It may sound silly, but having my own pool has been a dream of mine. Starting in spring, we will be building a 20 X 40 IG vinyl liner pool (saltwater filtration). Although I've been lurking, I can't wait to read even more info here. I can't remember the pump size recommended to us. Since we are doing a larger pool and auto cover, we have a limited budget on decking and will be doing concrete. I am now trying to determine how much space we'll need. Can't wait to read that section for your tips.
We live in tropical, sunny NE Ohio so a pool is truly a luxury around these parts. Our youngest son has autism and loves to swim. I'm excited for this journey to begin and look forward to educating myself more on pool ownership and maintenance.
