So long story short, we built a pool in Maryland last year and I got an offer to move overseas, etc and we took it, now we are in Puerto Rico (very close to family)... We sold the house pre covid-19 (fortunately) and we were able to get about 75-80% of what I paid for the pool so that was better than nothing.

We did a diy pool in the low $40k here are the details:

bench seating at deep end and behind waterfalls


Plumbing

1 skimmer
2 main drain
1 spa drain
All piping is 2" sch40

Equipment
