    Looks like you've got a nice plan laid out!

    I'm sure if you post more details about your build, others who have inground pools can help you with some of the details as you need them.

    Exciting time, but I'm sure stressful as well.
    Should look great in your yard, I notice you have a fair sized tree back in the corner and that your dealing with a slope. What are you planning to do with the side cut on the hill once the pool is done? How will the tree roots impact those plans?

    Just curious.

    I like the buff waving guy at the top of the drawing. Does he come once, or twice a day to wave and show off for us girls?

    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.

    The next most exciting day will be your first swim. Even though there will be other smaller milestones, the most important one is that first swim. Make sure to set up a camera for that. My wife and I did for our first swim yesterday. You will love it.

    I'm a newbie to the world of pools. So I've got to ask because I've seen them in a number of pool builds now. What's the piping for in the bottom of your pool? Cleaning system?

    Thanks

    We are in the metro Atlanta area as well and are in the final stages of deciding on our pool builder. If you don't mind me asking, who did you use and were you happy with them?
