    Building a new pool- first time for us

    We chose Keith Zar as they have the best reputation in the area for solid custom work. They have designed an ozone system with an 11 ft beach entry, 6 person spa, 16ft slide, 4 ft grato waterfall, volleyball net holes, 3 bubblers in the beach entry, and we are going with pebble decking. The pool is a guitarish shaped freeform symmetric 34ft x 19ft not including the beach entry. It also comes with 1300 ft of decking, and led lighting and ipad controls with 3 variable speed pumps. We also added a fire pit since they are installing a propane tank for heating the spa. Im not sure if we got screwed, or went in a totally wrong direction, and frankly Im not sure I want to know at this point. Lol. One thing we will add is the safety netting and alarm since we have a 7 and 4 year old even though they are accomplished swimmers. They break ground next week. Wish me luck!

    4'6" on the slide end and 3'6" on the beach side. We wanted to discourage diving and promote a relaxing pool.
