Here is the portion of our backyard in question BEFORE:
Of course I knew an AG pool was the fast way to go, but I just bought the pool Friday night, in the middle of pool season. Over the weekend, we marked the spot:
I expected to have to wait, but it was delivered Monday morning. Here is our pool :
At 8:00 Monday night the installers were calling to schedule. I found myself ill-prepared. They wanted to send the excavator Wednesday (today), so I needed the 6 tons of masonry sand here and waiting. That left me Tuesday to find a deliverer AND find the sand (not available locally) AND get it here. By some miracle, we had the sand delivered this morning, and the excavator here before noon:
Now our yard is ready for the installers on FRIDAY!!! My boys are SO excited. I love how this one shows how BIG it will be
Now I need to shop for the items on my list for the electric. Electrician is beginning his work tomorrow, but it will take a couple days, since we are going almost 60' with it. The big challenge at this point is the WATER!!! We are experiencing a drought here, and everyone is running out! The one local water guy is maxxed out. We have a cistern ourselves, so I am not able to use ours to fill this beast. All the water guy can promise me is a single load (about 1000 gal) Friday during installation. Will it be okay til he can get back to me next week?! worried.
