Grab it quick if you're sure this is the one! Last summer was a drag with how hard it was to find pools with everyone stuck home on "suspension" :laughblue:

You know what you're doing. That thing will be up and swimming in no time. (y)

I did, ordered pool and liner! I’ll figure out pump and other stuff soon - I’m betting this summer might be similar. 🤨

I am SO excited for you! LOVE the resin walls!!! What liner did you get?

Pump-You want a 2 speed pump. Don't need a variable speed one and a 1 speed pump will cost more in electricity.

Filter-I love my sand filter due to easy of cleaning.

Shipping details say the driver does not unload the truck for you. Be sure you get a couple of strong people to help unload. Those parts are heavy!

I got this liner. Hoping it looks mosaic-y underwater. Lol

i will definitely be getting a sand filter, @kimkats! Have one now and love it!

@zea3 I paid the extra $39 to have driver take it off of truck for me. I’m not Superman (woman!)

I hadn’t checked in a while to see if the one I wanted was back in stock, and it is! I just ordered. Haven’t decided on pump/filter yet.

Pool weather comes soon around here, and I want to get this thing installed before it gets too hot!
Yay!!!!!! Congrats!! I just ordered my pool from thepoolfactory, also!!!! Looked like most pools were in stock so hopefully there won’t be a repeat of last summer. Yours is amazing and I’m jealous haha

So exciting! That is a pretty pool. My new ABG was just delivered from Pool Warehouse last week! The price has gone up $525 since I ordered on Jan. 27 - it seems like ordering early is a good idea!

I ended up going with the thickest liner pool factory had which was a 40 gauge one I think. It measures right around 20 mil thick I believe. I ignored patterns and just went by cost and thickness. Its a good heavy liner but make sure it's good and hot when you install it.

Right now my pool is under a lot of snow with more coming. We had 31" from one storm and then 6" more and I lost count. Not enjoying it.....

Ive gone from worried to numb at this point. ;)

We all want to know pattern! Lol

I’m in Florida. If it isn’t cloudy, it will warm right up!

Pool will arrive sometime next week!! They’ll call me for date and time.

I‘m setting up appointments for electrician (since I’m moving location to different spot, I want an outlet in that area), ground leveling, (like I said earlier, as God is my witness, I will never do my own leveling again), and I’m looking for installers to quote me.

I haven’t had any time to ponder pumps and filters yet, but until I do, there’s no reason I can’t just hook up my current system, is there? Pool is an 18’ by 54” round, so a bit bigger than current, but the one I have still works fine.

Also haven’t had time to consider a cleaner yet. That is another item on to-do list.

Foam cove, ordered and on way.

Sand, researching that now.

For permit, installer usually files for that, correct?

I HIGHLY recommend the Aquabot Pool Rover Junior! It has been amazing and very affordable. I never thought I’d be able to afford a robot. I used it daily this past summer and it did a great job and I’ll never go back to a non-robot vacuum again lol. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a cleaner!
