    Build in progress

    We’re 6 hours in on building our 18’ saltwater lx...sunburned and shaky-armed...and I have to say this is the worst project ever. Cutting the foam was a nightmare and if I never hear from my brother or nephew again, I’ll know it was due to the miserable pool wall that had them cursing. We are...

    Pool goes up on Saturday!

    I have a giant pallet in my driveway and we’re assembling on Saturday! For those of you who’ve build a pool, how long should I plan on assembly taking? We’ll have 4-5 adults and it’s going on concrete so there’s no ground leveling. It is an 18’ round by 54” deep Saltwater LX.

    Painting resin

    Has anyone ever painted their resin top rails? Thinking of using plastic spray paint matched to the deck color, but not sure how it’ll hold up to water.

    How did you find an installer?

    I'm planning to order a pool from the pool factory, but after looking at the instructions, there is absolutely now way I can build it. There are no above ground pool companies or installers in my area. Has anyone here had luck hiring a handyman or contractor to build a pool? Were they able to do it?

    Liner options

    I'm looking at at 12' round saltwater lx pool as I think the brown colors will look better in my yard than gray/white. I want a unibead liner but my choices are really really limited with 12' round 54" pool. I've scoured the internet and found nothing. Anyone know if there's a way to have a...

    Why so much?

    This is pure whining--but also a bit of genuine questioning! Why are pools so insanely expensive? I want a hole in the ground, perhaps as small as 8x10, 12x10 at very largest. No diving board, no grotto, no volleyball net or spitting statues, no bulky faux-marble hot tub benches and stupid hot...

    Black pool

    I wanted an inground pool, but can't find an interested builder (it's a small job). Anyway, now I'm looking at above ground pools but I really want to find a black one so it will blend in with my yard better. Is anyone here aware of a make/model that comes in black? Also, is there a way to hide...

    Tiny Pool?

    Has anyone built a tiny pool? I'm talking like 10x12 or something. I don't have much space, but I want a place to splash around and cool off with my kids in the courtyard area in front of my house. I already have a hot tub, so I don't want a "swim spa" and I don't want anything particularly...
