    Turtles Are Swimming

    Well our day has arrived. Yesterday at 1pm the hose was placed in the pool for filling. PB tells me we can swim this evening. Now just the clean up, and sod remain. Darrel from Pools By Greg tells me the clean up will be done soon.

    Oh! How beautiful! Your mozaics are wonderful~~

    What color Pebble Tec did you get? You must post photos once the pool is filled--it's going to be dreamy.

    Looks like Desert Sand. My favorite, but I can't talk the wife into it. She thinks it'll make the water look green when the pool is full.

    Re: Turtles Are Swimming

    The color of the pebble tech is sky blue. I will add pic's of the filled pool tommorow. When it was first filled the color was slightly green due to the CIty water. Only took a couple of hours after chemicals were added, it turned blue. I put two LED lights in the pool which are not working right now. Told the transformer was bad. Cant wait to see what that looks like at night. We are so happy with our choices. Cant say enough about PB, the first and most important choice. Only regret is the 10' drainage easment that prevented deck from going further on the back edge. Oh well, cant have it all.

    I've heard that swimming too soon can leave footprints in fresh plaster...anyone else want to comment? ~36 hours may be enough, I just don't know.

    No foot prints. According to the pebble tech installer, as soon as water is in it you are good to go.
