After many years of wanting a pool but not sure if it was the right thing to do I finally made the move last summer. Ordered it in June and waited till near end of September for it to be completed. A very rainy summer delayed the company. Well we put in a 18' x 29' humback kidney shaped inground vinyl pool with an add on sauna with the waterfall overfill. We got to swim in it 3 times before the season ended but used the hottub quite a bit until mid october. We opened her up april 23 and although still to cold to swim we use the hot tub almost every night. I will have plenty of questions for you pros. Thanks to the admins for having a board like this, I am so glad I found it.
