    Jersey in the house!

    Greetings to everyone, first post here, grateful for the forum. I am in my 3rd season of having a IGP, its gunite with a blue marbleize 3m finish added. It is approximately 34k gallons, with a 8 person, spill over spa attached. I have a 4 cartridge type filter, heater and a SWG. I have also added a 12panel, Fafco solar heating system. Its a nice setup in my lil piece of the world out here in southern New Jersey.
    Here are some photos of the construction of the pool, living in a high water table area, the hole filled with water and destabilized the lower portion of the earth walls, and with the time gaps between the various contractors, the skelton caved in. A couple of pizzas with the repair crew and my deep end is a bit bigger than plan!!
    The forum is wonderful. Looking forward to being a part of the community.
    Thanks
    Evan

    Lovely outcome... I would have been crying as that backhoe ripped out all the rebar...

    Welcome to TFP,
    Great looking pool, and I'm envious of your yard (open space).

    Orange and black!!!! Oh no, not the dreaded F-er's!!!!!!!

    I actually like the F-ers (as I used to say when I lived in Jersey/NYC and WAS a Rangers fan). Don't get me started on the Sabres! We have a HockeyTalk section here in the Coffee Bar area.
