    Use photobucket (or something similar) and just attach the image URL from there. Then you can post as many pics as you would like.

    Re: New Pool Construction in Southern Indiana (Near Louisville)

    You did a great job posting the pics. THANKS!

    Any idea when they are going to come bond your pool?

    Is that fishing water?

    Do you have to put up a fence?

    Have you ordered your test kit yet? The ones we use and love are in my siggy below.

    Re: New Pool Construction in Southern Indiana (Near Louisville)

    By bond, I assume that means the electrical grounding? I just found this site yesterday, so I am a little late to the game... I thought the electrician was supposed to be out today, but I haven't heard from him.

    Yes, that is fishing water behind the house

    No fence this year. Plan on getting one maybe next year, but we will be 'legal' with the automatic cover.

    No test kit yet, but will probably get the TF-100

    Very nice, thanks for sharing. It looks like you may have neighbors calling since I don't see other pools! Look forward to seeing the completed project.

    They poured half of the decking today. If the rain holds off, 2nd half tomorrow...

    Forgive my ignorance, but are you talking about the cover for the Skimmer? I guess I could just paint it. They're out pouring the 2nd half now...

    Re: New Pool Construction in Southern Indiana (Near Louisville)

    The construction is so NEAT and clean .. almost zen like! Deck color is awesome. If we had a colored deck like yours in AZ, it probably will glow red hot during our summer months!

    BTW, what's the pipe that is sticking out of the cover box (with a red tip)?

    Oh no, don't paint it. You and both know the paint will come off. Look at the pretty ones I found for you. LOL

    I believe that is just a can of Pam. Hahahaha. I think they're using it for the coping mold so it comes off easy.

    Those are nice! Will need to find one that fits since the deck is already done

    LOL! It does look like a capped off pipe! Kinda got me all confused, though!
