    Choosing between Doughboy (Desert Spring and Radiant)

    Hi Folks,
    I am new to the forum. I was hoping for some input on two types of above ground pools. We are looking at purchasing a 18x34 oval pool, either Doughboy Desert Spring or the more expensive Radiant Metric. We are leaning toward the Desert Spring. What can anyone with knowledge pass along about these. We are finding it hard to justify the extra 6k for the Radiant. Thanks in advance.

    They are both great pools and both rated for burial.

    We were choosing between both as well. Went with the doughboy as we could get a deep end dug with it. We are very pleased with it and love the deep end. I know those radiant pools are really, really nice as well. They look fantastic buried.
