    Yes pool fans, it's another build/install-Prince George VA

    Well, I've certainly learned a lot from this site and have enjoyed seeing other pool builds...so I thought I would post some pics of our fiberglass pool install as it progresses. This is day 1 before the dig.

    If they can keep up this pace, we'll be swimming in no time!!
    Tomorrow, they will have the bonding inspection, set the pool, fill the pool and back fill, start the pump, etc. I plan on using the TF100 and start getting the chemistry off to a good start. I did not think I would be this excited as the pool was my wife's idea (aided and abetted by the kids), but I am really looking forward to spending lots of time with family and friends around it and in it. Thanks again to all of you who have helped me by answering all my questions and just by posting and sharing such helpful information.

    Looking Like a nice install so far... They make those pools across town from me here in SC. Will be watching this install for sure.. They have a factory store that does installs locally here--been looking around and they have some of the best deals.

    Awesome looking home, Awesome looking view, Awesome looking pool.

    I think that is going to end up looking just wonderful, looking forward to progress pics and most important, pics of it finished and full of water.

    Did you buy any bikini clad pool babes to go in it?

    Looking great!

    Did you end up using RPS for the install?

    DAY2
    Thanks for all the kind comments. To answer the ?'s...no pool babes-happily married for almost 29 years (wife may feel differently) and hope to be married (and alive) for another 29 years!! Yes, RPS is the installer. I thought the yard was cramped also and suggested a smaller pool, was over ruled by wife and kids!! Now for the pics:

    Today, Day 3 is grading, pool school and then wait for concrete and fencing.

    LOL. looks good. Was kidding about the cramped back yard. Wish mine was as cramped. My pool is going to take out over half my mowing area. Why do they put in all that gravel around the pipes? I am hard plumbing mine myself and will go under ground too. Should I do gravel too?

    I suspect the gravel is used to buffer the pipes against any larger rocks breaking them during backfill

    DAY#3
    The installers said they used the gravel to decrease settling as dirt will settle and gravel won't.
    Passed bonding inspection, etc. Pump running and rough grading done....Now we wait for the concrete....then we wait for the fence...I don't think my daughter will wait past the chlorine level being OK!!

    Thanks again for looking and posting!! Will update the thread when concrete gets done!!
