Looks great. Also great start on your Signature. No where in there do you address how you will be chlorinating your pool water. Hopefully you have read through the TFPC site and see the advantages that a SaltWater Chlorine Generator provides.

I’m going with Trichloro Tabs. We had a SCG on our pool and did not like the results.

Good luck. Hopefully your water is really cheap. You will need to drain quite a bit each month to keep the pool clean.

Can you expand on your comment regarding the results you did not like? Many people on this forum are always debating using liquid chlorine vs SWCG.

On our previous pool we started with tabs and moved to a SWCG after a couple of years, but we had numerous cells burn up on us, some were covered under warranty but not all, then we had issues with algae. I never had an issue with tabs so I went back to them. I had a sports pool that got a lot of sun, but I don’t know if that had anything to do with it, as far as the algae.

For you engineers out there, here are the foundation plans. (Yes, we did do a core soil sample, two locations, down to 20 feet) The good news is no piers are required. :cool:

sidenote: Uh? What gives with that neighbor's ugly run of fence???

I love that roll edge on the size of the pool. Its gonna be gorgeous! Has the PB tried to change any prices since all the building supplies are up now?

He is a really nice guy, but is fighting with the HOA about that. We will plant something tall to “remove” it from our view…..
The pool builder has not changed any prices, but we did have to add some more pumps, for the spa and we will have another $1,000.00 to pay for the footers, but that is way better than the estimated $20,000.00 for peers that the PB thought we might need. :whoot:
