    Re: Pool under construction...

    Here are the pics I took earlier today... after about 1 weeks worth of work by my dad and bro (they work as electricians and home repairs, so I figured they should be able to figure out how to set up a pool...)

    I will be digging out about half of my pool down 2 feet so I have a 6' deep end... still a lot of digging to do. We will be using anchors like shown in the last pic to tie the straps around for the deep end, and sinking them as shown here http://www.propools.com/instructions_ow ... dliner.pdf

    Any comments or suggestions?

    Re: Pool under construction...

    I had a 4th of July pool party yesterday... pool digging party anyway. Here's what it looked like after a day's worth of digging the deep end down 2 feet. (Walls went up this evening, will take pics tomorrow morning when it's light out...)

    And finally, the finished pool, open for swimming (There are some wrinkles in the liner, and it's not smooth in parts... but it's filled with water lol)

    Re: Pool under construction...

    Thanks so much for posting these pics.!!

    Your project is very similar to what we are hoping we can do w/ our backyard (relocating a used pool), and your documentation has really inspired us!!

    Your pool looks fantastic!!

    It looks great! Install for my 15x30 broke down to about $1200 plus $400 in leveling costs (we had a 14inch grade, 6in is included). BTW, I see you are in Bensalem. I'm from Levittown/Langhorne.
