    New Pool Build - Engineer Plans - Please take a look

    Please take a look at our pool plans. We do plan to add more decking. Right now I am looking for comments, opinions, suggestions, etc on the actual structure and plans.

    Thanks.[attachment=0:nzhf6drs]poolplan2.jpeg[/attachment:nzhf6drs]

    Very nice design! One comment on depth profile. We decided to place our raised spa next to the deeper end because our kids will inevitably want to jump off the raised spa into the pool. Another comment is our local restrictions require special provisions (not exactly sure what) if the distance between the pool and the house and less than the deepest point of the pool. Also, if you wanted the sheer descent to be a focal point from the house, you might consider moving it to the back wall. It might be a little hidden on the one end. You can probably drop the nature2fusion and Ozone to save cost. They won't provide much benefit. Suggest SWG or liquid chlorine for long term success. That also seems like a big booster pump ... you might be able to save cost and energy by downsizing some, depending on what it will be used for.
    Build Complete! : 111ft pool + 8.5x5.5ft spa (12" raised), ~22k gallons, Shotcrete, Stonescapes MiniPebble (Aqua Blue), 3 scuppers, 3 bubblers, Large Tanning Ledge, Long Bench, Pentair: Intelliflow 3050 VS, 1.5HP WhisperFlow (scuppers), Quad 100 DE filter, MasterTemp 400k, IC60 SWG, Intellichem+Acid Tank, 2HP Silencer Blower, travertine decking (~680ft2), dry stack flagstone raised wall / spa spillway

    I agree wholeheartedly with this statement! No need for either of these in a typical outdoor residential pool. In fact, the nature2 puts at risk for staining and turning blond hair green.

    We are not doing a salt water pool.

    I should probably clarify my post above in that I meant no need for ozone or nature2.

    May I ask why?

    Then liquid chlorine is your best bet. See: http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-..._chlorine_pool If you want to automate liquid chlorine/bleach, then using a Liquidator or peristaltic pump system can work.
