    hello from mizzou

    hello everyone stumbled upon this site today looking for sites on building my own pool. Cant be that hard huh. Well Ive got the pick and shovel ready and am staring at the pristine yard I have nurtured for the last 7 years and after a few cold ones decided that a 20x40 pool would go there pretty nicely so here it goes and if anybodys got any advice chime on in I'll probably need all the help I can get
