    Thanks for the referral!

    We are going with a 3 HP variable speed pump
    W-a-a-ay overkill for a pool that size. You could use a 1.5 HP 2 speed and have adequate flow and save a lot of money.

    Problem is the hot tub is over 70' away so we had to bump that up. Minimal cost and variable speed won't be a killer.

    Best renderings ever, at least that I've seen! Can't wait the see the progress. Maybe you can show a side by side of the actual versus concept drawing at the end.

    I have a 3 hp variable speed pump on my pool and yes it is way overkill but that's how Pentair builds it. The pump cost $850 and NStar, our electric utility, gives you a $200 rebate for buying it so between the rebate and the operating savings it will pay for itself in no time. If you are getting the same pump, you will love it. Unless it is running at full speed you can't even hear it.

    Awwww YOU are off to a good start with the pics! I LOVE living the pool build through pics. I am so glad I do not have to really live it (pushed back starts and so on).

    Good luck today. Will you be able to be there when they dig?

    Thanks Kim. I was here for the dig which was nice to see everything go down. (or go out. )
    Also helps everything stay on track.
    Here's today's progress:

    My daughter standing in the hole was already asking when the water was going in... Tomorrow or Friday?

    Faster than you think with a liner pool. We were swimming in ours in a week and a half. Of course, that was at the beginning of August and I'm still working in the pavers. Too much swimming to get the pool finished!

    Looks nice and clean, we had ground water and huge rock issues... Did they say when they would be there with the panels?

    Doobs,
    Ken told me about all the rock you had. This looked very easy to dig with very little rock.
    They don't have the pool kit in yet, So they don't have a date for me.
    I am glad I'm not expecting this done this season. Much less urgency.
    Are your skimmers painted on the inside or are they black plastic? They want to sell me white "throats" that are painted black with black face plates.
