We are looking at installing a 16x32 in-ground pool, in the DFW area. We are planning to have a 7'x7' hot tub at one end of the pool, that is flush with the pool water. We are currently deciding between pebble-tec and a plaster finish. Our house is stucco, so are fine with the natural variation of a plaster finish. We also want to do a salt-water pool.
I would love to hear opinions on the following:
1. If we are doing a salt pool, do we need a sealer above the gunite to protect the steel?
2. We were looking at pebble-tec for the longevity, but also heard about porcelain coated quartz. Any experience with the longevity?
3. We have heard good things about ozone, but also read that its not necessary in a home pool. Thoughts?
4. In-floor pool cleaning. Just read several threads. Opinions?
I feel like I'm asking about everything! Its a bit overwhelming, so feel free to give me your opinion on any pool construction issue that is near and dear to your heart. I'm happy to be an educated buyer, before construction actually starts.
Thank you so much!!
