Re: Above ground pool

Thanks for helpful advice. We got our above ground round pool set up at the end of last summer. We had to get someone to dig out a flat area because our land is sloping, then covered it with sand before putting the pool together. Unfortunately we left it late to dismantle the pool and it got damaged in strong winds. This year we a friend welded the damaged bit of frame and we are up and running. The cover supplied is lightweight and has no chance with the winds here. A bit of a nuisance that there was a tree with blossom not far away!
I read in The Connexion that if you make alterations to the land for an above ground pool, you may be taxed on it. We were hoping to have a wall built to stop the soil behind crumbling, and possibly some decking on a level with the top of the pool, as our son in law would not manage the rickety ladder to get into the pool. Wondering now!
