We finished the build of our first pool in April this year after starting in September last year, first builder went in to liquidation left us with a dirty big hole in the ground and nothing else. Turned out not to bad in the end didn't loose to much money (insurance came good) main hit was to the schedule. Found new builders who where great and final completed in April which here in Sydney is the middle of Autumn. Had a few swims before it got to cold.
Now its warming up in Spring and we have a good few weeks swimming with the heater boosting the main pool to 28c. All seems good so far but with summer coming I'm sure the chemistry side will get more interesting, so far all good but will take water to pool shop today and see how we are going.
