    NEW > SoCal Vanishing Edge

    Putting up a series of pictures to follow the build.
    But also in hopes that others will alert me if anything can be corrected or improved upon as it goes along.

    Not much access to get the "heavy" equipment in... fortunately we're building on a slope so not much dirt to move (in fact none will leave the lot)







    Digging done first week of November

    Time to frame it up... let the rebar begin:













    Maybe I should have said 'tons' of rebar

    First week of December... a couple days of rain, but then clears up and it's time for gunite








    ...and the next morning it's in curing mode

    Re: NEW > SoCal Vanishing Edge

    The shallow end was a little too deep and the fall off too steep and too fast...
    it was noticed in the rebar phase and was supposed to be taken care of during the gunite process.
    But it took them longer than they expected to get as far as they did and it was too late to order more
    material, the PB said not to worry they'll use cement to fix it. Here they go...






    Finished a few days before Christmas.

    Very nice vistas to look out at. Did they use re-bar to tie the added concrete to the pool shell?

    No they did not add any rebar. They used a "bonding agent" and said they've done this many times before.

    Did an engineer design the structural part of this?

    Did they use something to make sure that the pool didn't shift or settle? Something like piers, pylons or a retaining wall?

    All of the above; the engineer required a footing that was wider (front to back) than the spill wall and it is over 3' deep.

    Just to help it out...not that we knew it at design time, a good part of that trough had to be cut out of solid rock, shown here:







    and then the wall also has overkill on the rebar (beyond local code and engineering specs)

    Ok. Infinity edges are beautiful, but they require proper engineering. Good to know that they're doing it right.

    16,900 Gallons
    Surface Area 430 sg ft.
    Perimeter 86 Ft

    The dimensions...via the plans:



    In the cross section here below you can see what the nominal grade was on the site (via the maroon dash-dot line) thus not a need to move much dirt.
