This is my tenth seaon and I am still in love with my pool. It was a very easy build, a little unusual from most in that mine is a conglomeration of parts and pieces. My pool builder used the best pieces from all his past experiences to piece together the best product he could produce. Rather than kit pool walls (steel or plastic) he used concrete. He and I both shared a concern of burying metal in the ground and I am so fortunate to have found him. The entire process took a little over two months starting in March of 2000. For anyone wondering, Shawnee, KS is a suburb of Kansas City.
