Hello all, been lurking here for several months soaking up all of the great knowledge and info, this is really an amazing forum!
Our pool journey started out with a leak in our 3yr old AG Intex Sequoia pool that had served us well. Started looking for the leak with no luck and then decided to replace it, wife dropped the "let's just build a pool" and I sarcastically said "sure get some quotes" thinking an IG pool would be out of our price range.
Well a few quotes later and some design wrangling we signed a contract on 5/30/2012!
Here are the basic specs:
15.5 x 30 free form gunite pool with depth of 3.5' to 8' (roughly 15,000 gals)
Stamped contrete coping and deck
White plaster finish
Pentair Whisperflo pump
Clean and Clear 420 filter
Polaris 280 pool sweep
Intellibrite LED light
Easy touch control system w/ remote
Guardian safety fence
Here is the design-
Goal was to utilize the smallest part of yard for the pool and deck areas while preserving a large area for the swingset and grass. We didn't want our backyard to just be all pool.
