    EcoFinish Aqua Bright Blue Mist

    I would like to know how long the original AquaBright finish lasted on your pool before having to re-do it? I've been talking to PB's in my area (i'm in a small town) and nobody has even heard of AquaBright. I've read a little bit about it online and it sounds like good stuff. Sorry, your...

    Gfci breaker keeps tripping

    If you don't know what you're doing when it comes to electrical boxes and wiring, you definitely need to call an electrician. I see several problems already in your box.

    Help me decide between two bids

    Question.... I'm actually getting quotes myself for a 20x40 and 18x40 freeform pools. I want a diving area, and my PB quoted me for only 8' deep. He said i could go deeper if i wanted, but would do two things.... One add to the cost, and two it would make my slope longer which would cut into...

    Letting people use your personal pool when you are not home?

    I'd like to make a recommendation for you, that might help your battle with this. Have your fiance come on here and read all the comments from pool owners that don't even know you or him personally. The best/honest advice to get on subjects are from people that don't know anything about you...

    Letting people use your personal pool when you are not home?

    Excuse my french, but F that! I'm in the stages of getting quotes to install a pool in my backyard, but my grandparents had a pool when i was growing up, AND i grew up on the lake, so we had that in my backyard instead of a pool. My parents never let anyone come over to swim if we weren't home...

    Talking with PB about freeform designs and i have a question

    How in the world did you go from 18x36 to 20x40 for only $500!?? 😲 My quote for a 20x40 rectangle liner is right at $42k and 20x40 freeform concrete quote is $64K. He did quote me an 18x36 freeform concrete for $57K. I was amazed at the price jumps. My PB said i'd get 700 sq ft out of a...

    Talking with PB about freeform designs and i have a question

    If i went with a liner pool, i could do a 20 x 50, or that Lagoon pool i posted a picture of, but concrete is another story. The liner pool just really scares me. I know there are tons of people that have them, i just don't feel comfortable dumping large sums of money into a liner pool. 😟

    Talking with PB about freeform designs and i have a question

    Yeah, i could basically do any shape or size i want if the money allowed for it. Room is not my issue, i just don't have 100K to spend on a pool. 😉

    Talking with PB about freeform designs and i have a question

    what would you guys say is a good area for shallow in a pool? something like 10' x 18' enough or really need more?

    Talking with PB about freeform designs and i have a question

    Okay, sorry guys, i went back and looked at the table and my piece of paper where i did my drawing and figuring. That 12' minimum before your slope starts is for a 9' deep end pool. I guess i'll have to research a little more or wait on my PB to get back up with me so i can figure how much is...

    Talking with PB about freeform designs and i have a question

    That makes me feel better about the dogs, if for some reason i can't budget what i want in a concrete pool and have to go with a liner to get exactly what i want. Can you explain to me how the deep end can change between pool designs? I thought there were minimal requirements all PB's...

    Talking with PB about freeform designs and i have a question

    Newdude, that does not really make sense to me. The "diving envelope" should not change regardless of pool shape and over all length. Technically, your friend's pool should just loose out on the shallow end of his pool. Both your pools should have the same "diving envelope" assuming both 8'...
