New Pool build in South Houston
I am very excited to write to you all for the first time. I started thinking of building a pool almost a year ago, and discovered this group 8 or 9 months ago. It has been an incredible resource, and it has helped tremendously. I've learned about everything from pump efficiency curves (appeals to the engineer in me) to the vagaries of tile selection. We followed lots of your advice and have found a pool builder that we love (so far). We have gotten to the point where we have a large gunite coated hole in my backyard and a really cool gunite waterfall/slide/cave next to it, and lots of plumbing messing up my yard. We are scheduled to start tile/coping on Monday. My pool's stats are:
