I'm a little over 1 month into our project. This is the first pool I have built and we hired a local company to build the pool and design the rest of the backyard.
I'm learning something new every day I watch these guys build the pool. I don't know how anyone could hire a Pool Builder and not still be home just about every day to answer the dozens of questions that come up. Along the way I'll post stupid little things that I am learning in the hope that it will save someone else some frustration.
If anyone else wants to add to the list feel free to post.
Tip #1 - Get a LONG hose and a nice spray nozel. You are going to spend a LOT of time watering down the pool, coping and concrete. I have a nice hose, but I don't know if it will survive the construction process. It was dragged over the gunite for 2 weeks, ran over by multiple bobcats and wheel barrows, pulled around dozens of steel stakes and it has a lot more to go.
