Nice! Welcome to the forum. You know you're gonna need a TF100 test kit closer to finishing. When is it gonna be ready for all of us to stop in for a swim?

Hey All!

First week is under wraps ... we have something that actually looks like a pool!

Back yard is a mud pit right now ... we have had a lot of rain the past couple days ... Lola is loving it!
