Hi y'all,
I hate to be a pest, but I have EVEN more questions for the experts here. :bowdown: I've spent quite a few hours on the internet looking at pools, and reading about them until my eyes are crossed! :hammer:

Based on whether our ship comes in or not, here are the pools I have narrowed down to. If we win the lottery, or a distant relative dies, or our oil well comes in.... :whoot:
Sorry for the detail. It helps me to write it all out. :blah:

12 X 24 ft scenario - We have a very narrow yard or concrete R.V. to put it on. (Need to check to see if this meets City Ordinance or not.)

Yard: If we end up taking out a row of rocks embedded in concrete, we might have enough room for a 12 X 24 oval
R.V. Drive: If we build a planter to set pool up on.

So we are looking at the Intex 12 X 24 Ultra frame http://www.target.com/p/Intex-Rectangular-Ultra-Frame-Pool-Set-24-x12-x52/-/A-12383795
or
a A 12' x 24' x 48" Reprieve Oval with added Yardmore buttress brace using a kit from Pool Supply World
http://www.poolsupplyworld.com/pools/reprieve.htm

10 X 22 Narrow Yard Scenario:

We are looking at either, due to a very small yard....and we don't have the money or energy to remove the rocks.

A Wilbar Cameo 10ft x 16ft x 52in Oval from the Pool Factory

Or
A 10 X 19 Crystal Lake 52" Resin Above Ground Pool made by Tranquility pools (supposedly a branch of Wilbar, but I'm not 100% sure). I can only find it on one web site from Family Pool fun
http://www.familypoolfun.com/shop?category=7&product=CL1014
Or
a 10 X 19 X 52 Sharline Heritage RTL Yardmore buttress brace.
http://www.poolfactoryonline.com/pool-supplies/all-products?category=18&product_id=647

Any advice would be great. :lol:
Please let me know if you have any thoughts on these pools or the dealers. :goodjob:
If anything, reading this post might help you fall asleep! No nasty side effects like other sleeping pills! :sleep:

Many thanks, :bowdown:

Great tip. :goodjob:

We can't fit the 16 foot in our backyard, even with the editing of the yard, :cry: but maybe the rectangular one. We are lucky our Hayward pump and filter are still in good shape.

After spending a lot of time with the measuring tape and flour to mark off space, but it looks like the 12 X 24 won't fit anywhere. :cry:
So we are going with the 10 X 19 Heritage or the 9 X 18 Intex Ultra Frame.

Any one heard of the Crystal Lake Resin Pool? :shock:

Thanks again! :)
