    Pool is finally done...pics posted

    Hi everyone,
    I've been lurking since they started our pool mid-May. They finally finished about 2 weeks ago. It took almost 4 days to fill it, but it's finally filled and we're swimming!! I'll try to post pics, even though I've never done it before.
    Here are the specifics about our pool:
    Inground "L" shaped vinyl pool
    16’ x 42’ x 32’
    30" Pentair Sand Filter and 1.5 HP Whisper Flow Pentair pump
    2 drains
    6 returns
    2 skimmers
    custom steps
    Tons of fun!!
