Life's Too Short--Build A Pool! - Done!

Our pool was begun on August 6 and completed on September 10 for a total of 35 days--not bad considering all the rain delays. Business, yard work, laziness, and enjoying the pool have taken priority over posting the final pictures of pool development.

Here is the yard before and after.



Below is a brief gallery of the process since the gunite was applied:

Plaster is mixed on the truck and runs through a hose to the back yard.


Plaster is sprayed onto the gunite surface.


The plaster is smoothed to dark blue perfection.


The last step prior to filling the pool with water is acid wash. I was happy to see this gentleman arrive.


The hose is turned on full blast to fill the pool, starting at 10:30 a.m.


Here it is half-full at 6:00 p.m.


We turned off the water to the pool overnight then resumed filling the next morning. Here it is at 10:30 a.m., being cleaned by a happy hubby.


In the meantime, this awaited us.


My next post will be about the ongoing yard renovation.
