Our New Pool...
After a lot of searching and reading…we decided to find a used AGP in good condition. A friend of ours decided to sell her house and she had a Solex 16x32 pool. Several days later she was moving the steps and ripped a large hole in the liner bottom along the cove area. I will forego the entertaining story of how the leakage seemed benign at first and within a few minutes she had a raging torrent of water exiting the pool! After that...she decided to just sell the pool instead of spending the money to replace the liner and the extensive ground work (...goes back to that raging torrent of water...) In our search for a used pool, we had decided we would install a new liner anyway...regardless of the age.[attachment=2:88is4msn]Pool Install 03.JPG[/attachment:88is4msn]
In any case…she decided to sell the pool. It was 3 years old and everything appeared to be in good condition with the exception of the liner. She paid over 4K for it new and had recently had the pump motor rebuilt (although I never could figure out exactly what was done…). We gathered up 7 friends for the following Saturday morning and within 2 hours everything was photographed, broken down, labeled, loaded on two trailers and ready to transport. An hour later is was all unloaded at our humble abode. We are so blessed to have great friends!
The following two pictures show the pools new home. Just a couple of hours worth of work and Kathy and I will be splashing around like kids. The ground is marked and the initial removal of the sod is shown. [attachment=1:88is4msn]Pool Install 19.JPG[/attachment:88is4msn] [attachment=0:88is4msn]Pool Install 22.JPG[/attachment:88is4msn]
