Good Morning. We finally made the decision to put a pool in. We interviewed several pool builders and signed the contract at the end of February. The pool specs are as follows: Pool 20' X 36', 7' Round Spa, Pool depth 3' to 6', Paramount Pv-3 Infloor System, Oklahoma Flagstone Coping, Blue Glass tile at waterline, Pebble Brite Plaster, 2HP Tristar 2 Speed Pump, 1 1/2 HP Booster Pump, 3 Color Logic LED Lights (2 pool and 1 spa), Hayward 550 Cartridge Filter and Hayward 400k heater.
After several weeks of permit issues, we were ready to start excavation. Although we were ready, mother nature was not and dumped a ton of rain on us. We finally broke ground on March 15 but the excavators could only work for about 20 minutes because the ground was too wet. Lucky for us it did not rain that weekend and the excavators came back on the 19th and work for the whole day. Unfortunately, that night Mother Nature dumped about 2.5 inches of rain on us and completely filled the "pool".
The "pool" had to be drained and the ground, which is mostly clay, had to dry out again. The excavators are scheduled to come out on Monday and hopefully finish the excavation portion of the build.
This excavation feels like it is taking forever. Silly me, I thought this would be the easy part.
