    12x24 Gemini Inground Pool Install . Barrie Ontario Canada



    Here is the same pool installed last year.



    This pool was installed up the street from me. So I decided I would get the same pool.
    My yard is a little smaller than this backyard but should fill my yard nicely.

    Stay tuned over the next 3 weeks for photos of the build!

    April 7 2013 ---Here is the fence being taken down today! They are going to start to bring the equipment to the backyard and get it
    ready for the weather to change. Its still very cold outside here in Barrie, Ontario. With Roller Coaster Temps for the
    next few weeks with rain. Will Update as the pool build moves along, and maybe I will have questions also.
    I have been lurking over the winter and reading all the posts on here.
    Thanks for a great pool Forum. !



    Stay Tuned Folks !

    We have some nice weather today, so the work began.
    They started around 9am and finished around 5pm today.
    The crew took advantage of the nice day finally and worked hard.

    It all works out when you have a pool builder with years and years of experience.









    We have the walls going up, the deep end (7 foot) shaped and moving on the the shallow end in the next few days.

    Looking good for the first day of work !

    Here is a look from the up-stairs window. Looking great, we are so happy with the look of the pool in the backyard.

    I have been busy working on getting the fence back up, and city in to inspect the fence. That's all been approved now.

    I had a bit of trouble getting a someone to come in and do the stone work for the Patio.

    Finally, we found someone Drake Industries, http://www.drakeindustrieslandscaping.com/, Randy, quoted on the phone
    and showed up and did the job in 6 hours with 2 helpers. Great Guys, great patio. Drake Landscaping was also on the front page of the 2010 Unilock Magazine. We thank Drake Industries & Landscaping for coming and getting the patio installed so we could continue on our pool adventure. ! THANK YOU RANDY ! If you need someone for Landscaping and Stone Work in Barrie, Ontario, and surrounding area then call DRAKE INDUSTRIES LANDSCAPING Barrie, Ontario. They install stone, unilock pavers and do all your stone work.



    The unilock brick I got was called Northshore, I got it at the Big Unilock Sale in Barrie, Ontario. It was seconds but looks amazing.! We are so happy with the look of the patio, the Northshore Brick give it a flagstone look also.





    We are getting down to the last few jobs, liner and pool equipment, electrical.

    To answer a few questions on the thread here, The slope I think is just less than an inch or so. From what I can gather.

    The Liner I went with was Panama


    We are getting more excited every day !

    Liner has been placed in the pool, Justin wanted to be the first one in the pool, so he went in as we were filling it!

    Heater


    Equipment


    Pool



    The pool is finished, I have to work on the garden beds surrounding the deep end, fix the front yard from the trackers, repair some of the land around the house from the construction of the pool. I went with a chlorine system. I had read so many different things about salt or no salt. I decided that I would stick to chlorine for now. I will post some pictures when I get the landscaping done. The build by Dynasty Pools in Orillia went well, the people working understand your needs and get the job done. I didnt have any problems but if I did have any concerns they are there to listen and give there input.

    We are very happy with the pool in the backyard. It looks amazing from inside the house looking out, and now we are just waiting to try this pool out ! The weather this week is very cold outside and windy (May 25 2013) Next week the weather is suppose to be going back up, so.. bring the heat wave on soon ! We are now ready.

    Thank You for the reply!

    I posted my pool build because this site helped me out so much when I was wondering what the whole process was to build a pool.
    I spent most of the winter dreaming about my pool! and reading this forum.

    So I decided I would give back to the site with my pool build. !

    And with this picture, is the reason I got the pool built.

    I can't wait to try it myself but the water was only 61 currently when this picture was taken.

    Kids seem not to mind, but, he did get out fast !

    Fixing grass, and loading up the gardens around the deep end with triple-mix.



    Started to fix some grass, and once I got going I went straight to the gate, and fixed the neighbors side at the same time.

    Going to add a big thick rock between the grass and the garden, to make a garden wall.



    Looking at the back corner of the pool, I dumped triple-mix, and one plant is planted now ! Lonely Plant, but more on the way!

    The weather is going to hot 30 On Thursday , Friday, So....

    Im going to try this bad boy out for the first time !
