    I'm glad we get along with the neighbors.

    No treasures found yet also no rock so bitter sweat.

    Re: Under construction in McKinney Tx

    Looking good. How deep is your pool? I am stressing as usual over every decision I make... is it right... etc.

    we are doing 3.5 to 6.5 with quite a bit shallow area to say 4.5 for volleyball. I hope it works out like I want since that is the whole reason I chose this pool shape! Oh geeze... the stress of it all.

    Thanks! KIM

    Re: Under construction in McKinney Tx

    How funny, that is what I tried to do too! Trying to get the best of both worlds. Hope it works out for both of us. Your is alot like mine in that you have that area that curves off for the deep end.. I did the same thing. I went to 6.5 because of my little boy as he grows I was so afraid of diving even though I will say no, I know they will a little, so wanted a fairly deep end for lots of jumping etc.!

    I am so stressed about this whole thing, I so hope it turns out the way I planned because I have put hours and days into these decisions!

    I'll post a pic so you can see how much they are alike!

    Thanks a bunch.. kim

    Re: Under construction in McKinney Tx

    Thanks We love her too. She's an 8 month old fox red lab

    We'll get gunite Monday or Tuesday, depending on inspection. They were ready on Friday, but the HOA never sent the final papers for the inspector.

    Not too excited about pool being filled this early.

    Hopefully they'll get the inspection tomorrow and get gunite in.

    Re: Under construction in McKinney Tx

    Just a quick question..... I am at work and can't see your pics so this may already be answered. Do you have the two main drain set up or some other anti-entrapment device??? If so the SVRS on the intelliflow is not needed and can save a few bucks. I would also add that with the pool /spa combo and the SWG and VS pump for a little more now you could get the automation and not kick yourself in a few years for not starting out with it!!!

    Re: Under construction in McKinney Tx

    BHal235, thanks

    Yes I have the 2 main drains, but the connect into one return line. I'll have to look into the SVRS savings.

    I have easytouch 4 being installed.

    Re: Under construction in McKinney Tx

    Anti-entrapment plumbing is the code here in TX, so I would ditch the SVRS intelliflow and go with the new std intelliflow 018 model.

    Re: Under construction in McKinney Tx

    I know its easy to spend other peoples money... but you might want to just install an Easytouch 8, if the difference isn't too much. With my pool / spa / waterfall pool the Easytouch 4's relays were all used up. Since I planned on adding things in the future, like low voltage landscape lights, Gazebo, BBQ island, I added the extra four relays with the Easytouch 8. Now I have a few to spare.

    He's right about that! Easier and cheaper to do it now. You may not think you need them now, but you will.

    TxALH,

    We decided to go with Foley's We talked with Southernwind, Hobert, Artesian and a couple other phone discussions. We have a couple of friends in our neighbor hood who had their pools built by Foley's and we really like Rick Foley the sales person we dealt with.

    Thanks! We just met with Foley yesterday and he is putting a quote together for us -- will have it on Saturday. We have had many good recommendations for Foley from neighbors.
