    New build

    Hi all we began building our new swimming pool on Monday 3/6 and we are excited we will post some before pictures soon (haven't learned how yet on here) along with the progress. We are curious if there are any extra cost that come up during construction or anything else we should prepare for?

    Welcome to TFP Rodriguez

    As to your question- there is always room for additional costs. Hopefully they won't be too scary.

    My suggestions always include get *more* decking than you think you need! That was an extra cost we chose to undertake during the build for example.

    I would also suggest you ditch that Nature2 device and stick with a basic SWG. Nature2 adds metals to your water which can be very problematic down the road with stains. Do a search on here for them if you need to read more about them.

    The best thing you can do is post a picture of the design and post your equipment with sizes and models listed so we can make sure your stuff will be big enough for your pool.

    Pictures-if you become a supporting member you will be able to add picture right to the picture gallery AND get a discount on a GOOD testing kit!
