View Full Version : Buying a pool need advice from owners

We are in the process of buy a 18 to 21 foot pool, just so many companies to chose from and spending that much money I would like to know if anyone has one and good or bad of any brand that you have dealt with. Any help would be appreciated.

The only kind we have had any experience with is Doughboy above ground pools. We had and 18 foot one that we bought in 1975 and it lasted ten full years. They have since improved the pools and the warranties have improved along with it. We just put in a 21-foot one and I went in for the first time this past weekend. We're in the process now of putting a dome over it, which we'll cover with clear plastic so the water won't lose heat overnight. In Oregon it cools at nights so much that the water never quite gets warm enough to enjoy.
We decided to use Baquacil instead of clorine --- don't know if it will be more expensive, but I don't deal well with clorine.
I'm not sure if this was much help.

I don't have a pool, but would you like a crazy chick with IC and her beautiful but spirited 4 year old daughter?????

Come on over, but I suggest you wait until the pool is covered. The water was 71 degrees this afternoon. brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I wish I could give you my pool. I enjoyed it for the first couple of years but I haven't even opened it up that last couple of years. If I had more time off from work, I would enjoy it more but on my few days off, I have to spend my time cleaning and shopping so my poor pool goes unswam in. (Is unswam a word?)
