    New pool in Michigan

    Hi, my name is Kurt and it has begun ...an 18x30x36 lagoon shape pool. I have been reading this site for months to prepare. Thanks to all the great articles so many have contributed.

    Subing out the excavation, vermiculite and maybe the liner. The rest is mine...

    The dig started this past week and I am currently getting the walls up.

    Equipment list:
    Intelliflo pump
    Pentair 120 heat pump
    Clean and clear plus 320
    Easytouch automation system
    Screenlogic
    2 intellibrite 5g color lights
    Turbo twister slide
    Diving board

    Welcome aboard,

    I wish I had sub-contracted my IG pool out myself, my PB is a joke

    What type pool are you installing, what's the vermiculite for?

    Got a link to the MFG/Model # inground w/a liner?

    Send some pics TIA

    This rain is crazy!

    Someone please make it stop! Feels like one day forward two days back. Just figured out today they shipped me the wrong steps. Find out tomorrow their solution.

    @krc211
    It is a vinyl liner pool and the vermiculite or pool base is for the bottom.
