So I’ve been picking your brains with the “Search” feature for almost a month now. Still have a lot to learn (I don’t quite speak “pool” yet), but there’s a gold mine of info on here and what seems to be a great community of people that are passionate about their pools and helping others.With today being “Gunite Day”, I figured it’s as good a time as any to say “Hi”. So….Hi!
So to catch you all up, we started digging on March 18th, laid steel on Easter weekend, plumbed and bonding on the 28th. So things have progressed rather quickly. They hit a natural spring at the very bottom of the deep end. So when the inspector came out for the steel and bonding…we failed due to him not being able to see the bottom. Got a sump pump out there and ran it this morning to get the water out, and just got verification that we did pass. So gunite crew will be at the house at around 2pm!
My poor wife had to fly to Nashville on business yesterday, but I set up a webcam overlooking everything so she’ll be able to Skype in and watch from her phone. I’ll certainly update my sig with all the details, and will likely have questions along the way (so thanks to everyone in advance). Enjoy the pics!
Designer went a bit overboard with the foliage, but you get the idea. Here are the basics: 17' X 33' 8 person Spa 10' X 6' Tanning Ledge Depth: 3.5' - 6'
Maybe I can take advantage of the natural spring to fill my pool?
Was NOT happy with where they ended the lines....they will be moving it left another 2 or 3 feet when they pour the pad.
