Any good dealers for above ground pools?

Looking for good places I can go look at above ground pools....I'm looking for 48" high x 24' diameter preferably.....

I'll prob buy at the end of the year when sales go on, but I would like to look now to see what is out there.....

There's a Pool-O-Rama in Aurora just West of Rte. 59 on Ogden Ave. as well. Most of the people in our subdivision have gotten theirs from them.

I bought a 24' fully equipped pool from Pool - A - Rama last year....

I tried price shopping between American Sale and Pool A Rama to see which was best. It's hard to compare because they both carry different brand names which have different characteristics. I decided to go with Pool-A-Rama because they told a true story. American Sale talked more about why I should not buy from their competition then why I should buy from them.

Where is a local Pool-A-Rama dealer, and can I ask aprox what was the cost?

Did you install it yourself, or did they install it for you? Thanks

The Pool A Rama is on RT59 and Ogden (RT34). Do not even try to install it yourself, it's not worth it.

I bought it last year during the end of the
season so it was on sale (they always are). I think I paid $4000.00. If you want help buying one let me know, you can come over and see mine,

I told ya. You can take the kids over and use our community pool anytime. We are walking distance away and it's just for our subdivision not all of Romeoville so it's usually pretty nice.

Well, I have the deck all planned out, and will start in the next couple weeks, all Cedar of course. My wife wants a pool for our 2 boys, as she really hates going to
the community pools....(no offense to yours at all)

We went looking at American Sale yesterday, and they were around 3k installed.....but I am curious on how much the price will drop for the End of year sales.....I think I remember
free install, and oher perks to get a pool sold. Will also prob do a 10x10 Cedar deck next to the pool as well, as I hate that metal platform that seems to come with most systems.
