We will use solar panels from Costco which we read about on this site.
We are from Florida but are building in the Caribbean where most pools there are built using concrete blocks but we will build ours by using forms and pouring the walls.
The pool will be connected to an existing patio and suspended on a foundation with columns and beams since we are building on a slope.
We started the excavation for our concrete above ground L-shape pool on May 21st.
We welcome your comments and suggestions.
Here are some pics.
