    Here is dig day. Like a bomb went off back there. Back yard is small. Corner lot but the easements on the side and back really limits size.

    tile and coping done. Red brick will be covered by textured decking (some type of brown/beige) that we picked out.

    Looks great I'd get rid of that Nature2 unit at the equipment pad before water goes in though

    Welcome to TFP

    You'll find the google serach at the bottom of this page for this forum. Plenty of nature2 threads and i'll go x3 and say not worth the hassle. A swg and a good test kit as described here is all you need The N2 just adds unecessary metals to your water and doesn't really reduce the need for sanitizer (chlorine). You'll see plenty of threads here where folks with the N2 and Frog system saying "please help".

    Here is a somewhat related article in pool school http://www.troublefreepool.com/alter...uth-t3025.html
    Take a read through Pool School (button on upper right of this page) and you'll find a ton of info on how to care for your pool. And any questions, just feel free to ask.

    Awesome looking pool project

    Re: Our Pool Project

    was just reading all the Nature 2 threads. Interesting. I think I will get the pool up and running then make a decision. (probably will just yank the cartridge). If I pull it now and there is a problem I could see the pool company blaming me. I just started checking out the recommend test kits. Thanks for all the info.
