    New pool project coming, need some advice first please.

    Everyone,
    I'd like to thank you for the contributions and posts about your builds. They have been very helpful sorting through many of the primary decisions that need to be made. It has also created some indecision on my part on a couple important items and would love to hear everyone's thoughts.

    We are pretty set on a roman end pool with a 9' or 10' depth with an 8' diving board
    #1 20 x 40 or 18 x 44?

    Surfaces
    #2 Gunite with Pebbletec or Pebble Sheen or Liner?
    I've read both price and general abrasive ness as downfalls of the Gunite and Pebbletec.
    I've read liners can be ripped, but typically cost plus a replacement or two are about equal to Gunite and pebbletec

    Deck surfaces
    We like not slippery and not too hot to walk on. The rest is cost and appearance. Thoughts?

    Anyone's input with experience on any of the above would be greatly appreciated, so please help me.
    Thanks,
    BQ

    If your considering a diving board, I would say the longer the better, and deeper the better, in my experience the common likely impact point for people while diving is mis-estimating the location of the slope going to the shallow end.
