Hello all, great site with awesome info...
We will begin excavation on 3/24 with a 20x40,spill over spa, 6' tanning ledge, 2 full length steps off tanning ledge, at 1' each totaling 8' into shallow end. Depth will be 3.5'- 6'. Full length sheer decent wall with 2, 3' spill overs. Automatic pool cover, 5 savi LED lights, (1 in spa) 2 main drains, 2" PVC piping, gas heater, 2hp VS pump. I don't have exact numbers for equipment I will update post when I get home.
Just thinking of some last minute ideas. I want to go with an automation system PB suggested Hayward aqua plus installed for $1400, extra valves are $200 a piece.
I'm a little concerned about the tanning ledge taking up some room out of shallow end. I was going to go with 4 full length steps, but wife loves the tanning ledges as well as I do. We have 3 young children and I know they will also. I was thinking maybe do ledge 16-17' instead of full length so we can still do lap swimming. Pool will be 8' off existing patio.
