Boats all sold and pool ordered! 18 x 36 IG vinyl from pool warehouse. Its going to be a DIY as I am a glutton for punishment! Gonna see if I can get any work out of my 14 yr old in the process. Lots of good info here.
Excavation begins soon. 3 others in the area have contracted their's out and think I'm asking for it but for me the best way to know its done right is to do it yourself. Engineer in me I guess. Tried to upgrade on pool equipment while saving on labor hoping to put those savings in concrete around the pool and finishing touches that will get used more. We will see how it goes. Pending delivery on May17, shooting for June 17 jump in day.

Welcome to the forum!

That's seems like a common and good approach for DIY'ers and OB's alike.
