I know I need to update my signature, and there is a lot of backstory, but here's where I am right now:
It's an important job, and I re-injured my back yesterday.
Of course we aren't as far along as we thought we'd be, just as every other pool build in history has gone.
We bought ours used, from a lovely (and wildly amusing) family that had had it installed in August of 2003. It's a 24x52 with Hayward 300lb sand filter, new 2-speed motor, deck with hillbilly engineered slide, and a Hayward Aquabug. Here is the pic from the ad they posted:
The new liner, foam cove, and foam for the bottom are in the garage. TF-100 is in the kitchen waiting for Little3 and I to have some water chemistry fun (he's 11 and high functioning autistic, loves science!).
We here are DIY to the bone. We built a cabin with lumber we sawed from timber fallen on our property.
I'm still in the process of cleaning & painting pool parts, but hopefully we will have water next weekend.
Thanks to you all here at TFP for giving me the knowledge that led to the confidence to fulfill my lifelong dream of having a pool.
