By CARLTON SMITH , The bargains in backyard swimming pools soon will be blossoming in the ads — and along with the flowers that bloom in the spring, tra la, we can count on an excellent crop of pool promoters. They will provide thousands of families with a type of soaking that was not quite what the buyer thought the contract called for. Backyard pools have become big business — so big that there's a multimillion-dollar take in it just for the fly-by-night promoters and their hit-and-run salesmen who fan out across the country every summer, according to the National Swimming Pool Institute. The institute, representing major manufacturers and dealers, last year reported a flood of complaints from the victims of the gyp artists. "Bargain" pools leaked, rusted out, sagged, cracked and, in several in- oLedii Will Be Open Sunday 1-5 P,M. For Your Shopping Convenience 149 E. MAIN ST. stances, collapsed in a strong wind. Filtera Filters and pumps wouldn't work, the service promised by warranties didn't materialize, and warranties and guarantees themselves proved worthless. Pool promoters are now operating in all sections of the country, the institute warns, and offers this advice to prospective purchasers: Dealing with a reputable company is the only way to insure that somebody will stand behind premises and guarantees. Check the company out with a Better Business Bureau or Chamber of Commerce. And when a salesman tells you he's selling the product of a company you know to be reputable, check his credentials with the company. Be doubly suspicious of special deals, today?only discounts and other types of buyer bait that promoters typically use. Before Signing Before signing anything, make sure you read it carefully and understand it. Take a sales- Who Has The Most Jean Tops LESLIE'S LESLIE'S man's word that ''this is just to get an estimate," and you may find ydu*ve bought this week's leaky special. Any contract you sign, the institute advises, should specify in full detail all materials—down to weights and colors — complete costs including optional extras and finance charges, who is going to install and who pays for the installation. Unless there are a couple of strong backs in the family, and a modicum of engineering expertise; avoid do-it-yourself bargains on any size pool above a wader. Installing any pool big enough to swim in involves a good deal of manual labor. Accurate leveling of the site for the pool is a must to avoid a water-running-down-hill effect, and spreading a bed of sand for the pool is often highly advisable, if not a necessity. Vinyl Liner Getting the vinyl liner to fit properly, on larger pools, is a job for the deft hand of experience. Pumps, valves and filters — sometimes a challenge to the amateur ~- have to work properly or you can develop serious pool problems. " Finally, any prospective buyer of a pool should inform himself thoroughly on operating costs, and problems, before taking, the leap. Many owners-have discovered that the initial cost was only the beginning of a long string of costs. Chemicals must be added at PB. *nd MRS.

Find out what r a season's supply will cost for For Program the size pool you're contempl; ing. Most pools have to be vacuumed at least once a week. Many communities require pools of a certain size and over to be fenced, for safety. That can add around $200 to installation costs. You may decide you just can't live without lights for evening dips — another sizable expense. The water itself is seldom free, and in communities with high meter rates its cost can be good for a stiff jolt to the pocketbook, since even a smaller pool will run 10,000 gallons of water through the meter.
