I live in central Maryland with my wife and 4 children. We have an Intex Ultra that we put up last year and we love it! We love it so much that we are taking the first steps toward building an in-ground gunite pool. We've spoken with one builder so far and have calls into several more. This site has been a huge help already in thinking through the various (and almost always expensive) options.
If anyone has advice on national or Maryland specific builders, the build process, absolute must haves or definite avoids on options - I am all ears...
Thanks and look forward to getting to know everyone-
