    Love lounging in my cement pond here in Spring Tx. :-)

    We had our pool built in 2008 by Cypress Custom Pools. I think we saw at least 10 proposals before choosing them. The only thing we told each company was the budget and left the design up to them. We loved the way they integrated the shape of the pool with the contours of the house. Something no one else did.









    I LOVE how clear a DE filter keeps the water. This is a night time shot of the deep end which is 6.5 feet deep

    25K gal saltwater gunite and Pebble Tech plus built in spa. Features-Weeping rock wall, and fountains. All Pentair equipment. Main pump- Intelliflo 4/160. Feature pump- Intelliflo 2hp single speed. Aux cleaner pump-Pentair 1hp. DE filter, Pentair heater, Glacier GCP210 pool chiller.

    Looks great!!!

    Of course I immediately think of how easy it would be for algae and dirt to collect around the stepping stones

    Ah, but it doesn't, because there are two directional water jets that keep water ceculating around the floating steps for just that reason. Not something I thought of, it was just the way they built it.

    I see the moss on the stones next to the spa and immediately think. "Aggghhhhhhh, green stuff on the pool. Kill it! Get the bleach!"

    Beautiful outdoor playland!
