I'm a new pool owner and have been looking through found this site to be very informative and extremely useful. I have just finished building a new house and pool in Vietnam.
Because of the location, the fact that the pool is structurally part of the house, the lack of availibility of certain stuff and the fact that I work away from home I have to adapt some of your good practices to suite my own circumstance. When in Rome and all that.
I've tryed to attach a photo of the finished pool below to give you a better idea.
