    We are about 1 month into this pool project. The rain has slowed is down a good bit. PB says we will have the bonding beam poured this week. I am glad to finally see the shape come to life.

    It is now time for us to begin the liner selection process. I like the deep blues. My wife likes the emerald greens. Do any of you have a favorite in those two color families?

    What about black liners? I've not seen one in person but the pictures look nice. Does any one put there. Have a black liner? Do you love it or hate it? Would you get a black liner again? Does it make the water warmer than a blue or brown base?

    Looks great so far. Can't help with personal experience but recall seeing a few on here with black liners.
    If you search black liner in the search at the bottom left of the page you'll find quite a few hits.

    Here are a few I pulled up quickly.

    Re: New pool build - Murfreesboro TN

    We love our black liner...Would def do it again.... I can't speak to it being warmer than another color because I would assume I would need to have half my pool with a black liner and half with a different color to actually know the answer to that. So no help on that one...

    Re: New pool build - Murfreesboro TN

    We definitely love ours as well. I think they really look good in the lagoon style pools. I asked my wife if she thought she would want to change it when this liner wears out and she said, "No way!" Guess that counts for something. There were several debates I found on here that discussed whether a darker liner would increase the temperature but nothing was really concrete evidence either way. I guess the only true way of knowing would be to have 2 pools close together with the same depths and gallons of water with different liners to really tell. I finished my fill just as the temps were starting to fall for the year. However, my pool has about 10 hours of direct sunlight and it has been plenty warm. Good luck in your build!

    Doobs and mastertech thanks for the insight. We are still debating but we think it could look good with the style of pool we are building n

    We are just a few miles east of you in Cookeville. We love the black granite liner and would definitely do it again. Not sure about if it increases temperature as we have no point of reference as this is our first pool. The color is a deep turquoise blue when the sun hits it.

    New pool build - Murfreesboro TN

    Here is today's progress. It's hard to tell from the pictures but all the panels are at grade and plum. The PB drove 36" "L" shaped spikes in the ground at every black polymer support and multiple rebar spikes through the Pre drilled holes in the panels. All the panels are now in their final place and they pour the bonding beam of concrete around the outside perimeter of the panels tomorrow. This should really increase the rigidity of the entire wall system. The Fort Wayne elite wall is VERY solid. I'm glad I went with that choice.




    Maybe it's because I'm in Nashville... But this thing is looking more and more like a guitar.

    The "Bond beam" is now poured. Workers will be back Friday to backfill and prep for plumbing.

    Well, the PB made some good progress this week. The majority of the backfill is complete. We are working on final concrete deck design. I did carve out some space for an outdoor kitchen. I'm not sure what size an outdoor kitchen needs to be but I'm going with 15x13. Do you think that is a reasonable size?

    Re: New pool build - Murfreesboro TN

    I think that should be plenty of room for outdoor kitchen. Depending on what your lookin for. A lot of my research has been around 10x10 and 12x12 depending on the layout and what all you want included.
