Post an ad on CL that you are looking for a pool for less than $300 and will take it down. That's what we did and ended up with a freebie 24' that was two years old with resin top rails. He showed us the invoice from Watsons for just over $5400. It came with everything and it all worked. We just had to buy a new liner which I think was around $200. We paid a guy with a bobcat $200 to prep the site and did the install ourselves in a weekend. We also scored a set of free wedding cake steps on CL.NWMNMom said:If installing yourself you cannot get a better deal than buying used or online.
