    Very nice, lots of valves. I labeled my valves with a label maker and labels made for outdoor use. Never have to guess what valve does what.

    Re: Final agreement and picture process

    The plumber labeled all my valves for me. I have individual valves for each water feature, cleaner, etc. I also have the two pumps (both dual speed) one for circulation and the other for the water features. Of course I also have one for the cleaner.

    Re: Final agreement and picture process

    Hurricane Ike came and went. New Braunfels wasn't affected so while i was on vacation in Vegas they finished the coping and raised beam walls. They are supposed to form, poor and put the flagstone on the deck next week. Notice in the meantime my new neighbor put in his landscaping and fencing.........why is building a pool so sssllllloooowwwww.........................

    Re: Final agreement and picture process

    I love the coping and tile very nice! I feel your pain about how long it takes. We are also under construction, we signed late in April and excavation began early July and we are waiting for the electrical to pass (hopefully tomorrow). On a good note, I don't know if you are getting Diamond Brite or not but I did some research (I am no expert) and the application manual states that it should be applied after the gunite has cured for at least 28 days. So I guess that is one reason to wait. Hopefully, you will be swimming soon.
    In Construction:
    425 SF Free form (aprox 18 x 23) IG Gunite
    7ft spa with spill over
    1.5 HP Jandy Pump
    1400 Aquapure Jandy SWG
    AE2500 Jandy Heatpump

    Re: Final agreement and picture process

    Wow....you've waited longer than me! I went with PebbleTec but it's probably the same recommendation for both. It stays warm in Texas for a while but I still may have to wait until next year to swim!
