    Ideas around oval pool sunken in ground

    I also have buried above ground. Take a look at the pics in my signature. They were from last year. I can send you updated ones if you'd like, although they are pretty much the same. The deck is perfect... just enough to get in and out of. ~Erin

    ABG put inground, pics included

    Thanks guys!! Since I've posted that pic I have rearranged my landscaping. I moved the palms to the back fence and added some banana trees. I'll try to take more pics and post them soon. It's dark out now. I love the look even more... I find myself staring at it all the time. :mrgreen...

    Those pictures don't do it justice. It looks sooo much better on a sunny day!!! The deck's on square pavers at each corner and the two center angles. My fence is 6ft on the sides and front and 8ft along the back. Both gates stay locked. So that's my 'fence around the pool' too.

    Here's today... almost done shocking. Need to cut, weed and straighten up the yard. Gloomy, overcast day. Looks much better when sun is shining!

    When I buried mine I asked the PB about it rotting out. He said it depended on the wetness of the soil at base level. He's seen some that lasted 10+ years and some that only lasted 5. I decided to take my chances. I have clay based soil and I'm not sure how good that is but when they dug it...

    I didn't do anything special with my pump. I hardpiped my lines then ran them underground from pool to pump just like you would do with an inground pool. I have my pump about 40 ft from pool behind my shed. Hope this helps!

    Pool friendly trees

    I'm not an expert but I an avid planter and gardener. I have always been told that bamboo will not spread if it is contained within it's container. If planted in the ground it will spread like crazy. My neighbor has bamboo in two huge pots. I'm talking 4 ft tall by atleast 30in diameter. I...

    here's my crasy idea for a pool

    I've done the same thing with my pool. I have been contemplating the deck for over 2 years. Is that cement around yours? If so, without sounding absolutley dumb, how did you do it? Is it right up to the pool sides or is there a bit of a gap? thanks!

    I love it like this. My only complaint is that I haven't been able to build the deck yet. I also found out that they're now making ABG's out of resin, made for burying. If mine ever fails, collapses or rusts out - resin here I come, unless of course I'm financially able to go gunite!

    weatherproof box for stereo

    Also, If you're a DIYer you may be able to build a box out of plexiglass, hinge one of the sides. Turn it upside down over your equipment, hinged side to the front and voila!! You could leave the hinged side open while using and close it for the night.

    weatherproof box for stereo

    What kind of system do you have inside? The reason I ask is bc I have an indoor receiver with 2 zones. Zone one is for inside/TV/DVD etc... Zone 2 is for outside. I have 2 hard wired speakers under the patio cover but you can also use wireless speakers out there. When I want outdoor music...

    Pic Request

    Look at my avatar pic. It's of my AG pool. I have the blue swirl in the liner. I absolutely love it and love the way it sparkles. My neighbor has a lighter blue and it just isn't as sparkling. Hope this helps a bit.

    I sawed off the outside legs. Since then I've added a few pavers to make a stepping pad for ladder. I have been waiting 2 years to do the deck... hopefully I can get it done sometime this year. The vision is there just not the wood!
