    OB in NoVA (Dig Starts tomorrow 6/8)

    Well, NoVA had a beautiful day for the last day "of summer"...I am fortunate that we got this done before the season ended. More importantly, my guy ""Barrett" is fully recovered...he had an unfortunate accident a month ago.

    Thanks @kimkats that is exactly what I had planned...I am chasing PH though...I can't get it to stabilize for any amount of time (keeps going high). I have posted the question in the water chemistry thread.

    14x28 rectangle pool-is it big enough?

    I have a Leisure Pool Elegance 26 (see attached spec sheet) but it is 14'6" x 26'3" (interior dimensions). The 14'6" is the bump out for the stairs and seating shelf, 11'6" is only 12'6" wide, we have found that plenty big enough for us. It is just for me and my wife (and occasional visitors...

    We are at the 95% complete stage...just a bit of trim work on the deck and figuring out what we want the path to the equipment pad to look like...we are at day 51 of actual installation so I feel pretty good, I don't know how folks deal with the construction for months upon months.

    Thank does, but I still have a hard time looking past the construction debris that is left over and the "not having the deck" is bothering me...but I am very fortunate to have good friends that are doing the work with me...all in good time.
