    Tmonster here, ya'll!

    Hey thanks for this awesome resource. I'm in Texas and a three-year veteran of Intex above-ground pools. Started with a 15'x48" metal frame that we used for two years. The bottom liner just wasn't going to make it a third, so this year we upgraded to a 22' x 52" ultra-frame pool. I learned much the first couple of years from another forum similar to this I think, but I cannot locate it anymore. I am an avid follower of the BBB method and am always looking to educate myself further. With a bigger pool this year, I'm having to reconfigure my chemistry but it should not be a problem. Mainly I'm considering leaving this new behemoth up through the winter and came here snooping after deck/structure ideas for now.
    Love what I've seen so far!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    That is just the kind of size and scale I had in mind. Looks great! I'm hoping to incorporate a very stable ladder or stairs that will accomodate our aging parents as well. They really want to swim with the grandkids.
