    Pool Build-Oklahoma

    Starting a new build this week. We have a tiny yard! Still time to make changes. What do you guys think?

    We plan on keeping the pool between 90-92 degrees and will be installing a 400k heater(quick heating during marginal temperatures) and heat pump(summer heat maintenance).

    Re: Pool Build-Oklahoma

    Oh yea! Another build to help on!

    I would love to see a pic of the "real" yard where it is going.

    Is there a reason you have two tanning ledges? If you only had one you could swim laps better.

    How deep will your pool be?

    Make sure you get model numbers for ALL of your equipment.

    Add to your to do list:

    -buy a good test kit

    This is THE number one way to protect and care for your investment for the long term. Look in my siggy for the one we use and love!

    Slim and sleek. I think some of our best pools are the ones tucked into tiny spaces.

    They are planning on doing gunite tomorrow but we had a ton of rain today...

    Does this pose any problems? Ok to do gunite on wet soil?

    Thanks!
