I'm totally new for all of that & I would really appreciate any help, advice or opinions.
I started my spool construction 2 weeks ago, it's a 18" raised freeform gunite build 17'length x 10'wide & 4-4.5' deep with artificial rocky waterfalls, grotto, 8 jets distributed 26" apart at different height levels from the seating deck that's located on one side only of the spa. Please check attached plan.
The equipment to be installed is:
Pentair "Master Temp" heater(400,000 btu)
Pentair "Intelliflo" variable speed pump.(circulation/jets)
Pentair "Whisperflo" 1 1/2 horse power pump (waterfall)
Pentair Cartridge filter
Pentair salt system
Pentair color light.
Intermatic time clock.
I'm still confused about a lot of remaining details, like the plaster finish, tile to be used, decking around...
We are using the dark brown color for the rocks, three river flagstone coping & veneer stone for the outer side.
Is it ok to use a French gray plaster for this kind of spa? We are interested in dark/medium blue colors & at the same time I'm afraid the steps in gray will look so dark/cheap or may be the spool is too small to reflect this kind of dark plaster
I took care of the design & equipment but have no idea on how to finish the inside of the spa & the decking around to get the look we dream of (like a natural lake with little waterfall)
I will be posting Photos of how we are progressing with our project & wait for your opinions & suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
