    Not so New Pool Build - TX

    Unfortunately I found you guys after I built the pool, but luckily before I took over the chemicals. I am finally getting around to posting the build with pics, so here goes. I did already replace the dump Polaris (Steve) for a robot (Norm). Steve would just find his corner and stay there, geez. And feel free to poke fun of my Ozone. But if it kills just one flesh eating bacteria, it might have been worth getting.

    Current water:
    FC - 7
    CC - 0
    PH - 7.6
    CH - 270
    TA - 70
    CYA - 40

    Before Dig



    Dig Day



    Steel and Plumbing




    Gunite Shoot



    Stone guys came by




    Had them put a grill in also



    Sand came yay



    Regraded



    A Deck finally





    And they forgot the umbrella sleeves after I handed them over and told them where to put them.




    Laying Sod - 4 pallets by myself (Ouch!!) The builder just could not get their guy to come so I got a refund and did it myself.




    Plaster and Acid Wash








    A blow torch ??




    Random rock I found in the huge pile during cleanup:




    Fill






    Equipment turned on - I am having a panick attack when I see this green water.





    Equipment pad







    Bliss








    Landscaping - I have a long way to go I know.




    A little bit of color variation in the plaster. I kind of like it. It seems more natural

    J,

    Great looking pool, thanks for the pics...

    I have only got one question...

    How did you get all the dirt off the roof that appears to be there in the 12th pic down??

    I love boxers...

    Thanks for posting,

    Jim R.
