    Build Deck now or wait on the Pool to be totally up?

    Hello
    I am in the process of my build. I need to wait until I have a full day to watch the pool fill
    before I put it up. I am wondering if you guys suggest waiting until the pool is up to do the deck.
    Or should I just go about my deck building? I am only creating a 6x10 deck so it is really only a few hr process.
    The deck will be the Octagon shape of the pool for 4 sections.


    Thank you for any and all suggestions.

    I would do it after the pool is up, especially if you are matching the angles

    You want the pool filled so after you're done working up a sweat doing carpentry, you can take a plunge.

    Don't forget to empty your pockets. Cell phones and car remotes hate pool water.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
