    Update on my pool build in NC

    I am just waiting for the rain to stop so that the bottom can stop filling up with water. I am going to let it dry out before I put down the vermicultie. However this gave me time to finish my wall.Next is the new 26X38 deck which I would like to have done by March. Still looking for a robot cleaner, any recommendations? Also I have got to measure the pool for a safety cover, either a merlin or loop lock not sure yet.

    I really like it so far! Any chance of posting a pic of the whole pool from shallow to deep end and deep end to shallow?

    I love pool builds! Is this a DIY project? You are going to have an awesome summer in your new pool!

    This is new to me... why vermiculite? Is this a plaster component or something used as a base for shotcrete? It appears there is only dirt at the bottom now with finished concrete walls.

    Those look like steel walls for a vinyl liner pool. A vermiculite base over the soil bottom is a common construction method in the SE. With all this red clay in the soil, it's generally very stable.

    Aaah, thanks, FSI. I now see the reflection of the ladder against the pool wall... it sure looked like concrete on first glance.

    Well here are the pictures of the pool from end to end. They have not been able to get it done due to the rain.

    Could you make these a little smaller? I can almost see them.

    You make me laugh polyvue!

    Yeah, I can almost see them too.

    I really like the free form pools though!
