it was!! we were on a very limited budget! but past what you see was dug with an IHI 28n mini excavator with like 3500 hours on it. it was so crappy that you couldnt steer with both tracks at the same time. haha but that is what i really learnd on.

yeah hand digging sucks but there was no way we would have been able to that with a machine since it was in a planter and we had to go around my moms plants and stuff. but i love doing irrigation idk why it is just so fun haha

nope its just solid three inch but once it crosses under the side walk we slid four inch solid corrugated over it and mortared the joint. but it runs to the road in to a grate. the only problem is we didnt have enough fall so the grate has to fill up to empty itself tho.

That is one nice looking pool. But that T190 would look better at the bottom of it though.
