    Vinyl Liner Pool near Pittsburgh (install and pictures)

    Hi all, I am somewhat new to this forum, but did use it as a resource.

    We started off by putting a pretty large retaining wall in and removing a substantial amount of earth.



    I have more pictures of the actual pool installation at home, but not on me.

    We decided to go with Gold Pebble liner color as I was looking for a more natural color - blue/green or Caribbean.









    Starting to fill:









    Starting to take on that "soapy" blue color that I was hoping for.





    Getting a little help from the rain.



    Take a little break for a quick (and cool) swim.



    Some more help.



    Ok, that's enough!!!



    2 minutes later...



    How it sits today.



    We have electrical finishing up today, fence this weekend, and hopefully concrete next week. I will keep updating this thread with picture updates. Thanks for looking!

    Mr. Wolfe

    Love the different shades of color the liner gives the water - so pretty!

    Gorgeous colour! I like the grey steps as well, I've never seen them that colour. Looks great so far.

    Thank you. We wanted the grey steps and coping just so they wouldn't stand out so much. We also went with a powder-coated grey ladder instead of the chrome version. Now if I could just find a grey diving board...

    Thanks and absolutely. The kids are the main reason for the pool. So many of my childhood memories involved our pool growing up.

    They are not cheap. I had a pretty good hookup and it was still incredibly expensive. The color of the liner is Gold Pebble. It literally looks like pebbles, but as you can see from a distance, it takes on a brown tone. I wanted a liner that gave no false blues. i.e., the color of the water is a natural blue - not what you see through the liner. Thanks all for the compliments.

    Love the shape! Looks like what we are putting in. Hoping to start in a couple weeks and the liner is my most difficult decision! I keep going back and forth between gray or tan. I love your photos - very pretty water!!

    Mr. Wolfe,

    Have you thought about a jumping rock????????? I think it would fit in with your colors and area better than a board!

    Good luck with the pool. We thought about gray as well. Our final decision was to use the gold pebble because it looks like the concrete aggregate that will be around the pool. Either way, brown or gray will look good!

    Hi Kim, I have thought about the jumping rock. To be honest, I kind of forgot about it. I do prefer the look of them. Here is a picture of one of the pools that was my inspiration. Same shape, same liner and steps, and it has a jumping rock!

    Yes, but most of those pictures were taken while it was raining so it did look slightly cloudy. Here are some pictures I just took a couple of minutes ago.

    Your pool color is gorgeous! I think it looks so natural. If we decide to go with a tan liner, it will be because of pictures like yours. Thanks for sharing!

    Re: Vinyl Liner Pool near Pittsburgh (install and pictures)

    It reminds me of Barton Springs in Austin, TX - one of my favorite places growing up. Breathtaking in beauty and cold water! Last time I went several years ago, it was not the same. They were letting all the weed grow throughout the pool and the scum build on the floor.

    So please, don't let that happen to your pool!!! LOL!!!! Congratulations on such a gorgeous pool! Take care. Suz.

    Re: Vinyl Liner Pool near Pittsburgh (install and pictures)

    Wow, thanks for the love guys! I will admit that going with a tan liner takes a little guts as everyone in my family (along with my friends) questioned me about it. Now that the water is in, it is exactly how I envisioned it - maybe even better. I will most certainly keep updating this thread with new pictures. I am laying out the concrete today as my concrete guy is coming to give a final quote. Hopefully he can start next week. The electric will be finished today so minus concrete, it should be a working pool.
