    That's an amazing amount done in one day! I laughed seeing the guy in the bucket -- good idea (don't tell OSHA).

    Dang! That pool looks bigger than the house!

    Very nice pool. What size is it?

    I also liked the idea of the guy in the bucket to do the troweling.

    One question for everyone though. With the sand underneath on this style inground do you get foot prints and the usual problems under the liner?

    Your PB is one organized dude. I don't recall that much progress in one day on any pool build on this forum.

    The work looks nice as well.

    I agree with others and am amazed at amount of work done in one day.

    I also laughed at the guy troweling from the bucket.

    Masonary cement? I thought it had to be sand, one of the reasons I did not like this style. I saw this in the install instructions on one of the websites for these pools.

    Does the cement wear out the liner with the surface? Or is it so smooth that it does not wear it?

    Amazing one day progress! My pool is 18 x 36, but I'd sure love to have the larger shallow end the L gives you.

    Re: !st day of install

    That's gonna be really nice!

    No chance of footprints... just hope the guy doesn't fall out of the bucket! That would leave a big dent! 8)

    I like your steps on the 'top' of the short leg of the L, rather than at the end! Gives a nice tidy feel to an otherwise really huge pool!!

    Just an update not much going on the last two days, just alot of gravel back fill against all the walls. Other than that waiting for the PB to Dig another pool near by and bring in alot of fill from that pool to level things off. No big deal we didn't plan on opening the pool this year as it is getting very cold hear at night(frost).
