We have had an Intex AGP for the past few years and this year we were gifted a bigger used APG. I believe it is a 15x30 but not too sure yet. I know it will need a new pump and new coping for sure. They said the liner is 2 years old and should last a few more years. We are thinking about putting it partially in ground, but would like some opinions. My husband is a heavy equipment operator and can do the digging. What other aspects should we be warned about before we get in over our heads? Any tips trick and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
