I am interested in a above ground pool for my kids. I have seen a pool called the "TUFF POOL" and wondered if you know anything about them or know anyone that has one and what their experience with them is and quality of them.
Thank you for your time and help.
I have installed many of them and know people who own them. I have seen just a few problems with them. They tend to dry rot and discolor around the top, above the water line, much quicker than a vinyl pool. It is also harder to get the bottom smooth and wrinkle free, making it more difficult for a cleaner to do its job.
Also, from what I have seen, steel wall pools are a better value for the money. If the price were the same, I would take a steel wall pool over a Tuff pool any day. To pay extra for a Tuff pool is something I will never understand, there are no advantages that I can see.
