Yay decking... :) You guys are doing a great job... :) It really give the pool a whole new look... :)

I kept telling Jim that the steps look so weird where they are. I'm not used to it! lol I worked so hard to get those steps moved so I could take my granddaughter in the pool without help and I must've done a pretty good job because I didn't need Jimmy's help and we went right in. I need more bleach bottles on those steps though. My granddaughter and I had a very nice swim yesterday. :mrgreen:

I had heard of people putting PVC tubes in as weights. I think they filled them with concrete and let it set up with one end off until they knew it was cured. Easy to get in and out, easy to clean, cheap to make.

I'm a cheapo at this point! I have so many bleach jugs laying around, and sand cost $3 a bag at Lowes... I can't go wrong. I will look into a better set up next year. I probably won't even mess with the jugs of sand this year.

I would worry about the plastic of the jug breaking down over time and the sand leaking out. I bet it could work for a while though!

Oh God... I ran out of deck boards today and I'm kinda glad! I'm so beat!!! I worked all day long and need maybe 6 more deck boards to be done with the floor of the deck. It looks so nice!!! It's bigger than I thought! I told Jimmy that's a nice big deck he has there! He laughed... I'll post pics in a minute.

That looks GREAT!

Love the dogs! Have they tried to get in yet?

Kim
They've been on the deck but haven't been in. They arent enthusiastic about water.
