    Snow delay!


    here to pour.. i believe they are digging out for the volleyball anchors and umbrella anchors


    poured and now stamping!



    done stamping the lighter color is from the release agent.



    after setting up for a couple days and pressure washing


    after sealing


    after pool krete bottom.


    liner almost all the way installed


    call the waterman!


    a little faster then the hose!


    filling rest with hose!



    view from master suite


    rocks for berm that goes around end of pool... that is going to be fun moving them (sarcasm!)


    since we finished filling with well water we ended up getting a algae bloom..

    with help of POOL SCHOOL, POOL MATH , Forum members, TFT100 pool test kit, and POP( i learned that term pool owner patience) 2 days later, crystal clear!


    decided to clean the filters even though the pressure didnt really go up much.... gotta love well water... not!



    cleaned filters using the FILTER FLOSSER... worked like a charm.. back to new!


    and that is where i stand for now... gonna work on the berm till the fence comes in ( a week away i hope) and just maintain water quality!

    Very pretty! That green pic scared me a little! Glad you got it balanced back out to clear and blue again! I'm definitely interested in seeing those rocks in their new home. I don't even like moving the marble chip rocks I have in my side yard. Those big ones are going to take time!

    thanks. it will be nice when the landscaping is done. its proving hard to keep clean at the moment with the dog (and occasionally me) going into the mud..
