I am looking for a 27' round AGP over the internet. I am getting confused by the lack of consistency between the pool brands and model names, which seem to vary site to site. Anyway, I am looking for a better to best quality pool, not a discount grade pool. I like to putz around on the internet, but I have to admit that I am making no progress and getting impatient.
For some reason I have started to focus on the Tahitian model by Cantar (Almontpools.com), the Diamond Star -unknown manufacturer (Nationwidepools and sunenterprises.com) and the Blossom or Opera models by Sharkline (Almontpools.com) or the Riverview by Artesian (Almontpools,com)
I realize that some of these are 54" walls and some are 52" walls, but I am not sure that makes any practical difference, so maybe price-wise I should stick with the 52".
Steel or resin? There seems to be no consensus as to which is better, I live in Wisconsin, so I am leary of resin's ability to withstand subzero temperatures without becoming brittle. But, realistically, I do not expect any pool to last a long time.
What do you recommend?
Is there any generally accepted pecking order for quality between the brands? Any thoughts on the pools mentioned here?
