Well, I am about to take the plunge (pun intended). I am getting ready to sign a contract within the next week to build my first pool. I am very excited. It has already been a long journey. I have been thinking about and wanting a pool for several years. Every summer I get fed up with heat and say "I'm building a pool!". Then in the winter I say "I don't want to spend that much money". This has gone on for several years.
Then a couple of years ago I found TFP. And I have been stalking you all ever since. There is such a vast wealth of knowledge and experience on this site, and I have tried to absorb as much of it as I could. So I started a OneNote notebook last year and have been filling it with data. Every time I saw a picture of something I liked, I put it in the notebook. Every time I saw a post debating the pros/cons of something, I put it in the notebook. So when this summer's "heat" rant occurred, I decided to go for it.
I have meticulously documented my experience so far and hope to share it with this forum. Maybe someone else will find some part of it helpful. I will appreciate any and all feedback.
So here we go.
