    Sorry to hear - that looks exactly like my pool build that I am undergoing now. I wasn't happy either. We got through it with a bit of a hit to our wallet.

    pool almost filled. My dog decided to do a crazy dive and I had to rush in and save her in my clothes. I was not pleased.

    Today marks exactly 3 weeks. I lucked out with no rain. Also, it was easy for them to get in the back yard with all of the trucks going behind my house in the greenbelt.
