    New pool in southern Minnesota

    After more than a year of planning I've broken ground on my pool project. I'll let my picture do most of the talking.

    Hey oz (name?) . I have three adult children and one granddaughter. Here's a pic showing my stairs and ledge (from yesterday).

    lol, nope Oz is the Australian contraction of Aussie. It's Rod, which apparently is the Starbucks contraction of Ronald, Roy, Robert, Roger and Raul.

    Pretty sweet setup, I'm curious about your bid and specs as I await our second bid here in Ohio.

    Looks like great setup!

    Too late to ditch the ozone/UV combo and opt for a salt water chlorine generator?

    How much detail do you want TJ? I can answer any questions you have, or I could photo copy the bid (redacting the price info).

    Too Late for that JV. I liked the promise of less reliance on Chlorine and other chemicals. The adds tout "near drinking water levels of Chlorine". We'll have to see if it delivers.

    Thanks Maria!

    One guy uses Fort Wayne stuff for the pool and pent air everything else. We are looking at a sun deck and was told its 2k extra.

    Our first bid on an 18x44 with stadium step entry with deep end was 54k. 1000 sq ft brushed concrete included and felt that was steep

    That's a promise that seldom is kept while keeping the pool algae free. Ozone can actually increase chlorine demand. There is extensive discussion including alternate points of view in this thread: salt water vs. ozone purification A UV light system is valuable for indoor pools to eliminate combined chlorine as they do not get UV light from the sun. Outdoor pools get plenty of UV light to eliminate CCs and very little of your pool water passes by the UV filter to tangibly change the amount of FC that must be maintained.
