    New in ground pool build in WPB, Florida.

    Hi everyone. We have been going back and forth for about a year talking to pool builders and finally this past March we signed with Van Kirk and Sons here in South Florida. The pool is already built, took between 5 and 7 weeks, probably less if the fence company had finished on time.

    Here are some of the details off the top of my head:

    Pool:
    - 24' x 32' with an 8' x 24' sun shelf, 3' to 5' depth.
    - 23k gallons.
    - Gunite.
    - 1 skimmer
    - 3 returns
    - 1400 ft^2 pavers deck

    Spa:
    - 7' x 6' inground spa.
    - 4 Jets

    Equipment:
    - 2 hp Jandy pump (single speed, whish I had asked for a 2 ... oh well)
    - Jandy 200 ft cartridge
    - Jandy Aquapure SWG
    - G & F 120k heat pump
    - Aqualink RS PDA
    - Air Supply air blower
    - 2x Jandy watercolor LED lights in pool
    - 1x Jandy watercolor LED light in spa

    I will start uploading some pics of the process, hope you enjoy
