    My Pool Build

    I am building a new house and everything is going good. Part of the house plan was always a pool. Dig starts tomorrow can't wait. I will try and post pics as they go. Here is the computer model.

    Re: My Pool Build

    Looks like a really nice design. We just dug on Saturday so only a few days ahead of you. It is really awesome to watch them dig and the steel is cool to watch. What are some of the stats on the pool (size, gals, equip etc...) Good luck!

    That graphic layout looks too small for a 34 x 16 in comparison to the chairs. Just saying....

    Very nice! Looks like it is coming along. What brand of pool finish are you using and what is the color/name?

    Stone Scapes Tropics Blue....Builder said to wait 10 days before adding salt. Does this sound right everything I have read on here said wait 30.

    The National Plasterers Council says to wait 28 days before adding salt. They are considered the most authoritative source. In practice adding salt sooner rarely causes problems, but it is better to be safe than sorry.
