    Getting Excited

    The pool builder will be here tomorrow and I am excited and restless.
    After 7 years with INTEX we finally bought a hard sided pool.
    I stopped at Home Depot and bought all the PVC to plumb it up and will be putting the pipe in the ground since the filter will sit 7 feet away.
    New GFCI 20 amp circuit was run yesterday so no more extension cords
    I will get some pictures to post as it goes up.

    Congrats! Is it safe to assume you already have one of the recommended test kits on-hand or on order?

    You can keep the feeder just do not put any pucks in it. Save them for weekend trips. Just so long as you are aware of what they will do to your CYA.

    Re: Getting Excited

    Yes that was just 2 men.
    There is a 5 store pool company in my area that refers this and one other company to do all of their installs.
    In the season they said they do 2 pools a day.

    Not yet we need to get the deck moved back in place first since We use a deck mounted stair system.
