We have a back room we call the observation room as we sit in the am, drink our coffees and watch the wildlife romp about. We even watched a baby bird being helped by both parents yesterday. This has been better than any wiz bang crunch ‘em up shows we’ve seen on the tube.

So, after a month of waiting for the pool to be fabricated, we actually got upgraded for free to a deeper pool (woohoo ) finally did the ground breaking and installed BUT couldn't be backfilled until it was filled. Took 3 days to fill and now a month later I am trying to find someone to backfill it, just a small bobcat job but Im at a lost trying to find someone as all the pool companies here hire subcontrators to install ??? Anyway, I got all the electrical ran and buried (250' ) one line dedicated to the pump itself and the other line for outlets and lights, both on GFCI Breakers..Now to get this damn thing backfilled so I can build the deck.

hire a farmers son & the backhoe that they likely have
If not they must have a tractor & bucket or plow

A couple of high school boys & a home depot rental compactor & steel toe protectors




lay about 4" of dirt, then compact it
When it gets to a point that the tractor can put tires onto to fill area, that can be driven on the dirt, as long as they stay at least 3 feet away from the pool
