Here's what one of our customer's had to say about installing his new above ground pool:

"My children (8,7, & 5 year old) helped me build this pool from start to finish. It was a fun project and we all learned a lot. Obviously the unroll of the pool wall was not done by the children but it was done by all the motivated awesome mothers in my family on Mother’s Day no less. They were all over for a Mother’s Day party and saw the progress and said “you just need to unroll that wall”? So I believed the alcohol kicked in and took over and they all helped unroll that heavy thing." - Patrick from New York
