    Indiana Pool Finished!

    Here are some construction and finished pics of our pool build in north central Indiana. What a fantastic investment in our family time and we are building great memories daily.

    Thanks TFP for all of the information that you provide to pool owners. The people that hand out advice in the forums are top notch and appreciated.

    Thanks for looking...we love our pool!

    Hardwareguy,
    Nice pool. Who installed it for you? I live about another hour or so west of you and am looking for a good pool builder to do some work on my old pool. Are you glad you spent the money on the auto cover? Do you plan to use it as a winter cover also?

    Thanks,

    Re: Indiana Pool Finished!

    Monkeylove....Pool was installed by "Backyard Pools By Design" out of Fort Wayne. They are a first class operation and did an outstanding job on our pool build.

    Autocover was the single best investment we made in the pool. No need for a winter cover at all as it serves that function very well in the winter.

    hardwareguy,

    Re: Indiana Pool Finished!

    Yes!! Not a single problem. The snow melted and I pumped all the water off the cover....simple as that! At one point this winter, I could not even tell I had a pool other than the diving board and hand rails.

    Any other questions, let me know.

    Great job on the pool. How long does it take to put the pool cover on?

    It takes about 45 seconds to close the cover.

    Hardwareguy,
    How is the pool holding up? Have you had any problems using the auto cover as a winter cover over the last couple of years?
