You know what? You can go ahead and fill in your signature. Put in kind of pool (vinyl, plaster, inground, above ground), size in gals (we will dial that in later if needed),kind of filter, and what test kit you have.

If you do not have a test kit yet NOW is the time to get it. Ask your PB which one he will provide. Let us know so we can fill in any holes.

What is next and when?

Nice 3 skimmers and 7 returns!

How many floor returns of those? 3 infloor and 4 on top then?

A roof with our nutty north east weather would be awesome overcthat kitchen area? I know you prob thought about it but throwing it out there.

We are eventually thinking of doing either a pergola style roof over it or doing a full roof. Did not want to go through the permit nor allocate additional budget towards it at this time. We figured its something we can always add.

As far as returns, i definitely have something in the floor of the deep end (cant see because the pool is currently covered allowing the vermiculite to cure) and then 7 "jets" around the pool. Stupid question, are jets and returns the same thing?


Right now schedule is as follows

Kitchen equipment being delivered tomorrow
electric 1 day next week
liner shortly after that (as soon as it comes in)
then fill :)

patio/kitchen will start right after pool has been tested for 7-10 days of running and no issues found.

Current open items
choosing a pool robot (leaning towards the dolphin)
finalize lighting around landscape/kitchen
granite


been doing a ton of reading on this site, seems like an amazing resource.

You can hop onto PoolMath - Trouble Free Pool and get a close guess to the gallons. We will dial the size when it is all done.

Yeah check on the test kit. We had one PB that provided a USED sample bottle of guess test strips :roll: NOT what you want to try to use to keep a pool well balanced!!
