    New DIY In Ground in MN

    Hello All,

    After lurking on here and getting great responses from so many, we are excited to be getting started on our in ground pool build here in MN. We are in the very beginning, and I hope to keep this thread going throughout the build. The details of the pool are in my signature. We have not yet ordered equipment and would appreciate any thoughts, opinions or experiences. We are also new to all things pool and this is our first build, so please keep the feedback coming. Wish us well. If anyone know how to keep the images from rotating, I can't figure that out. Sorry.

    I did my own 18x36, 650 yards of dirt and 1 yr 3 months later it's complete. The saving's is unreal. Anything is possible with youtube and books!
