I love my Sharkline and have had it for almost a year. I found a local dealer/installer but if I had not, I would have bought it from Pool Supply Warehouse. They have the best prices.
    Sharkline Reprieve 15x52 (3/14). Still using Intex 2650 Sand Filter with Hayward Power-Flo Matrix 3/4 HP pump (6/15). Solar Cover cut into strips for easy removal, (2) 2*10 Space Saver solar panels. Swim Jet HD Robot (by Aquabot) (3/15). Chlorine Liquidator (4 gal). 4 person hot tub. Hard pipe is the way to go for improved flow! Retired Lil Shark (3/15). Starite Max E Therm 333k BTU Propane Heater w/ 24 gal tank (7/15).
