Hello all! I'm new to the forum and just began a new pool build. This is all happening very quickly. I spent a few weeks getting quotes and chose a pool builder on Wednesday of last week and gave a deposit. I was told to expect 2-3 weeks for permit approval by my town and then a few weeks before digging would begin. My permit was surprisingly signed off on two days later on Friday and my PB had equipment and crew available to start excavation on Monday. So digging and formation is now complete and the steel walls are being assembled today as well as electrical. I hope this will be fun and informative for you and a helpful forum for me should I need advice.
