    What kind of material did you to make the pool? Did you do the pool DIY ir was it from a box pool kit? I just wanna make sure animals can't get to the lining of the pool hidden where the boards are thinking they're sneaky and it rip.... here in Missouri they are tricky!!! Lol you did amazing though!!!

    Can you use a box pool kit, dig dirt and set it in there?

    Hi, what is you filtering system, sand or cartridge.

    • Andrew Oxton Andrew Oxton on Aug 22, 2017

      Cartridge. It works well enough, but will be upgrading to a decent sand filter next year, i think.
