    Building our own pool

    I've been checking this site out for a few weeks as we prepare for our pool building.
    Found very good info all over. I'm sure I'll have some questions as we get started.
    Meanwhile here's what we're planning: 96 ft perimeter free form IG with 8 ft dia spa. Going with a bunch of Pentair equipment, including Intelliflo pump, Intellichlor, and Easy touch controller that I can now afford after throwing all the PB's estimates in the trash. Wish me luck.
    Can hopefully post some pics of the dig next week.
