Hello everyone, just wanted to say a big thanks to Sean for opening this site, for the past 9 months I have been reading Pool Forum and salivating about not being able to register, finally I get to post some questions and get answers from all you vet's.
As you can see by my signature, our pool was put in last fall, and this spring I have been busy building the deck, our reason for not using concrete is simple, I have never ever seen it be able to withstand our dramatic temps up here in New Brunswick Canada, so we got the PB to raise the inground 1 foot out so we could build a deck around it. I love the look of wood and figured I would build it myself, well, three weeks into it, I thought some of you might get a kick out of this. I plan on making a sign to post up on the fence, something like this.
