    21x41 above ground with deep end owner build thread

    Here in Hunterdon County NJ we have long set-backs and strict rules for in-ground pools and almost none for AGP! You can legally place them right on top of your septic field! Of course we did not. Out deck edge is set back per code which is why it's not a "wrap around."

    Hello From New Jersey, get quotes and here to learn

    I'm in Central NJ and originally wanted a smaller in-ground gunite pool. The costs plus landscaping totaled over $100,000, but some of that was due to the slope of our land. We spoke to three experienced builders and all three had radically different ideas, lol. In the end due to our septic...

    21x41 above ground with deep end owner build thread

    Last year I had a large Doughboy AGP installed behind my house and I have a sloped back yard as well. That slope could be a major issue. I had to dig into the slope as trucking in tons of dirt to build a platform was too expensive. Talk to your code enforcement official before you start to...

    How do I plumb 1.5" pvc to my skimmer and return??

    Doughboy makes a hard plastic adapter kit for their skimmers and returns, as well as the kit mentioned above. The skimmer part glues on and the return part screws on replacing the part that the flex hose connects to. It's made for 1.5" and I have a new question on this site regarding mixing 1.5"...

    Mixing 1.5" and 2" PVC - what are the issues?

    I have a large 41’X’21’ one year old Doughboy Saratoga AGP and have purchased their "Hard Plumb Skimmer Adapter Kit" as I am also adding a Jandy JXI400p heater this year. The adapter kit includes pieces for the return as well and allows for 1.5" PVC pipe to be easily connected to the skimmer...
