    Help me pick a decking material!

    Another experience based travertine recommendation. We have a lot of it. It stays cool to the feet even at the hottest here in Louisiana. See my pool build thread in signature.

    OB in Goodyear, AZ ramping up

    Consider the light placement. It’s late here and I might not be reading the plans correctly, but underwater lights should face away from main seating or viewing area. Otherwise they are very distracting being point sources and not indirect. You will be looking at that pool way more than swimming...

    Shotcrete (input needed)

    It’s really 6 one way and half a dozen the other. Go with what seems right to you. It shouldn’t be more than a few hours labor to move the cut to where you want it and fill in the old.

    Flooding in Louisiana in august.

    So, long time TFP member. In august this year we took about 3 feet of flood water in our home. Of course the pool was inundated with floodwater as well. Besides filling the pool with gross water, a couple of carp, and flood debris, it damaged my pumps, heater, and heat pump. The...

    Leaf eater

    I have pool skim. One of the best purchases I have made. Schedule a pump high speed run for an hour a couple of times a day and it takes care of the issue completely. Just need a oompa loompa with it to empty the bag and fetch me drinks. And I have leaves just like that pic.
