Good Day everyone,
We are in week three of our pool build here in Escondido, Ca. We bought our home new and thought about a pool but decided the cost was too high to spend at the time so we just landscaped. Well, now they had to tear out a lot of our plants, grass and a few trees. Now, we realize it would of be better to do the pool first then add the other landscape elements. The pool is dug and the shock crete went in on Wednesday so I am watering the pool three times a day now. We are now deciding on the finish products like pool color and coping and decking. Im leaning towards Tropic blue by Stonescapes. We will have travertine coping and deck. We did decide to do the solar panels on the roof but has only been pre plumbed so far. It has been fun to watch the process of building the pool. I'll have to figure out how to post photos. Any suggestions on pool color or travertine suggestions? We have some stamped concrete patio and walkways. My landscape guy said he could do a Rhino coating on it to make it less slippery. Has anyone done this or seen it? We have so much to learn about owning a pool. This website will be a great resource for us. Thanks for any help or suggestions.
