My name is Chris and I work full time as Pool Designer for a custom builder in Atlanta ,Ga. I got my start in this industry as an excavator in 1996 and have some 1000 digs to my name. I have been seen on HGTV a few times in my career but never got to say a word. Some of the projects that I have had the privelige to work on have made it to MTV's Cribs (one mans claim to fame I guess). I know alot about excavation and design but I hope to learn more about other aspects of pools such as hydraulics and equipment performance. I hope to an asset to this forum in exchange that I might learn something new.
