    North Florida Pool and Outdoor Kitchen Build

    I have been checking out all these pools builds and thought it would be cool to see our project on TFP. A little late to the party as far as posting. We started in November building the following

    18x38 free form with sun shelf, raised bond beam with 3 waterfalls, and spa

    All pool equipment is Pentair
    VS Pump
    Cartridge Filter,
    SWG
    Ultratemp heat pump
    Master temp gas heater
    Easy touch 8 with screen logic
    3 intellibrite led(one spa and two pool)
    3 magic streams
    Silver travertine decking and coping
    Screen enclosure

    11x12 L-shaped outdoor kitchen

    ECO gril
    Kamado Joe
    Fridge
    Sink with disposal

    I am trying to educate myself and become a pool nerd, I have learned so much from site. Any thoughts/feedback are welcome, but since we are nearly finished, unfortunately I cannot change much.

    The outdoor kitchen looks great(I'll get pics up) but we have not used it. I can't bring myself to cook anything until the mess from the pool build is gone

    Kitchen mostly completed. It is truly an "l-shaped" kitchen, blame the photographer on the distortion.....I have planned on the blank wall above the counter to use two old 1800s barn beams as floating shelves. Hoping the contractor can mount that safely to stucco

    Back to the pool...equipment is/was in place and plumbing is hooked up....excuse my old pic, I thought I had a better one. I'll get better one with the plumbing showing and the electrical visible

    Thanks! Plaster is set for Thursday. I'm a little nervous about our cold temps and the plaster process

    Great looking build! I like your colors! It looks like things are moving right along!

    The watering job is best done by an "expert" like you had!

    Have you ordered a good test kit yet? If not you can click on the link in my siggy to see which one would fit your needs. Most find the TF-100 to be the best buy as you get more bang for the buck.

    Re: North Florida Pool and Outdoor Kitchen Build

    Thanks Kim! We received the TF-100 in the mail on Friday. So from a materials stand point we are good to go, now I just have to get my confidence that we can handle the pool.

    Re: North Florida Pool and Outdoor Kitchen Build

    OH you CAN do it! It will be fun. Let your kid do it with you.

    Go ahead and run a test on your fill water. Just leave out the CYA test as that has to be added to show any.

    There are videos to show you how to do each test. Here is a link to one. There are several.

    http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...ting-by-Taylor

    After a while it will get so that you can tell by the look, smell, taste of the water what it needs.

    Ask any questions or do a search. We will walk you though it!

    Re: North Florida Pool and Outdoor Kitchen Build

    Funny you say that, I was testing the fill water as you were typing. I'm an over analyzer, so now I'm concerned about our hard water and the calcium level of 375 ppm for the fill. That coupled with the builder saying he'll handle the chemistry for first 30 days. I have a good build experience so far but from what I read on here, the integrity of the finish is very dependent on those first 30 days. So, I'm going to let him handle the pool but follow behind with my own testing.
