We are finally on the schedule for a winter build hopefully starting in the next couple of weeks. But first we have to take down our existing fence and have some trees taken out. We setup a temporary pen to give our indoor dogs an area out of the future mud.

16x32 rectangular vinyl liner with 2' radius corners
Concrete cantilever coping
4' shallow, 7' deep (no diving board {maybe slide})
2 main drains, 3 returns, 1 skimmer, 2" plumbing
Saltwater (IC-40)
Cartridge filter
VS Pump
LED light
(very iron rich well water)



Edit:
I know everyone here (my self included!) love pictures. So I created an album. As I post pictures to TFP, I will also update the album

I requested the environmental health inspection ($150) today (required b/c we have a septic system). Once we have that report, we can apply for a building permit.

looking forward to seeing the progress on the pool as it comes along. Ever since I started my pool I’ve spent a lot of time on here and have learned a lot!
It may get worse. I go to customers houses all day and im obsessed with what kind of pool they did with what features. And why. And what they would have changed after the fact.
**ding dong** hi, yeah, yeah, i'm here to install/repair XYZ, but i saw your pool and its BEAUTIFUL. Would you mind showing it to me first ? (Best part is most people like talking about their pools more than i like hearing it and seeing them so almost everybody jumps at the chance)

Fence came down yesterday. We Jerry rigged a cattle chute for the dogs when the come down the ramp off the deck. They are not going to be too excited to see people working in our back yard. I imagine the dogs will be very jealous of their hole digging abilities. Still waiting on the tree guy and health department.

The dogs thought procces was fun to watch he thought the hole was the greatest thing ever. The summer heat caked the outside of my concrete shell while leaving the inside mushy so it took 9 extra days to cure. He got used to having it as a play area. When we filled it with water it blew his mind even more.

We keep going back and forth on the slide. Our builder says that most people get board with them. I don't know. What say people here?
I can't speak from experience, but I know our kids and I am confident between them and their friends it will get plenty of use. We also figured it would be much cheaper now to run the plumbing. If we never use it or get a slide, no big deal. But if we wanted to add one after the fact it would be much more expensive.
