    Paver Brands - New Install in NJ

    We decided on Belgard concrete pavers, still in the build process but I will provide good feedback once it’s complete as there isn’t a ton of information on here so we had to just make a call and go with it!

    So, after 3 total days of digging we have a big hole in our yard! I am excited to see how the next steps go. Here are some pictures. Quite a bit of rock (the most my PB has seen in our area in his career he says)

    Jim, now he is saying that pentair is making him order everything separate if I have to have the IC60 which he insisted I didn’t need, but he can get the easytouch Pool and Spa together in a kit, can you tell me the difference between the two as far as what I would be giving up exactly?

    Thank you Jim! finalizing everything now, I’ll update signature with everything once it’s finalized and pictures of the big hole as it’s dug, I’m sure it’s going to look like a disaster area 😳

    We are putting in a fence towards the end of the build, but it will be for the majority of the back yard area. I think we may move it a little closer to the house but our “shop” is going to end up being a finished pool house so we want to have it relatively close to that area too as it will...

    Where I am the pavers done right seem to cost more than stamped concrete, but I think I will be happy if I can find the right type of paver and color etc... I will post more details of the pool and proposed equipment in the morning! Thanks, T
