Decided to go with Seasonal World. So far it's been a very good experience. We are building a liner pool and the dig date is set for this March.

Like the design and shape of the pool! Know you will enjoy!

I posted this pic on another thread but here is a live pic of a lagoon (looks like you have an Oasis there) with the 2nd step tanning ledge or what we call a SpaDeck!

Make sure to get returns around the shelf to blow off debris.

We are a little north of NJ but have seen and heard good things about Seasonal world

Thanks for the info Jay, i'll find out how they have designed the returns.

Well, the dig day was last Friday. Here are some pictures of what three guys and a bucket loader can do to your lovely lawn in a few hours.

Just a few minutes of fun!

RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

They quickly got bored of digging in the dirt and decided concrete would be more fun...

RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

I never thought I'd miss that old nasty patio, until I saw this...

This used to be a lawn...

Now that's a hole!

Next step is building the form for the cement wall. The crew is supposed to be at the house on Friday Mar. 15. Hopefully more pics then.

RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

As promised, Seasonal World came on Friday and completed the forms.

The Deep End

The retaining wall


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

Inspections are scheduled for this Monday, then they pour the cement! I can already smell the chlorine...

RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

It really amazes me to watch these construction threads - when you think of what is accomplished in such a short amount of time, it's just phenomenal! Can't wait to see your next photos!

We had our fiberglass pool installed by Seasonal World a few years ago. No-nonsense company in Central Jersey that did a fantastic job. I'd use them again in a heartbeat. They even made a video of our pool installation.

Hi "Jersey Pool", I actually found your thread last year. One of the reasons I decided to give Seasonal World a chance.


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

Well, It's been a week since I last posted. In that week we've passed inspections, poured the concrete, finished the retaining wall, and installed the plumbing for the filter.

Equipment laid out

RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

I can't believe all the pipes they laid


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

Well hopefully more to come next week! Thanks for following along.


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

Everything looks good so far. I was going to be picky about how I wanted our pool equipment laid out, after seeing so many pix of shoddy work from other installers, but I didn't have to say anything with these guys... Your equipment setup/piping looks real clean as well. Great updates... Enjoying your thread!


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

Looks great!!!!


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

Thanks for the comments all. I'll tell you, the pipes are so well laid, I almost feel bad burying them...


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

No new photos this week, but the pool has been backfilled and the equipment has been wired and the gas line has been pulled to the heater. Hopefully have some new pics next week.


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

Well, a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks.


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

Electric, Gas, Backfill, Liner, and a little water.


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

We are starting to get really excited about Memorial Day!


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

Your pool is looking great! It's fascinating to see the different building techniques based on the part of country in which you live. Many years of enjoyment!


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

Thanks womanowned, our little guy couldn't wait any longer and decided he'd be the first one in. Unfortunately he then decided to roll around in the dirt!

I received an email from kali2024, but have no way to respond since your address was blocked. I haven't had a chance to post my pictures yet, but you can see them at flickr.

Seasonal World has been great to work with and I do recommend them.

My dog is very light (10 lbs.) so I'm not too worried about him tearing the liner. A larger dog (over 50 lbs) would be a cause for concern in my opinion.

What color liner is that??

Came out Great!!!


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

I had never considered that you could use an infloor cleaning system with a liner before.

Pool looks great - congrats!


 o
RE: Central New Jersey New Pool build

The liner is black and tan, I told the PB I wanted a Caribbean Green look. When he told me I had to use this color I thought he was nuts, but he was right.

As far as the infloor system goes, it's the best money I've ever spent. The pool has been open since early May and I haven't vacuumed it yet and the floor is spotless.
