    JAvera's Pool Build

    Thanks! No those are not speakers... they are the intakes for all the water features. The builder put drain covers over them to keep people from sucking up againsts them..lol... Also yes I have two 500w lights in the pool and a 300w in the spa. I have them set where they are facing away from...

    JAvera's Pool Build

    Hi Everyone! We are for all intensive purposes done! Since my last post the Aqua Blue Pebblesheen was added last Friday. Truly a fascinating process to watch. These guys are true craftsman as they come in and smooth the pool to a beautiful finish. I found the slurry really interesting, except...

    JAvera's Pool Build

    Well we debated on the SWG but our pool builder didnt really want to do it because of all the rock. I know there is some debate on how corrosive it is. Im probably going to regret not doing it, but I figure I can always come back and add it. So right now we are going clorine sticks. We did that...

    JAvera's Pool Build

    All, Finally had a moment to sit down and write an update. So much has happened since the deck was completed. First the Rock masons came back out and rebuilt the retaining wall back to the way it was originally. The "Clean and Grade" crew came out and did a fantastic job cleaning up the yard...

    Thanks Crabboy... yes why is it the painted outline looks smaller? In any case we are happy with the size. The flagstone coping was fun to watch them cut then chip the edges.

    North Texas/DFW TFP'ers - To close or not to close???

    Hi TFPJules111, I noticed that you are from Denton. I am in Corinth, I have had a pool for the last 10 years( currently building a new one) in this area and I can tell you that I never closed our pool. I always just let it run and let it kick on when the temps dropped close to freezing. The...

    JAvera's Pool Build

    Stone work done. The Stone guys finally finished today. Took them 4 days to get it done. As I said before I am very happy with what they were able to do. I certainly didnt expect them to go above and beyond. They put 6 TONS of Moss Stone in the two water features. I am also very happy with they...
