LOL, it was hard to watch them tear up the lawn but I know the end result will be even better.

Winter cover is in the process of being ordered. Pool should be done just in time to close it up for the winter. We are going with a black aluminum fence.

We decided on the grey mosaic liner from Latham. We started off thinking we wanted a deep blue. Then we started seeing the water color of the tan and grey liners that made us change our mind. Ultimately went with the grey. We really like the water color it creates. For our deck we are going with charcoal grey paver coping and concrete.

The builders came today and installed the walls and did some plumbing. Had our first hiccup. Wrong steps were delivered. Need ones for the cantilever coping. The correct ones should only take a few days to get in. Coming back tomorrow to work on the equipment pad and the electrician comes on Friday.

Actually, our liner has been installed. Just haven't had a chance to update progress. We LOVE the liner and the shades of color we get at different times of the day.

Since my last update, liner has been installed and PB has prepped to have footer poured for our paver coping. Inspector coming today to check bonding before we can proceed. Hoping that goes well.

This is after lots of work was done around perimeter of pool. Pool has a lot of dirt in it and needs to be vacuumed and brushed. Hard to keep up with it. It is a constant battle since it is surrounded by dirt right now and winds blow the dirt in constantly. So the color is not as sharp as it has been.

Thank you! We struggled with the same decision as well. I am sure you will be happy either way as they both create great shades of water colors. In the end, we preferred something a bit darker. That is why we went with the Grey Mosaic.

Have a question I am hoping someone can help me with. The pool builder added foam between the paver coping and concrete deck. I asked when it would be caulked. He said they would come back at opening to clean that joint and caulk. My concern is isn't the caulk there to prevent water from getting into this area that could potentially cause freeze damage? Or is it better to wait because it is too cold to caulk?

It is and it should be sealed. The self leveling sealer needs warmth to lay well. Any sunny 60 degree day left will do fine. If you have a winter cover it will prob be ok for the winter if not I'd seal it

Thanks Jimmy, we are getting a mesh safety cover installed. I am still hoping to talk them into sealing it before then.

Pool build portion is finally finished. Deck poured, fence installed and closed yesterday. Now we have lots of landscaping to work on and the family cannot wait until spring. By the time it was filled we only were able to get in a few times. Glad we built in the fall though so everything is done as soon as the weather breaks.

Hello,

Been lurking around for awhile now as we went through the process of thinking about a pool, interviewing pool builders and then signing our contract. Forum has been an awesome resource during our decision making. Lots of great information! Especially helpful when we were debating our liner choices.

Excavation was last Friday, pool was delivered today and they will begin building the structure tomorrow. Hoping for a smooth process and good weather. Here are some of the specs.

18'x'34'36' Lagoon Shape Vinyl Liner
23,100 Gallons
Pentair VSF Pump
Pentair Clean and Clear 420 sq. ft. cartridge filter

You are very close to me! I'm in Harrisburg. We haven't taken the plunge yet, but have it narrowed to 2 builders if we do decide. Do you mind sharing who is your PB and are you happy with them?
