    Red face Just Finishing Up and Thrilled

    Hello TFP! New to the forum and trying to get started on my way to a truly trouble free pool. I am a first time pool owner, other than the blow up type. My wife and I worked hard to make our dream a reality. After ten years of sitting on our patio saying "I wish we had a pool", now we do.
    Due to utility easements and city mandated setbacks, we weren't able to get as big as we would have liked but we stuffed an awful lot of fun into a small space and are thrilled with the results. We're looking forward to many, many years of enjoyment...and it's cheaper than the boat I wanted.

    Life is too short to not have both we put our pool in in 2013 and bought the boat in 2015. Life is good. Beautiful pool, enjoy!!
