My name is Scott and I have been enjoying reading up on and studying all the excellent info on this site. My wife and I just moved into a newer house in Northern Kentucky. We have started a pool fund to purchase and install an AGP next season. We are just trying to figure out what size pool and what type (round vs. oval) we want to purchase. We have a decent slope in our backyard so the excavation will be extensive. For example our deck is 24ft wide and on the left side it is about 2ft above the ground but at the right side it is 6ft above ground. I know I will be putting a retaining wall in probably. I will post a pic of the slope later on. Keep up all the good info!
