Budgeting for a pool

sounds unfortunate as i'm sure it's going to be more challenging and potentially costlier to do the pool after the build.
our pool guy has been really good thus far. …

Ours was a steady sludge like consistency coming out (bit like mud lava) as well as a some pockets of more 'normal' water…

if you are building with TA, then our upgrade was only a few hundred from the standard system you get. this is the…

wow that's a steep price tag for what seems like a small matter.
