Just joined the forum, we are digging our first pool in two days time! A concrete 30 lineal metre pool, roughly in an '8' shape, although one end will bulb out more than the other (prob be around 6m wide at that point).
We still haven't decided whether to go deep in the middle, or at the large end of the pool (have 3 kids under 5) - happy for any suggestions here.
It will have 3 separate seating areas, with white pebble and blue glass below the waterline. 2 lights in the pool and we are looking at going a Magna based system.
I'm leaning towards a dolphin automatic cleaner over a manual cleaning system.
We are located in the dry tropics of Australia, so will be using the pool most of the year round.
Looking at putting an exposed aggregate concrete path around one side of the pool, then tropical size gardens around the rest - any ideas for this and garden lighting would be appreciated. Also looking to install an outdoor shower beside the pool - mainly for if i have been working in the yard and if i am filthy, can rinse off before jumping in.
