There are two guys on the truck mixing the stuff up. The white bags are Portland cement and the brown bags behind, where the second guy is leaning his elbow, are labeled "Blue Lagoon" (whew, they brought the right color). They set up the first slurry box in the front yard there where there's no grass anyway. I do actually notice a lot of 20oz plastic Coke bottles - there's one sitting in the back of the truck. They're scattered around. Hmmmm.
The guys on the truck are worried because they're already running out. This is a really big pool (for this area). So they're on their cell phones calling for a delivery of more ingredients.
When they start covering the bottom of the pool, they have to start wearing the funny shoes that have big spikes on the bottom that elevate them above the wet PebbleTec. And they're walking funny. Isn't that just a lovely color?
The rest of us are busy, but my mom will be home over the weekend. They expect the acid-wash guy to do his work on Saturday and then we get to start filling the pool...
