    now a boulder expert.

    Hi,
    I'm new to this pool thing. I'm having a pool built for me, but I ran into rocks. Lots of rocks. Perhaps it is one big rock.
    I have been drilling rocks for over a month.
    I drill holes, fill them with Dexpan, wait, remove pieces of rock, repeat.
    I'm starting a build thread.

    I'm in Ramona, just outside San Diego, CA.
    18x36x8'deep.

    HI! Welcome to TFP! Does not sound like you have been having much fun in the last month Too bad you do not already have the pool to jump into after all of that work!

    I had to go look up Dexpan. That is some neat stuff! Does it really work like they say/show? Can you take a few pics of doing it one time please?

    I am going to look for your build thread now!

    Welcome!

    That sounds terrible, but it ought to make having a pool extra sweet. Good luck, and this should be an interesting build.
