    Re: New Pool Build with pics

    Just wanted to update our build with a few current pics. As you can tell, due to the long delay in construction the PB increased the size of the pooldeck considerably from the original size of 600 sq ft to 850sqft [attachment=1:1er7yzgz]pool deck.jpg[/attachment:1er7yzgz][attachment=0:1er7yzgz]pool deck2.jpg[/attachment:1er7yzgz]

    Pool and deck look wonderful!
    My personal preference is to have unions in the plumbing, makes replacing things like filter/pump easier.

    Re: New Pool Build *update*

    Hi Rob N -
    Your build looks great! On your sun tanning deck - what depth will that be when the pool is full? My wife is really interested in one for our build and we've seen quite the range in depths... Also, what's the approx. square footage of the sun tan deck area?

    Thanks!
    Jason

    Re: New Pool Build *update*

    Rob - our tanning ledge is in 9" of water. Seems to be a good depth for the young ones to splash around.

    Also, my wife was very cautious about the room on the deck, just as you are pointing out. For her it wasn't so much about sq. feet as it was about making sure there was plenty of width to accommodate full size loungers and still have enough room for
    traffic to walk by. In retrospect, I'm glad she focused on this.

    Looks like a nice build underway. My only question - why are the later pictures so small?

    Re: New Pool Build *update*

    Jason, the tanning ledge in the pool is 7ft by11ft at it's widest points. It is 8-9" deep with the pool filled. As far as the pool deck i calculated the area and it is just under 1000 sqft. The widest point is 20 feet from the coping to the edge closest to the patio, and the most narrow part on the house side is 14'. On the back side the most narrow part is 4'6" from coping to the edge of the deck.
    Stevereno, the first pics (larger)were taken with my camera, the rest were taken on my phone... Sorry, they are somewhat on the small side...

    Re: New Pool Build *update*

    Pool1999, thanks, we are so excited!! I installed some bushes, umbrella insert caps and will be laying sod this weekend! My wife is ecstatic that it will be finished totally and handed over to us today!! I can't wait to start applying some of the methods I have learned from this amazing forum! The water is warm enough to swim in now, and it will be warm enough this weekend to give it a beverage test and swim!
