Installation is finally beginning after rainy weather delays this summer. The fiberglass pool is now in the ground and is in the process of being filled and leveled, with initial plumbing. I had a gunite pool a few years ago in Houston and maintained it with the methods used on this forum. So, I've had some experience, but am a little rusty, plus this is going to be a saltwater pool. I am still considering vacuum vs. robot cleaner.
