Installation --Day one

The Pool and the 900 pounds worth of equipment arrived last Wednesday and has been occupying my garage ever since.While I waited impatiently and my little car withstood the first freeze and the first snowshowers of the season.(there was beautiful snow-dust on the mountains this morning)


This morning the Spa Tech man (Glenn)arrived with his able companion and gazed with frank admiration at the beautimous transformation of the garage... crates and whatnot, notwithstanding. It is now 11:40am and the lads have left for lunch. The pool walls are assembled and they discovered that the floor is not completely level and will require some shims to level it. Funny, it seemed level 6 weeks ago, but we didn't check everywhere. At least we can avoid pouring more cement-gulp. In order to save myself bunches of dollars, I volunteered to cut and insert the rigid foam insulation into the wall panels which we will be doing when they return, so I had better get my glovies and a serated knife-oh, and a tape measure..."measure twice, cut once".

to be continued...
