Howdy, fellow TFPers! I've been lurking for months, soaking up as much information as I can (it's overwhelming! ) before deciding to jump in and start a thread now that we're getting closer to starting our build.
My husband and I interviewed 4 PBs before deciding to go OB, with some moral support from justinjudd (thanks Justin!) and help/advice regarding subs from both spillmar (thanks Roger!) and Corleone (thanks Nick!).
I was able to create a pool plan using Pool Studio (great program) and we were issued our permit last week. (Yay! ) Below are the drawings from Pool Studio as well as pics of what our yard looks like currently.
Current Pics (using pvc to design with before using pool design software):
Same view last December 30th when a freak snow storm hit Southern California and we got 1 1/2 feet of snow!
We're still interviewing subs, but it looks as if digging will begin in the next week or so. As we get further along, I'll be sure to post in-progress pics. In the meantime I have a few questions:
1. Do you think 6 jets is too few for an 8' round spa?
2. What do you think about installing lights on the steps in the pool? Does anyone who's done this have any pics?
3. Do most people have overfill drains?
Thanks so much for your help!!!
