Interview with Angie, a Project Manager from Orlando FL
Monday, September 21 2009 @ 01:48:25 EDT by squidboy (18319 reads)
ConstructionAs the reach of this website continues to grow further and further beyond AZ, I continually meet new and interesting people from different places in the US who love to talk about pool construction in their region. Earlier this year, I had a chance to talk to Angela from Orlando, Florida. She has been involved in the pool construction industry as a Project Manager/Superintendent for the last 8 years and working with pools in general for the last 16 years.

The ''Rule of 45''
Sunday, June 08 2008 @ 21:31:30 EDT by squidboy (41974 reads)
ConstructionThe Rule of 45 is a technical term used in physics and has a very practical application in Structural Engineering as it pertains to swimming pool construction. For all you homeowners interested in contracting out your own pool, you would do well to understand not only how its used but a little bit of the background as well.

Owner/Builder #6 - PB from Chandler, AZ
Monday, September 03 2007 @ 13:44:50 EDT by squidboy (19277 reads)
ConstructionPB was a reader who sent a brief email to me about his completed project last month. I couldn't turn his email into a full story as he didn't provide a lot of details. However, he did provide a summary of his project that I thought would still be highly useful to the rest of you.

Some additional subcontractor perspective
Wednesday, June 06 2007 @ 01:28:13 EDT by squidboy (11406 reads)
ConstructionI was fortunate to get some additional insight from another subcontractor - this time a pool plumber from Arizona. Chad has been around the plumbing business for the past 12 years and he currently works with a few select custom pool builders. However, about 80% of his work comes from O/Bs.

A Subcontractor's perspective
Sunday, April 22 2007 @ 00:00:00 EDT by squidboy (24881 reads)
ConstructionI recently had a conversation with Greg, an excavation subcontractor from Riverside, CA. Greg does work for over a dozen different pool builders, but an increasing portion of his business is coming from owner/builders. He digs around 40 pools a year and has been at it for about 8 years. It was an interesting conversation as I was able to get some insight and perspective from the "other side."
