    Nothing special

    Hello All....This is our pool. Originally there was just an inground spa with plaster finish and raised brick coping when we purchased the house a little over a year ago. We added the pool and upgraded the spa with the same finishes. This was all completed just before Halloween last year. Got to swim in it twice last year by heating the pool with propane........expensive! We used a glass tile for the waterline and the finish is Gemstone/Sandstone Blue Diamond. This past weekend the air temperature was close to 80F and with the solar running by the end of the day the water temperature was 75F. After 4 months of spa only the wife just had to get in....yeah she's tougher than me!

    Re: Nothing special

    Thank you for the nice remarks and warm welcome! These are evening pictures with the moon and lights turned on. Landscaping along with solar pathway lights around the pool and Bluetooth speaker pathway lights mixed in with the palms in front of the rocks. The front of our house faces west and it's nice to have the shade from the house and see the hills behind us change colors with the sun as it sets.

    Our house elevation is around 1500ft. but there are a couple of mountains with +6500ft. peaks close by (Palomar Observatory and Cuyamaca).

    Re: Nothing special

    Okay, some serious underselling is going on here. With that pool and view combo this really is something special IMO.

    Looks fantastic!

    Wow! Very nice view and the pool is amazing! The builder did a fabulous job since it was an add on to the existing spa.
