I wanted to say thanks for all of the great information on the site! I am a new member that has been learning a lot from all of the great posts here - I really appreciate the vast amount of information the members here offer. We are just starting the build process on our first pool this week!
Here are a few of the specs as they sit right now.
13'x27' Pool with spa
Blue Granite Pebble Sheen with Abalone
Travertine Coping/Decking - Versailles Pattern - Country Classic
Pentair Intelliflo VS Pump
Pentair Cartridge Filter
Pentair Mastertemp 400 Heater
Pentair Salt water system with automation
We recently landscaped our backyard, thinking we would never put in a pool. A year later here we are.... so unfortunately we have some things to work around. Since we did the landscaping ourselves my wife wanted to keep the fountain (call it sentimental value). Our yard is on the small side, and the rear fence is not parallel to the house which presented some design challenges. I will post some pics of the before and the rough design mock up to show what it may end up looking like! Hopefully the build process will go smoothly.
