Howdy! Me again
I was searching on Craigslist and found a 8yr old semi-buried 21' Doughboy with pump, sand filter, cover, solar panel, brush and vacuum for $500. We would have to take it down. It appears to be well maintained though I have no contacted the owner yet. I am 98% sure my husband will nay say the idea (which I haven't brought up to him yet) which is kind of why I am here. I would like to come into this debate strong! This is located about 3 hours from where we live.
1) How much time will it take to take down this pool with two people? It seems like it being partially buried would make it more difficult to remove.
2) Will it fit in the back of a Chevy Silverado in one trip? (we also have a rack if that helps)
3) Does this seem like a good deal assuming there is no major hidden damage?
From a time is money standpoint I don't know if it is worth the sweat, drive time, awkwardness of Craigslist interactions, etc. Would I be able to get a decent new setup (liner/ladder/pump/pool) for <2k? Obviously it wouldn't be a Doughboy for that price but something beyond the blue Intex quality, LOL!
