    Opinions on ABG's and design

    Ok so hubby and I have been talking. We decided that next year we should consider getting a bigger pool I have only had 2 Intex pools (one blow up and now the 14ft one) so bear that in mind

    Of course I have read tons on here over and over again.. but I still have NO IDEA one pool from the next, decking etc... here is what we know we want (but can always change )

    1. We want a deep end - we like to swim.. a lot.
    2. I am debating on partial bury or leaving above...
    3. I do want decking around but not real sure if I like the idea of elevated decking around my back yard.
    4. I would have to have electrical ran out to a spot (my guess) and create an area there for stuff to go

    While I am more of the DIY, hubby not so much lol Of course the testosterone hit with the mention of excavating and a bobcat and I could feel my nerves already start.

    After a search, it appears I am limited in pool places so if anyone knows anything that would be great. I attached what I drew out and the measurements should be to scale and pretty accurate. It does not depict the whole yard just the portion we would be using. Please feel free to post thoughts or suggestions.. I am open to anything.

    1. We want a deep end - we like to swim.. a lot. << I think I would enjoy a deep end but my pool is a little small. A dished bottom might have been nice
    2. I am debating on partial bury or leaving above... << I am not sure all makers allow for a partial or full burial. Doughboy does.
    3. I do want decking around but not real sure if I like the idea of elevated decking around my back yard. << I didn't want my decking at the level of the pool, I added my decking about a foot above the main yard and about 36 inches below the top rail. I like it. I did add a higher deck in the corner behind the tree that is only about 8 feet wide. Photos below.
    4. I would have to have electrical ran out to a spot (my guess) and create an area there for stuff to go << I have not done this yet but plans in are in the works. I have two cinderblocks under my pump and filter. Have worked great for almost 10 years. I would recommend doing it during your install. I wish i added something "waterproof" under my skimmer to handle the water that spills out of it. It washes out the landscaping and mulch.
