20 MIL Premium Brighton/Prism EZ-Bead Liner

At 20 MILS the Premium Brighton Prism is almost twice as thick as the common 20 GAUGE liners.


Hayward 19" Sand filter System with 1.5 hp pump

The Hayward 19" Sand Filter System is more than adequate for any above ground pool size.  The system will circulate all the water in a 24' pool through the filter media 3 TIMES a day for a common 12 hours filtration cycle.  All the filtration you need and then some!

Why sand filter?  Because sand filters are the easiest and most reliable filter system made!  Simply turn its handle to clean the filter on its own.  Turn the handle back when its done and your finished.  Easy!

Salt System

Hayward Aqua-Trol Salt System w/ timer

The Aqua-Trol is easily the greatest advancement in above ground pools in the last 50 years.  The salt system generates pure chlorine using the inexpensive salt that is placed in the pool's water.  And does the pool's water taste salty?  No.  (Nobody would like that!)

Why the Aqua-Trol?  The Aqua-Trol is the most reliable and consistent salt system on the market.  There are many other cheaper salt systems, but not better salt systems.  The Aqua-Trol produces and places the chlorine in the water so that you do not have to do it.  Ever!

This system also comes with its own pump timer built in so that you will not have to cut your pump on and off everyday.  It does it for you.  Easy!


Heavy Duty A-Frame Ladder System

You need a way to get into and out of your new pool.  You want it to last and look good for years.  You want it to be tough.  You want it to handle any weight it may need to handle.  You want wide, easy access and you want to be able to keep kids out of the pool when you are not there.

All these reasons are why we place the Heavy Duty A-Frame Ladder System in each package.  All Resin structure gives the ladder long and beautiful life.  Wide steps to easily go in and out of your pool.  A cool, gray color for being there, but not standing out.

Equipment Pad

2' X 3' Equipment Pad

We throw this item into the package to preserve the life of your investment.  The Equipment Pad keeps the pump and filter system free from minerals in the soil and the elements.  This lengthens the life of the filter system and keeps the area around the filter system easier and cleaner to maintain.

2'x3' makes it big enough for any filter system.

Maintenance Kit

Deluxe Maintenance Kit

Thermometer: So you can check the water temperature before diving in.

Test Kit:  So you can stay on top of the water chemistry.

Brush:  Scrub the sides of the pool or push debris where you want it.

Leaf Skimmer:  Scoop the floating leaves off of the top of the water or the floating bees that threaten your skimmers.

Vacuum Head:  Vacuum out the debris, just in case your mother comes over.

Vacuum Hose:  35 feet long to manage every pool.

50' Backwash Hose:  Use this to route water away from the pool when the filter is cleaning itself.


Widemouth Skimmer and Return

Water has to get from the pool to the filter system and there is no better way to do this that the extra large opening of the widemouth skimmer.  Every pool needs a skimmer and return, so you might as well do it best!

The Expert's Advice

The Vanguard is an incredibly beautiful and well designed above ground pool.  If you are looking for the best of the best, both quality and looks wise, then the Vanguard is your pool. 

Because of these attributes, the Vanguard would lose what you are paying for if you cover it completely with a deck.  If you do, you won't see its modern design or benefit from its structural perfection.  This being said, the Vanguard is at its best when the pool will be seen.  It's perfect for those pool owners that do not plan on building a deck and want a nice looking pool to stare at.





20 MIL Premium Golden Beach EZ-Bead Liner

The Golden Beach is an EZ Bead liner, just like the included Brighton Prism and it is the exact same quality.  So if you like this pattern better, go for it.  No right or wrong.  Whatever you like best!



Hayward 22" Sand filter System with 1.5 hp Matrix pump

Just to let you know, the 19" filter that comes with the kit is well capable of keeping any pool size clean and headache free, but we understand that different pool owners have different plans and ideas.  For this reason, we offer the 22" system for those customers that are placing the pump and filter system far away from the pool or those customers that just like an extra punch in filtration.


Deck Ladder

Heavy Duty All Resin Deck Ladder

Same quality, same width, same all resin structure as the included A-Frame ladder, just made for a deck.  If you know that you are going to build a deck immediately after you assemble the pool, then save some money and get the deck ladder instead of the A-Frame ladder.




Aqua Staircase

Sometimes the swimmers that will be in your pool will have a hard time using the ladder system.  This is where the Aqua Staircase comes in.  The Aqua Staircase is designed with one or two handrails, depending on your needs.  This step system is the highest quality step system we have seen. 

One other benefit we have seen over the years with the Aqua Staircase is that the smaller kids can sit and play on the steps to enjoy the pool with everyone else, and give them that "big kid" feeling.  Having the Aqua Staircase  always gives the little ones somewhere to play and be apart of the pool experience.






The AquaIlluminator light is the brightest above ground pool light available.  This makes it perfect for any size pool.  The AquaIlluminator is designed to be a light and a return from the filter system and fits into the return hole so no other holes will need to be cut into the pool wall.  This allows the pool owner to have a light and keep their pool's warranty.


Mineral System

Nature2 Mineral System

The easiest way to explain a Nature2 Mineral System is like this:  Have you ever had a fish tank?  You can't put chlorine in the tank to clean the water, you will kill your fish.  So what do you do?  You use a mineral cartridge.  As the water flows through the mineral cartridge, the nature effects of the minerals on the water is to kill the bacteria. 

This is exactly the same idea as a Nature2.  As the pool's water flows through the cartridge, the bacteria is killed and the water is left clean.  However, seeing as though the pool is not in as controlled of an environment as a fish tank, chlorine is still needed to keep the sanitizer level proper, but the chlorine use is cut in half.  This saves you money and keeps the water cleaner with less chlorine in the water.  WIN/WIN!

Now as far as this applies to your salt system pool is that you still reduce your sanitizer level and it greatly extends the life of your salt system cell.


Pool Cove

Permanent Pool Cove

Permanent Pool Cove is what we call an insurance policy.  If you are in a situation where water is flowing and running around the pool, then permanent cove will help protect your pool's cove from washing away. 

The cove is a very important structural idea with above ground pools and protecting it is a must.  The cove is peel and stick, so installation is a snap!


Wall Foam

Waveless Wall Foam

Wall Foam is a must for anyone planning on have a heated pool.  The foam helps insulate the pool's wall, which is where a great deal of the pool's heat is lost.  Wall Foam will help keep this heat in the water.

Another big advantage of wall foam is the fact that it will protect the wall from chlorinated water if the liner were to ever leak on the wall.  It also helps keep the liner from getting a puncture o the wall, since the foam will be the softest part between the wall and liner, taking the bulk of pressure if the liner's wall is struck.  Wall foam is not a must, but always a benefit.


Floor Foam

Waveless Floor Foam

Once a pool is filled with water, the sand underneath the liner will quickly become hard like concrete from the water weight on top of it.  This is where floor foam comes in.  Seeing as though you are always bare foot inside the pool, floor foam will give you that extra cushion and comfort. 

Floor foam is extremely easy to install and we recommend it for every pool we sell or install.  We have it on our pools and we know you would love it in yours!
