Thanks for the welcomes! We went out today on our first "official" local search. The kids were ready to buy the first one they touched, but thankfully, we didn't (although some of the prices had us thinking otherwise! 36' Artesian w/pump, filter, etc. package for $5300 installed! I was shocked!! They are APSP certified and all that jazz. Are we stupid to have passed that up?) There were a few that seemed incredibly overpriced and some that just tried to sell us on the "package", which we know to avoid! It is exciting but very overwhelming.
Since there are not too many AG pool questions on here, what are the personal recommendations for buying an AG pool? We are going to buy the biggest round we can find that we can afford, but steel walls or aluminum? Resin or steel top rails? Is the stainless steel accessory panel truly necessary? If I need to start a new thread somewhere, just let me know!
Thanks again everyone!
