    New here--looking at Radiant pools.

    Hello all,

    I'm in MN. Looking at a Radiant pool.Metric oval vs Grecian at this point. Would like it in ground (HOA says no above ground). There is probably a 2-3 ft drop in my grade over the 15-16 foot width.

    How far do the pool braces stick out from the wall?

    Can I frame up some plywood as a form on the downward side, and pour a wall up to cover up the pool braces?

    This part faces the woods, I do not want to put up a retaining wall--it would price me out of this project.

    Thx, and I'm sure I'll have more questions.

    So the woods are downhill, away from the house? Or the woods are uphill, draining down to the would-be pool? Sorry, trying to picture.

    I have a retaining wall/terrace in a much more dramatic drop from woods-to-house so I don't have much useful advice to offer about your plan except to say if your woods are uphill, make drainage accommodations
