    Finally started build today

    After hours and hours of research, bids, more research, etc...we finally started our build today. Any feedback welcome. Thanks again for everyone's help getting to this point.

    The pool is 16x32. 3'4" to 8' diving pool. Construction is concrete block walls with vinyl liner.

    Nice - are you going to concrete fill the blocks?

    I am undertaking a similar project(plunge pool), but will be fully tiling it.

    Keep up the photos!!

    Yes, the concrete blocks will be filled with more concrete. We are on hold for a bit due to rain.

    Looking good! Are you going to build the steps as well, or use something pre-fab?

    Re: Finally started build today

    The steps will be formed from concrete. I assume they'll be poured when they fill the walls.

    PB had the 2" pvc dropped off today.

    Re: Finally started build today

    looks great!

    a hint:

    when you want someone to look at a specific post, use the URL button.

    steps:
    1. highlight the words that will serve as the link (ie. my post)
    2. press URL button which will surround your words with the url tags
    3. insert an equal sign = at the end of the first url (ie. url becomes url=)
    4. paste the fully qualified link immediately after the = sign (ie. url=http ... )

    Re: Finally started build today

    It is a little hard to see, but if you look directly below the coping brick you will see a white strip. That is an aluminum track type of material, which i assume the liner will ultimately plug into.
