    We were rather stymied by a ton of rain in late August, early September which delayed digging by about four weeks. Our water table is a whopping 2.5-3 feet from the surface. The house has been here since the 1920's and apparently someone decided to use the yard as their own personal dump at some point. Found medicine bottles, rusted pipe pliers and assorted junk during the dig.

    We were able to get the water temp. up to over 90 degrees in a couple of days using a solar blanket. Since then, the night temp. has dropped and it's more like 86 degrees. It's rained this weekend, so I'm taking time to post.





    Experimentation with natural reverb.

    First time I've seen that! Might as well try it I guess; how many chances does one get?

    Looks great! What pool builder did you use? I'm from Saint Pete and just signed with Tri-County pools!

    Larsen's Pool and Spa in Oldsmar, FL. They're about a mile from my house and I've been happy with them. In fact, I gotta get around to writing a thank-you.
