While the steel guys were still working, the plumbers showed us and started adding PVC pipe to the frame.

The pipes in the spa started out straight, but the guys heated them, then hand shaped them to fit the shape of the spa!  It was really impressive to watch!

Finally, Day Two was done, and our pool (aka, mud pit) would be left to wait until Monday, when the city would send an inspector by to green or red tag it.
