Well, I have been a member of the forum for a couple years now and never posted. Just browsed and watched everyone building their pools and reading, reading, reading!
Up until now we have had an above ground 16' round intex pool... It has been super but my wife and I both have always wanted an inground pool. So, over the last couple years I have been reading and researching (this is where trouble free pool comes into play) and meeting with Pool Builders. I have talked with several people that I know that have pools to see what people really do and don't like about how they did their pools. One of the most common things that everyone said was... GET LOTS OF CONCRETE!
Well, it looks like the time has finally come for us to get our inground pool! On Tuesday this week we signed the contract for our pool. If all goes as planned the digging will start in the middle of March! We are soooo excited! It almost doesn't seem real yet... (our pool builder said that it will hit us when he starts messing up our yard... ) I think I can deal with the mess for the pool.
This is roughly what we're looking at doing... it's pretty basic but we're Super Excited...
18x36 Rectangle 2' Radius Corners
Liner over steps
Easytouch w/ Salt
1 LED Light
18" Deep End Seat/Bench in Corner
Diving Board with U frame
Approx 1250sq ft of Brushed Concrete
When we start the build, I will keep everyone updated and add lots of pics...
About a year ago I purchased "Realtime Landscaping Pro 2012" and this is a couple of the shots of what I have come up with...
