In the design phase of an OB IG pool in Pflugerville Texas. Everyone in central Texas picked up on that from my title.
Had a pool built by PB about 20 years ago in the same neighborhood so this time have decided to do it ourselves to get what we want and save some money.
Been following Andy's, Jamie's, and ummgood's builds and have taken notes. You guys and everyone on this forum are fantastic, I've enjoyed it and learned allot.
Some basics until I get some build drawing to post. We are building an IG freeform gunite SWG pool.
91' perimeter, ~480 sq ft area
Freeform shape, 18' x 34'
3.5' - 5' -4' deep
3' x 8' waterfall feature
~ 510 sq ft concrete and sundek or similar decking
Some additional flagstone and composite decking as well
Sealed Oklahoma flagstone coping
Minipebble Wet Edge or similar surface. Either Antigua or Northshore Carribean
Pentair Clean and Clear Plus 420 Cartridge Filter
Pentair Intelliflo VS Pump 011018
2 Pentair Intellibrite 5G Color LED Pool lights
Pentair Easy Touch Control System with IC40 Chlorine Generator
2 main drains
Pentair Racer Cleaner w/ pump
Thanks Jamie for the template
That's it for the first run. Nothings been ordered yet so I can still change my mind.
Main areas of concern:
Using Oklahoma Flagstone with Salt Water in central Texas. More people than not have warned me against this but this is the look we want. So if I replace all the coping in 8 years. so be it. I'll consider it a learning experience.
Plan on sealing it and maintaining proper pool balance. I'm open to suggestions on how to make it work or alternatives.
1 or 2 skimmers, not sure, and how important is placement if I only use one?
Never had a SWG pool but said if I ever had another pool it would be salt so I will be reading and re-reading all the TFP 101 stuff.
That is all for now and I'm looking forward to the ride or swim I guess is more appropriate.
