    I won't be undergoing a project as big as yours. Simple 16x24 pool on a 25x32 deck. Still challenging nonetheless. My granddaughter is ready for the project to get done. Ordering my plans next week.

    Awesome start! How many gals do you think it will hold. Now would be a good time to up date your signature (setting-upper right, edit signature-middle left). Put in your pool type and size (gals) as well and equipment kind and size.

    It's sunstone from npt. It's even prettier in person. Pictures defintely don't show all the colors that it has.

    Is sunstone the color or the tile family?

    I couldn't find it on NPT's website.

    I think lagoon is the color of the tile family. I had a hard time finding it online as well. We actually had a contractor bring by samples and he had it with him.

    I'm thinking maybe they have replaced the sunstone with the arctic. But our local pool supply place was able to order the sunstone. The arctic is a lot more blue than the sunstone.

    I thought you were asking how many women the pool would hold when you asked how many gals. Which I thought was a little sexist coming from you! LOL. I guess I need more coffee.
