    New Build in MN

    I have been following this site for a while and it really helped with our build. We signed our contract to put in a 18x36 inground pool the 1st week of July, but couldn't get started until the day after Labor Day. Our powerline went across our backyard and it took our power company 8 weeks to move it.

    Here are our pool specs:

    Built in MN
    Used Paragon Pools and Spas - They did a great job as you will see in the following pictures.
    18x36 Inground
    Hayward SwimClear C4030
    Rheem P-M266
    Hayward Aqua Rite Salt System
    Hayward 2 Stage 1.5 HP pump
    Polaris 380 w/ booster pump
    ColorLogic 4.0 LED
    Autocover

    I was hoping to post every day during the build, but the crew was moving so fast, that I had stuff to move every night to keep up with them. As I said, we started on Sept 4th and by the 14th, everything is done except for the autocover, diving board, handrails, grass for landscaping and some fence work.

    Here are the photos of our build, I hope you enjoy.
