Swimming Pools

Radiant pools are a really nice high end. Two aluminum panels that sandwhich a styrofoam core. Life time, transferrable warranty. Been in business 50 years. You can even put one side in a bank if the yard is not level or put the whole thing in the ground and pour a concrete deck around it. They even have fiberglass steps like a regular inground pool.

    above ground Pool

    Had a customer ask me where to get a swimming pool, they are looking for a 33x18 above ground pool, that they want me to heat with solar. I thought of NAMCO, but I have no idea where to send them, they want a quality pool. We have no local installers since you need to take a boat to get to there house. So I'm looking for some advice from some pool guys, I figured the Wall may have some pool owners, with some good feedback.I really could use the heating project.Any Idea's. Thanks in advance.

    On the internet

    There are tons of sellers on the internet for above ground pool kits. Just search "above ground pools".

    Some years back we owned a house with an inground pool and I used Leslies pool supplies. Bought all my chemicals and supplies mail order from them. They were very reasonable.

    Good luck

    We sell 'em

    Things to look for in above ground pools. Beaded liner, liner snaps in to a track at the top of the wall. Wall cove, triangular foam that goes at the intersection of the wall and floor. Install on a concrete slab about 1 foot bigger than the pool, saves install time, keeps the grass and weeds and moles away. Good sand filtration system 1.5 hp and 19 inches in diameter and name brand, like Hayward, Pentair, Starite. Find a dealer that has been in business for several years...
