    New Floridian here...First timer with PICS!

    Hello all,

    Pulled this off in 2 days! Marked our spot in the back yard, rented the sod cutter, spent the rest of the day leveling and pounding the yard, and threw the 16' Intex together. The next day we got our truck load of river rock dropped off in the drive way because the bags of rock just wasn't cutting it...Finished the rock and had some left over for my big BBQ smoker ! Now its all set up and we are learning as we go. I think I want to ditch the current pump/filtration system for the sand filter set up but I don't want the SWG set up because I've read previous posts of speeding up the rust process of the metal frame. Enjoy the pics!

    Welcome neighbor! I'm in Jax!

    Great job on the install!

    The only problem I see is that you did it in too short a period of time.
    I set mine up in 2012 and only got to the landscape part this week. Your making me look bad!

    really tho, looks great! And the family seems happy about it!
