    Built in bar stools will mean an in floor cleaning system. Just a heads up. If not your cleaner will get caught up every time. Good luck!

    Re: swim up bars!!

    I was going to put one in but decided instead that I would look into the removable bar stools instead. They aren't as aesthetically pleasing, but they're very practical and can be removed which negates an in-floor cleaning system and also means they don't take up space in the pool when not needed. A good compromise perhaps.

    I'm not aware of the removable models. Please share some pics.

    This is one option.

    I'm not mad about the looks but I think functionally it works.

    This is another, again not mad about the looks:

    This is another concept I saw but haven't seen it to buy...

    My friend has a swim up bar in his pool and the builder installed his cleaner opposite from the bar stools. So basically they just made sure the cleaner would not be able to get caught by making sure the cleaner hose was not long enough. It gets everywhere else in the pool.

    Re: swim up bars!!

    I wouldn't have a swim-up bar. I'd want to make people get out of the pool periodically...and while they're out to get a fresh drink, they can use the bathroom.

    As an aside, I remember this pool in Serbia from last year refilling-the-pool-need-some-help-with-pool-calculator-t51909.html
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
