Preparing To Install An Above Ground Swimming Pool:(from http://blog.poolcenter.com/article.aspx?articleid=6170)
Installing an above ground swimming pool is a relatively easy task to do. Depending on the size (Pools can range from 8 ft to 32ft or more in size) you can even assemble one on your own, although the assembly process is far easier if you have a mate or two to help you. Be sure to check with local codes to verify that a building permit is not needed, and to comply with any pool safety regulations that may be in place.
