    Thanks! I have a lot more. Pool is all done now, but there is a lot more to do. Fence, landscaping, outdoor kitchen, fireplace, etc.

    It started to rain while they were pouring the poolcrete so they had to put the liner partially in. I'm not too happy about the finish of the poolcrete. At night, you can see every swipe of the trowel in the liner.

    WOW! You take lots of nice pretty pictures. Thank you.
    I bet they just loooved you, traipsing around the job site, being all nosy with your camera.

    I noticed when they were digging the deep end, that there was a picture showing what looked like a grey pipe /w a somewhat small chip out of it.
    Was that a pipe, or just a rock? What'd they do about?

    You can put the liner in right over the top of wet poolcrete?
    It doesn't sound like they did a rough-in coat 1st, followed up with a smooth, wetter finish coat. Sounds like either their troweling technique is bad, or the poolcrete was overworked. IE. Too dry, so they left lots of marks in it.

    But I'm no expert, just what I see on here.

    That was solid rock. It took them hours to get that last 12". The PB cut some corners on some things for sure. I'm not happy with the finish, but I guess i'm stuck with it until the next time the liner comes out. There was a lot of things I didn't like. If I had it to do over, I would have had them leave after the poolcrete and finished everything myself. The plumbing is terrible. Wait until I post pics of the pump. I plan on re-plumbing the filter in the spring.

    I don't care for the plumbing here. I plan on a re-do next spring with a heater of some kind. Maybe solar.
