    Suggestions on where to buy pool

    Hello Forum,

    I'm looking to purchase an above ground pool, but I'm looking for advice on where to buy.
    Discountpoolkits.com and Doheny.com came up when I searched for pools. Are they reputable?
    I'm looking for a 24'. I have an old Dynamo filter/pump that I inherited from my dad. I was going to add a salt water system.

    If there are other online dealers, please let me know.
    We live in the middle of no where, so online works best.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm about an hour away from you. In fact I'll be passing right through Camden next week on the way to Millers Ferry camping.

    Unfortunately I don't have any advice for you as we bought our pool locally.

    Although I've never bought a pool from Doheny's, I have bought several accessories from them and never had any problems.

    We got it from Spa & Tub in Mobile. I don't necessarily recommend them, but I've never had a problem with them. The only warranty issue I had to deal with them on was the pump and I just took the bad one to them and they gave me a new one.

    Do Intex pools have a good reputation? I've found metal pools with a 25 year warranty. Not sure which way to go.

    A well cared for Intex pool may last 3-4 years before they rust out, if left up year round. But at that price, I don't mind replacing mine every few years. It's pretty cheap recreation.
