We finally got the pool replaced this past June after waiting THREE YEARS for the rain to stop and the pool area to dry enough to put the new pool in! The old one blew out in May of 2013 and the rains started the following week. The pool area is inside the deck, at the bottom of a long slope, next to and about 6" higher than the swamp which forms our back yard. And yes, it is in a flood plain. The pics are starting the fill...full and now . It took a week to get it this way. As you can see, our well has a little iron. As soon as the heat and humidity back down - heat index is 111' as I write this - I'll rebuild the deck!
