    You must be excited....

    That looks like a pretty steep slope break going into the deep end. Looking back at the layout in your first post I can see it, but I didn't picture it that steep in my head. A random suggestion: I would consider putting a line of tile or something on that edge so people can see where the break is.

    That's a good idea. I'll just need to find a way so it won't look odd in the pool.
