    Did the pool company forget my SWG?

    Our pool install has been so slow, but we are finally getting there. A couple weeks ago they installed this system, and frankly I'm only just now really looking at it.

    Houston new build - budget question

    I'm new to the site, and I have been trying to educate myself on the pool build process. You guys have been VERY helpful. I'm in the process of contacting pool builders (3 so far) and waiting for return calls for an in-ground installation. Before I actually get on the phone, I have a budget...
