    Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada (with completed photos and costs!)

    Still looking for an answer about Intellichlor, but here are some photos with lights and landscape now that almost everything is done (still need to put in fire bowl in back area behind where loungers are):

    The pool has been up and running for a month and a half now, but I have yet to replace the dummy with the actual intellichlor unit. Any thoughts on doing this at this time of year? Living in Vegas, we don't completely shut the pool down for the winter, but just not sure if we should wait...

    Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada (with completed photos and costs!)

    The deck finish is just a light gray spray deck--no brand name that I'm aware of. The bubbler is a pentair Colorcascade LED. I'll try and get some pics of it at night. I think it's worth it so far. I had a bubbler before without a light and this adds a lot. One thing I'll not is that since...

    Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada (with completed photos and costs!)

    After nearly 10 days of 110 degree plus weather, we finally got into the pool. There is still a little bit of plaster dust on the floor, but the ph was good and we were ready. Let's just say that it was that much better when I got having been an owner-builder. I still need to bolt down the...

    Re: Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada The pool is now filled and all systems are go (well, almost all systems). It took a total of 40 hours to fill the pool which coincided with a 2:30 a.m. changing of the hose to the spa under the light of the big full moon. I reduced the flow on the...

    Re: Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada For those of you interested in what something like this costs, the builder I went to originally quoted me a total of $65,500 for most of what I ended up building. Our finished product has a few upgrades and additional items, and we haven't finished...

    Re: Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada You could fit 6, but it depends on how close everyone is. It would be more comfortable with 4 for sure.

    Re: Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada Plaster company came and pressure washed the gunnite today. Plaster goes in tomorrow morning. We're doing pebble fina grigio, so it requires an acid startup to expose the sparkling bits of aggregate in the plaster. It was a pain in the butt on...

    Re: Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada Things slowed down a little bit again because of the weather (wind, heat, and some rain) and a vacation, but we're nearing the finish line. Just passed my pre-plaster inspection this morning. Here to get the pre-plaster you have to have a pool...

    Re: Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada Yesterday they started pouring the deck. Because of the extreme heat we've been having, this deck process has gone much slower than I anticipated. They poured half the deck yesterday and started the other half today. Then it will cure for a week...
