Hi y'all are??
Near Baton Rouge, LA here, for those who might care...
Thanks to SEAN for building this forum... not too many "good" pool forums around. Truly a need to be filled. Thank you, Sean!!
I feel like I know a few of you already. I watched Sean's pool build on thepoolforum, but couldn't register... so just had to watch silently... and recognize a few of you from there and from other places as well. We've been talking to pb's since December, and finally settled on one in March.
Seemed relatively difficult to find one who felt comfortable doing what we (I) wanted.... and when we (I) wanted. Plenty of demand around here, especially this time of the year. Hoping we picked the right one... seems good so far.
Started digging 2 weeks ago today, steel the followiing Saturday, and concrete on Monday (5 days ago now).
Ran an electric line to my pad this week, and I had the gas line ran yesterday.
Here's what I'm planning on us having:
approx 500 sq' pool, 100' perimeter, 21000 gallons?, 3'-6'
hot tub, old brick veneer (hopefully to match house), 2 tier spillover
old brick coping
plaster still unkown
tile still unkown
decking... faux finish on koolkrete (I think)
2 deck jets
pentair cartr filter
pentair 450 btu heater
another pump something
pentair legend cleaner
We'll see how it turns out.
Good or bad... most of my knowledge has come from forums like this... pretty hard to get good info ANYWHERE else.
I'll try to post some pics (on my first post, no less.... don't expect to really see pics!)
