Started our pool build several months ago. We had to remove several trees and move a moderate amount of dirt. We started with moving our septic tank lines which was much more expensive than we expected. After the lines were moved, we were able to do tree removal and major grading. After the grading, we had to build a retaining wall to hold back the cut the loader made. Due to major expense, we decided to do this ourselves. We were able to build the wall in one day with some help and we are really happy with how it turned out. Once the wall was complete, we had to wait several weeks through the rain for the pool builder to start. Once the pool builder began, we were adding water within 3 days !!! Completely happy with the quality and ability of our pool builder (Earl Vaughn Concrete, Covington GA). His work ethic, and integrity is second to none !!!
Here are some specs of our pool: 18x36 vinyl IG, 2ft radius corners, 8.5 deep end, 3.5 shallow, Astral XV SWG, Heyward Tri Star 1hp pump, 2 Heyward skimmers, Heyward dual main drains, Heyward Colorlogic LED light fixture, Findlay 30mil Vinyl liner, 3 return jets, and a 3 seat jacuzzi step/jet step assembly.
