    Bestway Above Ground Costco Pool

    I just bought a Bestway Costco above ground pool. It is the 18 x 12 foot pool with solar water heater and surface skimmer. Any go to posts I should read about cool add ons? I was considering adding a sprinkler...

    Also, The pump will be 60 feet from the closest outside GCFI outlet. I have read people using extension cords but the instructions say not to? I talked with a couple electrical contractors already to give estimates on installing an outlet closer... but I wanted some feedback from the pool guys and gals here!

    Thanks in advance!

    Yea, it comes with a 3 foot cord. And you can't use an extension cord. Because its a permanent pool (or I should say the electrical code thinks its a permanent pool), you have to have a GFCI outlet within 20 feet of it (but no closer than 6) anyway.

    If you dug the trench and roughed in the conduit I suspect the electrical bids would go way down.

    60 feet of electrical cord across your back yard all summer is not something you want anyway.
