I have been reading everyone's Pool Build's and they are SO inspiring! We just recently moved to Texas from Orange County, Southern California. As part of the big family move here the deal is I won't be working and I will be at home with my three wonderful children. So, for the first time in a long time I will be blessed with a few minutes to enjoy my family a little more. And become a PB! Ha! However it's HOT here in Texas and we need a Pool! So, we have met with several different PB in the area they all seem to want to wait forever for each meeting and then wait again, months go by and we have yet to sign a contract with anyone. However not for the lack of diligently trying. I was told by many of the residences here in Corpus that this place is just different then the rest of Texas. Far be it from me to criticize I just want to get a pool put in our backyard. lol Well, nevertheless I have chosen to take on the Pool Building task myself. That is to sub out all the work and accomplish this before the holidays. To date progress has been made, I have drawn up the plans, called 811, received HOA approval, obtained city permits, city come out and placed setbacks, painted or laid out the outline of the pool. (yet it rained last night washed my paint away) Last week I decided to use the services of pool and spa designs to make sure my pool would be engineered correctly. Which so far their drawings look like copies of mine so I am not sure what I think as of yet. I will keep you posted. They are working on a plan with more details which they are to be giving me on Monday. So I will look forward to seeing them and sharing them with everyone. Monday is the BIG Excavation DAY, i'm so excited and nervous all at the same time. I will Post Pictures as I go, as so many have been so kind to do before me~
If anyone would be willing to scrutinize my listed pool equipment that I am so inclined to be using for this pool. I would be extremely appreciative for your wisdom and education. I am in the mist of ordering everything and I don't have a clear plumbing schematic diagram at the moment.
