    Finally some pictures

    Just finished backfilling the two foot depth around the pool and covered the dirt with landscape fabric. I am at the end of my budget for the year after completely redoing our patio with raised flower beds and a new pond as well as this pool project. Next year I plan on removing the 30 year old rotten deck and building a new one out of ibe wood right up to the edge of the pool. ( 12 X 24 ) I will also build a two foot high rock wall about 10 or 12 feet from the other side of the pool and wrap it around the one end of the pool to meet the deck. After backfilling this, I think I will just do a paver top of some kind. That will leave only the side with the ladder, skimmer and return open.

    Got my test kit the other day and I love it. My tap water has high TA, so I worked on that and it is already down to 70ppm. I added CYA with a target goal of 40. Should be there by the middle of the week and then I will start to add the borax. So far, my water has remained crystal clear and I have been using the excuse of brushing the walls to be able to get in the pool, what with all the remaing work I have to do around here. Does anyone think that there will be a problem with having one long side and one short side basically completely inground?

    Hayward 300 lb. sand filter
    Pump and filter located 30 ft. away from pool with 1 1/2 in. pvc plumbing.
    Future plans:
    deck built abound two sides
    ground level patio/walkway around other two sides
    2 X 20 ft. solar panel heater.

    Hi Tcian! Welcome!

    The pool looks great AND ofcourse you have to get in and do the walls! Especially when it's hot!

    Do I see fish in your pool?
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
