    New Texas Pool

    After fighting the worse HOA, neighbors, and the city and county of Houston we are starting our pool attached is the design for an infinity edge pool. The tanning shelf is 13.6 by 8. We decided to use this silver, black and white tile combo on the tile shelf and benches but not the SPA. Speaking of SPA we upgraded to the 16 jet system with platinum and choose creating a negative edge spa we used reflective tiles see below.

    We are decking the small 8x14 area for a day bed the area across is for a pergola or pavilion. We are deciding that now. Pools max depth is 8 foot. We did put in quite a bench on the pool it should be nice when its done. The whole back side is infinity pool parameter is 135. IMG_3688.jpgIMG_3717.jpgIMG_3716.jpg

    Love the tile! Looks like it's going to be a beautiful build. Sorry you've had trouble with your neighbors! The HOA seems to be trouble for many.

    I'm in for this one.

    You have to give us the details though on the HOA/City/Neighbors thing. I didn't think Humble was subject to City of Houston ordinances. My condolences....

    I'm in Kingwood and just getting started on Stormwater engineering....

    Let the mud and fun begin!

    Make sure you check the measurements after the dig. Add in about 8 inches for under the steel and over the steel. Check the ledge, benches, steps, etc to make sure they are the size you want in the end. Even if it is what is on the plans you might want to do some changes and NOW is the time to do so.

    badcrc, We would LOVE to see some pics of what had happened so far. It is also a good idea to have pics of your plumbing to save for just in case down the road.

    Re: New Texas Pool

    Guys I'm really worried about my plaster choice we didn't upgrade. My pb is saying 3500 to 5500 to upgrade. I'm not sure if I should do it, but with the tiles choosen I'm thinking a dark bottom would look good exspecially with the travertine (silver).

    I'm considering led lights in the troth as well

    Re: New Texas Pool

    Welllllllllllll We (I) are known to help spend money so..........Yes a dark bottom would really set off those tiles!

    BUT saying that............dark plaster is harder to get right. There have been some that showed molting pretty bad. There is one recent one (Indigo Blue is the poster's name) where it turned out great! It REALLY depends on the skill of the plaster crew AND the after care.

    Lights in the troth would be awesome...........One idea that popped in to my head when I read that was rope lighting......not sure how that would work but I think it would look so neat!

    Re: New Texas Pool

    If your talking about lights in the catch basin, its a good idea. Otherwise, it tends to be dark in that area. Here is a pic of ours with the lights
