I just got a call from an Ohio number asking if they could set up a delivery drop off tomorrow? I asked her, What is it? She said.... It looks like an above ground pool! :mrgreen: Ohhhhh happy day! :whoot:Best news I've heard since my pool was destroyed. AND it's being delivered just in time for a special someone's birthday on May 16th! She's turning 7 years old!

You had better have it all put together and filled for her!
It's never fun looking at your present in a box and not being able to play with it.
Wish I lived closer to you, I'd volunteer to come help.

Wrap it then. The suprise will be so much better if you gave her the full disclaimers that the pool might not come anytime soon. Does Her Highness know she has a bunch of us internet strangers wrapped around her finger too ?

She knows that I come here to help other people with their pools. And yes... those people will still be there at work. Lol

Pool came today at 1300 on the nose! I was afraid to leave it sitting at the road so I took the packing off n got the dolly n moved it to the pool site. Had to ask the neighbor to help me sit the wall up. I'll be checking the book to see if a weekend is open for install.

Just got a message on FB from a guy I worked a housing unit with (he's now a Lieutenant). He's going to come out Saturday morning n help me. I told him any time we're off together, he n his wife can come use the pool because he helped me. So glad because my neighbor backed out n I can use all the help I can get.

nice do as much as you can before hand. on another note, my daughter came out and said remember when our pool had a design on the bottom? we used to have Portafina. only on the sides and under the steps.

Just changed the name of the thread to New Pool Install. Pool is going up tomorrow 5/23/20. Were going to start about 0900-1000.

I went in the basement n grabbed the old beaded track I originally bought with the first pool that I never used. I dont think I can use it because the top of it is to thick to fit into my stabilizer bars. I just don't think I can use it so I'm probably going to scrap the idea of using it all together n just use the jhook liner like I did last time.
I went out last night n cleaned the base of the pool floor of all debris from the last 2 weeks of wind blown Crud that accumulated on it. I'm probably going to have to drain the little bit of rain water that's in it so I can set the liner n move it around.

Suppose to have 3 other people helping me. We'll see how that goes. I'll keep ya'll updated.

Birthday was on the 16th but I seriously have a deadline by Sunday to have it put up. I can't be taking off to much time from the prison. Monday being a Holiday is out. My next off days are Wednesday/Thursday. You really aren't that far n if my son doesn't show up tomorrow, I could really use your help tomorrow if you're serious?
