    Thanks for the warm welcome. Im kinda surprised to see activity this much on here. I like it! Im used to car forums where there are 250,000 members so you almost cant keep up with new posts. I started over at poolspaforum and although I got some replies, it just isnt as active as I see this is. pleasantly surprised.

    Welcome to a fellow Georgian
    I envy you your diving board- that's the one thing I wish we'd done differently. Our 6 ft deep pool just isn't deep enough and I sooooo miss diving.
    Kudos on using the black fencing. It almost disappears and doesn't detract from the gorgeous view like galvanized does.

    The fencing was done by the previous owners. It had just been installed along with the privacy fence when we purchased the home. I do agree, its not noticable really.
