    Underway in NM

    Here are some pics of our 20x36 underway. I will update signature line and specs as we get closer to water. This is a great site, looking forward to water and chemistry!

    What are the 6 recesses in the deep end and the ledges in the shallow end for?

    Look like ladders to climb out and benches to sit on to me.

    Yep, the recesses are steps to get out of the deep end on both sides and the ledges are benches to hang out on and for the 3 Labradors to get out on. There is a bench on one side of the deep end also.

    Deep end is 8.5' so my four boys, can be boys.

    Tile work and running lines, getting ready for decking, should be swimming in two more weeks!

    Lookin' good. I like the tile and that is an interesting edge treatment. I don't think it would work here; too many pine needles.

    Is that Las Cruces?

    In Albuquerque. If you are talking about the tile run on one of the short ends, that is where the auto cover retracts to and the roll is supported. The concrete will be poured out in forms over it a bit to hide some of it. More pics next week.

    Re: Underway in NM

    My pool is very similar. One thing I would do is add a radius to the edge on the tile on the inside of the cover vault. Cant tell if you have one, that way when the cover is closed it wont snag on the seams on the underside of the cover.

    Re: Underway in NM

    That makes sense, thanks for the tip. I could find some stanless bullnose or something similar and get it on there.

    Re: Underway in NM

    Any issues with water loss from splashing, jumping, etc. and entering your pool vault? Or does the auto cover block it? We are nearing the end of our build and I'm concerned. Thanks

    I have nearly the same setup and there is defiantly water splashing into the cover vault, depends on how full the pool is to some degree. It isn't much unless adult size people are doing cannon ball from the board, my guess would be 0 / 30 gallons with people swimming but 200 / 500 if you really get wild.
