Very helpful when pool problems arise. We only do business with Mike's Pools, and recommend that you give him a try. He also has reasonable prices!

lol !
This must be your first pool since buying a blow up 3 ring one. By all means spend your money where you choose. But when $hit hits the fan and your w-mart pool is having trouble (ph high or low, green water, cloudy water, etc.) you make sure to go right back into wallyworld for advise, assistance, and support. They will spend however long it takes to resolve your pools problems (sarcastic wink wink)
lol!

As far as your comment about pool chemicals...I have one word of guidance "Chlorine".

I'm glad that at this point and time that you are happy with your "w-mart pool" and "chem. package". But the fact of the matter is that at some point in your twenty years of enjoying your pool, you WILL have trouble with your water, pump, filter or something. That's what I am referring to as $hit hitting the fan. And that is when you will be without a paddle when you return to w-mart for guidance. As far as chemicals you can spend as much as you want on them. There are some very expensive non-chlorine based pool chemicals that I would never use. That is why I highly recommend chlorine.

If you researched before buying a pool then you know that the warranties vary greatly. You can rest assured that you get what you pay for in a pool. If what you were shopping for was the cheapest pool you could possibly buy it sounds like that exactly what you purchased. Congratulations on your new pool!

I sincerely hope to hear from you about your new pool in about... four years. Then I feel we could have the beginnings of a real conversation about pools, and all the effort that goes into owning one. But in the mean time, Good Luck!:}

yep, when it's time to close your pool this fall - and then open it back up next summer simply go to walmart and their pool expert will walk you through the details so you do everything correct with your cheap pool, you know the one with the 20 year warranty.

We shopped around before purchasing ours (including Robertsons). We found Mike to have the best prices around. He is very helpful and easy to get in touch with at most any time if you have questions.

years ago did business with Patsy was very satified. Lots of people said bad about her but I knew what I wanted and kept pool in good shape and she helped. Brian was a kid then hope he has learned from him and her.

Have dealt with Mike for years. He is great. Never to busy to answer a question and always available. Tried dealing with Robertsons few years back, was not happy with the outcome. I highly recommend Mike.
