    Cool Finally started!!!!!

    After 2 years of debating getting a pool we finally took the plunge. We started this process 2 years ago, but potential relocations at work delayed it. This year I decided I can't just keep waiting thinking we might relocate, we will cross that bridge if and/or when we get there.

    Here are the pool specs-
    24'x44' Freeform
    Deep End poured concrete Bench
    Poured Concrete Steps
    Cantilever Edge with stamped border
    Unilock Brussels Paver Decking in Sierra, around 1400 Sq Ft
    Unilock Brussels Dimensional retaining wall
    2 laminar jets
    Gerano liner from GLI
    Intellitouch 8 with Screen Logic

    All Sta-Rite Equipment-
    450 Sq Ft Cartridge Filter
    400K Natural Gas Heater
    Salt Generator
    Intellipro Supermax VS Pump

    I am sure I missed a few things

    Here are a few pictures so far- by the way these pics are taken from the deck off my bedroom, going to be a great view.






    Everything look OK so far????

    Great looking pool!

    Ok guys, explain to me what is this style of pool building called? I'm talking about the big black forms around the pool.

    It's a liner pool with Polymer walls, based on going with Salt I preferred Poly, but I was not anti-steel. I honestly ended up picking the PB I wanted regardless of what type they used.

    This is the manufacturer I went with-

    Thank you all, I am planning to do all landscaping behind it, no lawn eventually.

    Also plan an outdoor fireplace when the budget allows.

    Permit is signed off for the footing, now they start to backfill. PB is pretty busy, has several going on at the same time. Electrician comes tomorrow to run conduit for future lights and electrical needs.
