    EskimoPie's Build

    Here is a picture of our current progress in our pool build. We just completed the gunite phase. We're in southern arizona and it's our first pool so we're pretty excited. You can see the specifics of the pool in my signature. Hopefully we'll be swimming within 2-3 weeks!

    My Pool:
    12K gal IG gunite with 7' raised spa, gunite waterfall, PebbleTec Caribbean Blue finish, solar heating & in-floor cleaning system

    Equipment: Sta-Rite 300' Cartridge Filter, Intellichlor IC20 SWCG, Sta-Rite 400k BTU heater, Intelliflow 4x160 main pump & Sta-Rite 3/4 hp waterfall pump, EasyTouch controlls w/ wireless controller, TF-100 Test Kit w/ salt test.

    Welcome! The pool looks great, like the open space behind your pool too. What solar did you go with? I just had my panels and plumbing completed by Performance Solar Company here in AZ, they will complete the connection once the water is in the pool.

    My pool builder is Patio Pools and they don't use any contractors (they claim). All of their work is performed by their employees. I do believe they are Helicoil (sp?) panels however. I'm getting 7 panels.

    Very Nice! Looks like you're gonna have a lot of action in your pool with all of those returns. Hope you come in on schedule or before. I'll let you have the extra weeks my pool was delayed, that way..............well you would already be finished, nevermind.

    Anyway, welcome to TFP!

    The trenches have been back filled and the tile work was done today.

    The wife thinks the tile is much darker than she remembers but I think it'll look really nice once it's filled with Caribbean blue PT and water.

    Here is a closeup of the tile. The backside of the spa is going to be Stucco matching the back wall.

    I like the tile color you selected. What are your plans around the pool once it is completed?

    We're currently getting quotes from landscapers... we're going to do some raised planter areas (probably built up w/ slump blocks), a grass area beside the pool (currently torn between fake or real grass), some concrete decking and a built-in barbeque/bar. I'll try to take some better pictures of the entire yard.

    In the mean time, here is the pool with the concrete decking poured (still in the forms). The gap between the two sections of concrete is where the wraught iron fence will go (and then up near the right side of the pool).

    We did real grass next to our last pool, loved the look despised the grass clippings in the water and the green stains that got on the acylic decking. We are going to install artificial next to our pool this time around, we also have the real stuff away from the pool. Our last pool with the grassy areas on either side of pool - separated by two foot strip of decking - this was too close IMHO.

    edited to add - I like the freeform decking!
