    South Texas Viking "Poseidon" Fiberglass Install (Before & After Pics)

    Our pool is 16' x 40', and 7' at the deep end, installed in Apr 2013. It took a little over 30 "calendar" days to install our pool, but crews were actually on the property only 13 work days total. We were blessed with fairly good weather the whole time. Specifics about this pool/equipment are in my signature. We live in south Texas, just outside of San Antonio. If anyone has questions about our pool or the installer, shoot me a Private Messenger and I'll give you all the details.

    Beautiful! I love all the pictures - I haven't seen all those steps of a fiberglass pool build. Pretty cool. The Blue is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing and take care! Suz.

    Wow! Your pool build looked almost effortless, although I'm sure in reality it was a lot of hard work. I really love the terracotta pots water feature too

    Great looking pool! I like seeing the fiberglass installs. I Was leaning towards fiberglass but could not find a layout that fit our needs. I really like the flagstone coping. It ties in nicely with the walk to the pool.
    What's up with the four return in the shallow end. I assume it is to give a strong flow to the one return.

    IpaFan, yes, there are 4 returns on the far end plus 2 more adjacent to them on the side. Definitely helps to keep the water moving towards the other end (40' to skimmer).

    The terra-cotta pot was an idea we had later after having an extra sub-out installed for a possible fountain or waterfall. Later saw the pot and decided to give it a try.

    Love those tall trees. Are they Italian Cypress?

    They are. They were wee-little babies about 3 ft tall back in May 2013 when I planted them.

    Pat! Just beautiful! I love the color of your pool and that walkway leading to the pool! It does look hot there, but your water looks refreshing!!!

    I have to say, Molly just may be my favorite. In the first picture, I didn't even see her on my phone screen until someone mentioned her. She completely blended in. First she looks all alert, then pooped! Is she on guard duty a lot??? Does she like to swim?

    Ha, thanks. In years past, she was always kind of hesitant about the water. We have a large German Shepard who jumps right in no problem. So this year we encouraged her more & more. Now she prances over the steps, gently gets the courage, and takes the plunge.
