I live in Las Vegas
I just purchased a Asahi/Mighty Sun Midland Braceless Oval 21' x 41' with an expandable liner to 6 1/2 feet.
My plan was to have a professional installer come and set the pool up, including leveling and digging etc.
I have only been able to find one company that says they install above ground pools - J&T pool Assembly.
Originally, they told me they could do the install on this pool. Today I call them to schedule, and they say that no pool installer will ever set up an oval pool with straps as a deep end pool.
So now I am stuck. The pool should be arriving by Friday and I have no idea what I am going to do.
I have read on poolforum.com that it is entirely possible to safely convert straps in an oval pool to accomodate a deep end.
I believe it is hrsdennis from AZ that says he does it frequently, modeling the install process of doughboys, who are the only ones who specifically sell pools to have the expandable option.
I was hoping to be able to contact Dennis, however, I did not find poolforum until after the registration was locked down, so I cannot post there. I also can not view his profile, send a private message- anything. I was hoping to contact him to find out if he knows anyone in my area that does these installs, and if not, if he could provide some guidance on how to do it myself.
I am completely unskilled when it comes to this stuff, so I am freaking out a little about what to do. I never intended to have to install this myself!! At this point if the price wasnt insane i might even be willing to pay for someone to come to Vegas to do it!
Anyway - if anyone can help get me in touch with Dennis, i would really appreciate it. I know there are many people on these boards that are also on poolforum, so I am hoping someone can help!
And - if anyone knows of good installers in the Vegas area, please let me know!
