    Bit the bullet before winter arrival...

    So we decided to bite the bullet and get the pool installed before winter.. We were going to wait but we decided to just have it done so that next season we can just install heater and filter and be in the pool.. Also a big part was that the house is still under construction and once done we will have walkways and fencing where the machines would have needed to go to get into yard.. Anyway.. We went with an 18x33 semi inground which I think is going to look perfect in our sloped yard.. The pool is built to go 27" into the ground which is half the pool height.. Pool Builder said that we could cheat a little bit and go higher on one end which is what is going to end up happening in the back left corner.. Everything is still a mess.. We have the electrician and plumber on site today doing their thing so we can close up the trench and finish grading.. We have them running a few receptacles so that the filter will be on its own, heater on its own and should have 2 spare receptacles for light and misc. equipment.. Anyone have any recommendations if we should add anything while we have the trench open?

    Started with this mess:

    This post is a couple days old, so your trench may be filled-in by now. In any case, you seem to have a nice pool going in, and those extra receptacles you requested were a good idea. You never know what you'll want around the pool later. Enjoy!
