    DFW pool remodel

    We are about to start on a face lift for our pool. The pool was here when we bought the house, but we think it's probably from the mid 90's.

    We are going to demo and rebuild the waterfall, resurface with WetEdge Satin Matrix Kiwi Tropical, new coping using Oklahoma flagstone, new waterline tile and we are adding a tanning ledge by extending the top step out.

    Pool is draining today and demo starts tomorrow.

    I've attached a picture of the new pool surface and waterline tile.

    I love seeing re-do's, sometimes more than new pools. Always good to see a nice transformation.

    Good luck on your project and do update us with some pics.

    That must be a new color. I couldn't find it on their website.

    I like the Irish Crème in that series, and wish there was an installer here. Nice choice on Wet Edge, I've hear nothing but good about it. Something I like about them is that they have any color you could imagine wanting in a pool.

    Started cutting the flagstone coping today, and getting ready to build out the new tanning ledge.

    Re: DFW pool remodel

    Flagstone has all been set, and new waterfall tiled. Stone/tile work should finish up tomorrow, and pool surface prep will start.

    Re: DFW pool remodel

    Thanks everyone for the kind words!

    Stone and tile work is complete. I really like the dry-stack stone on the backside of the waterfall...it ties in with the BBQ island in the background.

    Tanning ledge is built out and ready for surfacing as well.

    Surface prep starts tomorrow and new finish should be applied on Friday.

    Re: DFW pool remodel

    Looking forward to seeing the finish installed. It all looks really nice!

    Giving this a second look, I'm wondering about the sharp corners still on either end of the tanning shelf. It's probably going to be addressed, but it caught my attention and thought it worth mentioning.

    Re: DFW pool remodel

    Thanks Bushpup...a lot of activity the past few days. Clean-up and base coat was applied on Thursday, new finish was applied yesterday. This morning they came and acid washed the pool, and then pressure washed it. Pool is refilling now!

    I asked about those corners as well, and they did a great job of rounding them off. No sharp edges.

    Only thing left to do is the mastic between the pool deck and the flagstone coping. I know a few folks here on the forum have used Romo's, and I'm another satisfied customer of theirs!

    The sun is washing the color out right now. I'll take one later this evening that will better show the colors.
