    Another pool newb here. West Texas

    Hello everyone, I've lurked on this forum off/on without a username for a year or so. We finally started on our pool construction(as I'm sure many of you can understand it has been a long hard road to just get here) I decided with the construction underway it might be wise to go ahead and register.

    Looks like a great forum, and I'm thrilled the internet exists so I'll have another resource for learning how to own/operate a pool.

    I'll make a thread in the build forum once I have more to share.

    They have started to rebar it. But it's got a Long way to go.

    It's never too early to start taking some 'before/progress' pics!
