I’ve had 2 12’ pools, a 24’ and my current 15’. So far, the 15 is my favorite. SUPER easy to maintain, clean, cover, uncover.Thanks so much for the input -I will check the carvin starbright out. We are total newbies and in the beginning an 18' pool seemed HUGE to us but are realizing that is kinda small in the grand scheme of things. Haven't even got this one in and I am already having second thoughts about if we should have gone bigger?!? Hubster emphatically states it is plenty big!!
We had 6 of us in it a couple weekends ago, and yes it was crowded. But most the time it’s just 2-3 of us soaking. For exercise, I go to the local lap pool. Though that’s when one of the drawbacks of the TFP method becomes apparent.......non-TFP pools are gross.
