    After a lot of thinking on it, i finally signed a contract today with a PB.

    This is going to be a huge investment, but the more I thought on it, i feel like this is something my children will enjoy growing up, and hopefully we'll continue to enjoy it on into retirement age with my wife and future grandchildren. There are other options i have to add or replace certain...

    Stamped concrete vs Pavers vs ???

    I'm still in the process of getting quotes from builders to build a pool, but playing with the idea of doing stamped concrete. I've already had two builders tell me it's worth it to just by-pass doing stamped concrete and pay the extra money for pavers instead. I may end up having to just...

    Pool with Kids

    I've lived in one house that was inside a neighborhood where the houses were close together. Even though i did not mind it all that much since everyone in the neighborhood at the time were good people, but after that move, i'll never live in a close house neighborhood again. I enjoy being able...

    WHAT!!! If their gunite pools start at $110K for only 650 sq ft. he's smoking crack!

    Thoughts on this quote i just got..... reasonable or high ??

    I thought about trying to be the GC myself, but i'd rather have someone else to blame and hold responsible for fixing anything that was not done correctly. If i had experience in building things, I'd give it a go, but i have little to no knowledge when it comes to building structures with the...

    Why would an insurance company require someone to fence in 100 acres for a swimming pool in their backyard? LOL All building codes for swimming pools in my area do require a small fence around the pool itself, but nothing more.

    Thoughts on this quote i just got..... reasonable or high ??

    I did find another local pool builder that is going to come out next week and give me a quote, but he only does vinyl liner pools, and i'm just really uneasy about a liner pool for the reasons i listed above.

    Thanks guys..... I'm in Polkville, NC. I do commercial poultry farming for my business and live on the same property as my chicken houses. I have a couple hundred acres of forestry right behind my house and we own 3 dogs. Lots of wild life go straight through our backyard, plus all the trees...

    They use Hayward equipment. Yes, i will have to do fencing and I've already figured out i will want to add a good bit more concrete into this. If i decide to run gas, it won't be that much more since i already have it hooked up to my house, plus i give them thousands and thousands of dollars...

    Thoughts on this quote i just got..... reasonable or high ??

    No, but the problem is, he is the only person i have found in my area that will do a concrete pool. Everyone else that i've found so far only does vinyl liner pools, and i'm just really unsure about putting in a liner pool (even though it would be a lot cheaper up front).

    Anyone regret building a vinyl liner pool vs concrete or fiberglass?

    I was all over these forums last year, gathering information, and reading as much as i could on pool builds. The pros and cons of concrete vs vinyl pools. I even talked with a couple PB's and got some quotes last summer. Just could not pull the trigger yet, because the shape and design i...

    New Build w Retaining Wall- NC

    bouncing off a trampoline into a pool, i'd want a lot deeper than 8 feet. A trampoline sounds fun, (thought about that myself when i decide to build a pool), but i'd want like a 10 foot deep end. The spring coming off a trampoline + the height of it already above the pool itself would make for...

    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.
