We were held back a little because of Dear Debby. But, Wednesday the water line tile went in. Yesterday the guys came and removed the old screens and powerwashed and acid etched everything. This morning (yes on a Saturday) they are here to do the flo creet. They have the back of the house covered in plastic and everything taped off. He said he will be back tomorrow to apply the stain.

The cage is scheduled to go up on Monday!! Alarms go in Monday, inspection Tuesday. I gave them Wednesday off (HA!!!) and Thursday they are hoping to have the interior finish of the pool done and start filling it by Thursday afternoon.

i am a little suprised they wouldnt do the inside finish next ,before the paint on the deck and cage ? I would have thought it would be an easier process and avoid any damage.

looks good though NPHO

Painting/staining is done today, he said he'll be back and do a second coat once all the other work is completed. I THINK the reasoning for the finish in the pool being done after the cage is a liability thing. They fill the pool as soon as the finish is applied. If there is no cage or fence there is no barrier to keep anyone out. Just my thought but this is the way they do it all the time so I'm sure they know what they are doing. Oh the alarms have to be up also before the pool is filled, they go in tomorrow also.

those alarms will be down about 5 minutes after the final inspection...ours were. Bloody nuiscance.

are the pool company installing them ? Ours said they didnt and it was our responsibility due to laibility issues..eg if one failed (due to battery removal)or fell (with help)off and someone drowned then they could be sued.

i got 8 from Home Depot , installed carefully, then returned for a refund. the crazy thing is talking to the inspector , all windows inside the caged area had to have them (even ones that kids couldnt reach or lift) yet a door outside the cage that they could open ,then go back into the cage, then fall in the pool...didnt need one.

Oh for sure we will remove the stupid alarms quickly. The pool company is installing them. I agree some of these "codes" are pretty useless but...............

Yesterday the deck was painted. Today the alarms went in and the cage is almost done. They'll be back in the morning to finish.

Default We Have Pool

Today the interior pool finish was done. Amazing to watch this all happen. Our dog came out and RAN down the steps, he can't wait for that first swim. Tomorrow they will come and put the chemicals in and get the pump fired up. After a few minor little things and some grass installed we are done. We are assured the water will look blue when it's all said and done.

I cannot say enough GOOD things about Superior. Not ONE complaint or issue during the whole process. Wonderful people to deal with!!!

it looks good NPHO...just a word of advice, not sure if its been mentioned before. with our dog being in the pool daily the hair in the filter is crazy. any pool shop can sell you filters to go round the plastic basket filter in the skimmer....well worth it. the amount of stuff they catch that doesnt go into the main fillter will amaze you
