I wanted to wait until we were completely done to post but it will be another year before the plants grow in (and perhaps 2 before I get around to finishing the railings ) so 99% complete will have to do. This is what I have spent the better part of my summer doing and lucky for me it has been the hottest summer I can remember. We were first able to swim the weekend after July 4th but the deck was just finished about a week ago.
I figured someone needed to post a Radiant Metric pool since I was unable to find much about them in my research. As you can see we insulated the floor as well and despite having a 400,000 BTU gas heater have not had to heat it once nor have we yet broken the seal on the solar cover. We have maintained temps between 82 and 84 thus far granted we have had a very hot summer so we will see if that lasts. The one major thing we screwed up (other than a little bit of the plumbing which I will fix this fall) is the floor insulation. I thought it would be a good idea to cover most of the floor with insulation and then fill in the edges with sand rather than trim in small corners. In hindsight, I should have either trimmed the corners at least to the cove or used more sand and graded it down to the insulation. Not sure if that makes sense but the result is a lot of gaps and ridges around the edges of the floor. Oh well, its not hurting anything, I chalk it up to first timer mistake, and it is something that I will address someday when a new liner is in order.
Anyway, without further ado..
