Pool Day 2

They brought in a big truck. It was back in the alley. It took two truck load to empty all the plaster from my pool. They put the plaster in wheelbarrows - then up the ramp - and into the truck

They shoveled all the plaster into buckets. Then they lifted up the buckets to the edge of the pool. Someone then put the plaster from the buckets in the wheelbarrows. Golly, if their backs didn't hurt when they got to my house, I'm sure they hurt now.

This guy jackhammered for 4 1/2 hours.

This guy chipped off all the tile. There were 6 of them working on my pool today. The pool contractor told me it would take at least 6 hours. These guys had it done - cleaned up - and gone in 5 hours. Woohoo!Posted by Picasa

Wow, I can't believe they got that done that fast!

The whole time I'm looking at those buckets of plaster I'm thinking pathway.

In-ground pools, hmm. Strangely enough, we don't have any up here ... two words: "permafrost" and "earthquakes".

Seriously, it's looking good! It's hard to believe they got done so quickly. Amazing!

I was thinking about all that back-breaking work and really glad it wasn't my job to remove the plaster. Can't wait to see what happens to your pool next. Great pictures!
