Omg, the excavation is about to begin! PB said Tuesday or Thursday but I really didn't think they would be here because so far communication hasn't been great. But they pulled up at 7:45am and are about to spray then dig.

Thank you. I wasnt sure if that was the norm or not but I guess it's a good thing. I'm a little upset though because the route into the yard that I was told they would use turned out to be too small so they came up with another way but at the expense of my privacy hedges and damage to the trees next to my deck. The branches were too low so they knocked them off with excavator but damaged a little of the trees. Hopefully they'll be fine after I have the branches cut down properly.

Underground utilities usually have to be marked beforehand, but I assume that was already covered. Looks like you had a big clean slate in that area. Yeah, messing up landscaping is an unfortunate collateral damage associated with a pool build. Hope everything else turns out ok for you though.

We have just decided we want a slide. Should we plumb for it or just use a hose?Won't actually get it until next year. Will there be a pipe sticking up out of deck until then?

Use your new TF-100 and test your fill water for pH, TA & CH.

Where are you getting your initial fill water from? House, well, or water truck?
