    AGP Install??

    We have decision to make soon ...

    We have a deck on the back of the house that is basically **** and needs to be torn down and either rebuilt or a patio put down.

    We have a basic Intex 18 x 48 metal frame pool (not blow up).

    I was thinking why spend the money on the deck and leave the pool in the middle of the yard?

    How about a nice big patio and place the pool on it. It would be on a nice level surface, closer to the house and would get A LOT more usage and I would get my yard back. Also when the time came to move away we could easily take the pool out and leave a nice patio which would allow the house to sell better (homes with pools in this area don't exactly fly off the market).


    I have searched but it appears everyone puts these on ground is it wrong to put it on a patio?

    You can put it on the patio. You might decide to put foam-type insulation under it for a bit of cushion....

    We buy the foam sheets and cover them with plastic. I think the foam is about 3/8" thick. It's the type that's designed to go between walls. (Not attics) It's very affordable.
