    Looks great so far. Did they hit groundwater when they were doing the initial dig? Looks pretty dry to me.

    Pool is 4' on the ends and 5'-6" in the middle.
    We did not hit the water table.

    As for the skimmer covers...

    She is in Abita Springs LA and makes all sorts of New Orleans themed crafts.

    The skimmer covers that I have measure 11.5" in diameter. My deck was made to fit these. You may have to do some retrofitting to install as most skimmer covers are 10" in diameter.
