    Hello from San Diego...!!

    Hello to everyone. Wanted to stop by this thread and introduce myself. Just starting down the pool path with my first pool build at my house here in San Diego. Been in the Navy for 26 years, just got married in January (my wife will have to put up with my craziness for this endeavor)...

    Currently, I have 3 bids on my pool build and I'm in the fact finding/pricing/comparison/homework stage as I'm sure most of you were in at one time or another. My pool will be small, in ground shotcrete, about 9000 gallons, 10x20 feet (not including the spa), 3 1/2' to 6' deep, raised 7' x 7' spa, quartzite coping, stacked rock veneer on the raised spa and raised coping back wall, pebble tech finish, and brick pavers to finish off the surround and tie in my patio to the rest of the yard. I'm also getting a swim trainer installed in the wall of the deep end.

    Looks like a great forum community! I'm sure I will be posting alot here for the build.
