I hate not having a pool, and really want to get one for the kids and for myself, but we can't spend big money nor do we have the space or the right sort of house to install a pool. Our home is split level, and getting the right equipment into our backyard to install a pool would be basically impossible.
So I'm considering a cheap above ground pool from clark rubber, one with a little filter and big enough that the kids could swim from one side to the other even if it only a couple of meters. I'm not sure about where to put it and how to fence it though. Has anyone done it? Do you have photos? Are you glad you did it or do you regret it? Do you pack it away over winter?
