Above Ground Pools

Any of you own an above ground pool? What are the pros and cons? Any models that you would recommend? Or any tips on owning one?

As a project manager of an in ground pool company, I indeed do not have an above ground pool.

Thinking of starting up a crew for installing them though. People call us all the time and I hate turning away easy work.

Last time I was at Tablerock (years and years ago) they had parts of the lake that were off-limits due to bacteria in the water from the ridiculous amounts of goose shit from Canadian Geese.

I really hate those birds.

It is extremely easy work. The best way to do it (or the way my company did it) was to also have a deck building crew. That way you could offer the owner a total, polished package if that's what they wanted.

Yup. Probably not this year, but the idea is to have two installation crews for replacement liners and covers on in ground pools who could also assemble these puppies.

I mean you really only need two guys on each crew. Good money for a day's work to supplement our real business.

Remember the one key to maintaining a pool. If it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down.

What company built the pool?

(It may have been us. We're based in Wichita)

Meh... not really interested in giving our prices out on an internet forum. With the behavior many have shown it's doubtful I'd publicly mention the name of my company.

You're going to spend over 20K though, unless it's really small. If it's really small, I just don't see the point in getting an in-ground pool.

Understand and the over 20k price is what I had figured.

This is a picture of a buddy of mine's set-up, there's a lot you can't see but we built deck around 2/3 of it, and continued the wood rail around the other 1/3 and connected it to the existing two level deck. It's badass and not white trash at all.
