    Swimming laps

    How strong is typical above ground pool? Can I swim laps, as in flip and push off the wall to go to the other side? Thanks!

    It shouldn't be a problem. I guess it depends on how hard you push!

    I push off my walls with no problems and the kids do too.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Wow! That's awesome! I've been scared to even brush the walls too hard for fear they would fall over. I had no idea these pools were built so sturdy. I knew it was strong enough to keep the water in, but the force of the water is evenly distributed. Thanks!
