    New from Houston

    Man, I am so bad at this. I always just jump into posting and totally forget about introducing myself! 2nd pool so far, the first one we built from our design, but had to leave it when we moved. It was a great pool. I hope the guy who bought the house is taking good care of it!

    This pool is much larger, was built in 1980-something. Has a DE filter. We had cartridges before. We're finally renovating it - it was starting to fall apart when we bought, which the inspector did not remark upon but should have. I would have bid lower on the house based on the condition of the pool, but never mind.

    We live in Houston TX where about every other house has an in-ground pool. That means a wealth of choice when it comes to builders.
    45'6" x 19' x 26' gunite pool, 43,000 gallons! 3/25/2013 renovation: Arizona Buckskin flagstone coping, NPT Verona Borba Turquoise tile & deco tile, Jules Bright Blue glass trim tile, Altima Premium Plaster in Teal, Pentair Whisperflow 2.0hp Filter Pump, Pentair 60 sq ft DE Filter with Multiport Valve. Polaris automatic cleaner.

    Thanks mate. I thought it was just one thread, so I tagged onto the previous member's intro.
