    New Pool Build in North Florida

    Very excited to start our 18x38 pool; sun deck with shallow end being 3 ft, deep end 6 ft with a raised spa, jump platform with multiple water features. Using light gray and white pavers mixed sizes for deck.

    Has anyone used WetEdge Satin Matrix for interior finish? If so, could you please share a picture of your pool and the color used? Love the Prism Matrix but not sure it's worth the extra $3k-6k 😳

    Leaning towards:

    WetEdge Satin Matrix: Midnight Sea, Antigua, Northshore Carribean, Northshore Tahoe

    Thank you!

    You might want to think about the 3' shallow end. That might be too shallow. We have 3'6" and it's perfect for me but I am only 5'3".

    +1 on increasing your shallow end to 3'6". I'm 4'10" and I went with 3'6" as 3' was too shallow. Other taller people on here have complained about hitting knuckles or knees when swimming in that depth...
