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.

Good luck with your build!

I'm about halfway through my self-contract build too...I'll be saving $20k to $25k. I have a link to my build post in my sig. Let me know if you have any questions.
