    DIY build southwest Missouri

    Not a good time to be building a pool here! Record rains for the last 4 days. This is our build so far.

    Send some of that rain up here! I keep watching the radar, and it's missing us by about 30 miles. we need it!

    Sorry it's messing up your pool build.

    Things went great the first three days. Then the trouble started! Saturday morning we awoke to this.[attachment=1:bioasxxk]ImageUploadedByTapatalk1375842285.453068.jpg[/attachment:bioasxxk]

    We pumped all of the water out but mother nature dumped lots more rain the next day. [attachment=0:bioasxxk]ImageUploadedByTapatalk1375842347.370077.jpg[/attachment:bioasxxk]

    More rain Monday and Tuesday, But at least they were not flooding rains!

    We have gotten the walls leveled again and are working toward pouring the collar on Thursday afternoon (hopefully we won't get more rain!)

    Radar currently shows you getting more.

    Hope you can still pour tomorrow!

    [attachment=0:14l2kvcx]ImageUploadedByTapatalk1377614013.362216.jpg[/attachment:14l2kvcx]Walls leveled, plumbed and straight. Ready to pour the collar. Too wet so we hire a pumper truck. Then the cement truck doesn't wait for instructions of where to go and gets stuck!

    With the current weather outlook, you may yet be able to swim in what is shaping up to be a beautiful installation.

    It's been a bit frustrating for you, obviously, but seems to be moving forward finally.
