    1st Pool Build | Sugar Land - 06/09 Deck Pour Take 2

    glad the PB is addressing the issue! Those gaps are big. Just keep watch on the subs and if anything seems odd, text your PM right away. The subs are working fast these days because of the amount of work and rain delays so their attention to detail is lacking.

    2 days and 17100 gallons of water later, here are our pictures of blue surf with shimmering sea. These are pictures without the pool start up. The PB will come on Tuesday to do that. I think the color changes a little once the chemicals are put in. It is a little murky to me right now. Enjoy. =)

    And now it’s raining…this pool fill is stressing me out. It’s 10:30PM and only half way filled…started at 12:30 this afternoon. With the rain, I think I need stop the fill around 4 in the morning! 🤦🏽‍♀️

    i did take a picture 😊. The PB said they will be here first thing Tuesday morning to do pool start up. I need to brush twice a day once completely full. I have no clue how to turn anything on. I did speak with our PB and he said all will be fine 🤷🏽‍♀️

    Water has slowly been filling…the guys acid washed the pool this morning and then started filling…will the dirt at the bottom of the pool eventually come off? I am assuming yes…that’s why we need to scrub the pool after?

    Thanks! @HermanTX and @ajw22 I texted my PB last night - they know to use the auto fill water bib instead of the bib in front of the pool. I’ll be here today so will remind them again. Thanks again!!

    New Pool in Houston, TX

    My husband and I were wondering what happened with your pool. Thank you for the update. I hope they were able to correct it today (it is nice and hot and dry today!) I hope the rain stops as well! We did plaster today so hopefully we should be done in a week or so!
