    I noticed in your details you only have 1 skimmer. Is that what your PB recommended? I thought 2 was pretty standard.

    I wanted two skimmers and 3 returns. He talked me down. He stated that for
    a pool my size, that it just wasn't necessary.
    I also wanted all 2.5 pvc piping.
    He stated that for some areas they would use but for others areas, it did not make sense.
    I caved,...

    Hey Tom!
    I saw that you are using Radiant Fusion. We are as well. Would love to see pictures of your finished plaster with and without water. I'm still trying to decide on color. Thank you!

    We are due to apply interior finish after new year.
    I will definitely post a picture. We narrowed it down to Blue Frost or Regal Blue and
    ultimately picked Blue Frost. PB think Radiant Fusion is a quality finish- I could have picked almost any
    finish as an upgrade but liked this combination for alleged quality, longevity, visually pleasing and smooth on the feet.
    Hope it works out,...
    Thanks
    Tom

    can someone comment on this - did I do the right thing in going with 1 skimmer and 2 returns?
    thanks

    I have one skimmer and one return and make it work for me. You can move the return eyeballs to control the flow of the water. Use a ping pong ball to watch for any "dead" spot in your pool. If you find any dead spots make sure to give them extra brushing.

    Here is a link for you.

    I would add in more brushing but that is me.

    Here is pool with Radiant Fusion Blue Frost applied,
    it is with water. We are pleased.
    The weather is gray and rainy but it looks like we will
    get the Caribbean/Turquoise look we were hoping for.

    Hi and good luck
    We went with pool builder. I interviewed 7 pool builders and considered vinyl, fiberglass and gunite. We went with Premier Pools in Sacremento. Tony Estipular was my sales guy and point person. We had a good experience. I was a high maintenance customer and Tony was patient and informative. His response to me on email was great. I also txt'd frequently with Erik V the construction superviser. With any PB, I suggest you be invovled everyday, ask alot of questions, elicit their suggestions and hold them accountable to quality work. They mean well but are forced to move very fast and that can compromise some small detailed stuff. Overall I was pleased with their work. I found Premier to be the most flexible on price and extras.
