Day 28 – Pool Construction – Backwash p-trap started

It has been exactly 100 days since work was done on our pool. Back then I was just starting to think that we were going to have a problem with Craig King Pools & Design. I still thought he would get our pool done at some point. It took many more weeks before I came to the realization that he wasn’t. It was probably his ignoring all my emails and phone calls for over a month that finally convinced me that Craig King had made off with my money and I wouldn’t be hearing from him again. Complaints have been filed with the state, my claim against his bond was paid out (although at a fraction of what Craig owes me) and we can finally move on and get our pool finished.

Falyn was jumping up and down with excitement when she saw that Ron of R&R Pools was here. “Mommy, the workers are back!”, she yelled. I think my kids were pretty much convinced that the pool was never going to be finished. Hopefully they will get the gift of swimming in their pool for Christmas. Prayers that we don’t get a bunch of rain between now and then would be appreciated. (They can’t work in the rain!)

Today Ron dug out the planter in the front of the house in preparation for the backwash p-trap install, which should start tomorrow.
