    Hello from sunny AZ!

    I've asked many questions, and finally decided to introduce myself!

    We just finished building our pool (the wife and I designed and built it ourselves acting as the General Contractor).

    It is a 13,000 gal in ground gunite pool with a 1.5' extended "lagoon" step and waterfall.

    Here's some other stats:

    1.0 HP Pentair Whisperflow pump
    Pentair "Clean and Clear" 4-filter monster cartridge filter
    Hayward Navigator auto-cleaner
    BBB method since the first week
    TFP-100 test kit
    3M "Quartz" interior

    We are in Marana, AZ so the temperatures in the summer are regularly over 105 degrees. Plus our home backs up to some farmland, which blows in a lot of dust at certain times, both of which may lead to some interesting discussion topics.

    I've already received great help from JasonLion, Waterbear, and many other great TFP contributors, and really couldn't have done it without their help.

    Here's some pics of the finished product:

    Good Times

    Thank you! The yard still needs a lot of work, but at least there is a pool to dip into when it gets too hot.
    Good Times
