Today is our install, just got a call from the dealer that they are OUT of the pool we ordered So he asks, can you fit a 30' pool instead of a 27' one.... I've agreed to the 'upgrade'. I had already bought gorilla pad for the 27' so they are throwing in perfect bottom in exchange for my gorilla pad.
I had intended to put a 3' circle around the pool of rock so I already have a 33' circle painted... the question is...
* Is 3' preferred (meaning a 36' circle) or can I get away with 1.5'-2'? I've already got the landscape edge on hand, adding more isn't a huge deal but it will cost. I realize I got a nice upgrade for no more money but that my future costs of liner/etc have also gone up. I'm planning to have the installer excavate out to my landscape circle so let me know your thoughts -- do I need to bring it out some more?
* Should I expect the installer to charge me his 30' install price??? I totally forgot to ask the dealer and figure I'll ask the installer when he arrives. We're stretched at this point. I don't want to be unfair to the installer, but it's not my fault either! To be fair, he has the ability to do 2 installs today within a block of each other.
I guess I'll use this as my install thread and go ahead and post some prep pictures I know how far pictures go to happy posters around here
