This is my pool, it is the first time I go trough the process. I had a very rough time with my PB and I can tell you I would not recommend them and wouldn't deal with them ever again. They are a very large PB and my dissatisfaction resulted from several factors. Some were outside of their control but as a whole, the process was not easy for me and they didn't make it any easier. By the time they started I was out of town a lot and was not able to see the progress for myself every day. The pool build took a total of almost 4 months from contract to completion.
If I had known about poolforum.com when I started this whole ordeal, I know I would have done things differently but I didn't come across that site until my pool was almost finished. I am so glad others have taken the time to start these other forums for those of us who were unable to register and contribute to the PF.
So here are some of the pictures my wife took of the progress:
This is the outline before those huge pine tress came down
Framing (Is that what you call it?)
Plumbing and Metal work
Coping and Tile
Plaster and filling
The pool filled in about a day
We planted more tress on the back of the yard for privacy but this is pretty much how it looks.
