    How much is gunite or fiberglass worth over vinyl?

    So here's the thing...in your climate, how many months of the year can you use your pool? Here in Michigan where we can only use our pool 6 months of the year, vinyl is very prevalent. I would never spend 200K on a pool that I can only use for six months of the year. You better like the cover...

    Try not to freak out. That is definitely NOT what your water will look like once it's balanced. Give it a few more days and you will love it!

    Sports Pools vs Deep/Shallow End Pools

    I guess to me if it's at least 6' deep, it's over most people's heads and I consider that a deep end? I guess Dirk's poll should have been asked "would you prefer a diving pool or not", lol?

    Sports Pools vs Deep/Shallow End Pools

    Our pool is 36' x 14' with 4' shallow end and a 6' deep hopper. We like to jump/cannonball in the deep end to enter the pool. Kids play basketball and jump in catching the football in the deep end while adults all hang out in chairs on the tanning ledge or stand in the shallow end with a...

    Building! New IGP in MN

    Wow that's huge! Looks like you have a nice big yard for it. Are you putting in a diving board or slide? Have you picked out your liner yet? Good luck on the rest of your build :)

    20/20 hindsight.... what do you regret spending or not spending $$ on?

    Really like having the sunshelf and would not want a pool without it. We have 6" deep water on the shelf and we and others really like that depth. We put some adirondack style chairs in there and sit with our feet on the bubblers...love. Also really enjoy our colored lights, two in the pool...

    Shotcrete (input needed)

    Nope, that would drive me nuts. It needs to be centered on the wall. Once you have water in the pool, you won't notice the shelf so much, it will be viewed as one big body of water and that descent will be off center.

    Slightly cloudy pool

    Did do a SLAM, pool is now crystal clear and passed OCLT, got CYA up and now letting FC drift down to 7-8. TA still very high, has been high since opening. Not sure how to get that down when PH is a 7.2. Do I want to lower PH even more? So grateful for my TF-100 test kit. Would drive me crazy...

    Need help deciding pool size

    Yes, go bigger! Our pool is 14' x 36'. Very grateful that we were able to even fit that size in our yard but ideally 18' x 36' would be perfect!

    Is this a vinyl or concrete pool?

    Slightly cloudy pool

    Our salt water pool has been looking a little cloudy as of late and I just cannot figure out why....here are our readings using TF-100 FC 3 PH 7.5 TA 170 CH 175 CYA 35 What do you think could be causing it? TA is a little high but do you think that would cause cloudiness?

    Finally Done!!

    Everything looks absolutely fantastic! Love all of your choices. Is it a sports depth? Are you getting bar-stools for around the bar? We have a little bar setup in our backyard that has 4 stools, it's where everybody seems to congregate. Every party we've had so far we have to run in the...

    Can I add a tanning ledge to a vinyl pool?

    We have a tanning ledge in our vinyl lined pool with two lighted bubblers. The shelf is 6" deep water and we really love it. We use the plastic adirondack chairs on the ledge, the bottom of them has some kind of felt so it doesn't hurt the liner. Also, the liner on the ledge and the steps is...

    Yes, the Reef liner is by Latham/Kafko. I love, love, love this liner. That being said, I see you are looking for what you consider "teal" water color. I don't think I would describe Reef as giving off a teal color, more turquoise if that makes sense? I think if you truly want a teal color...

    Landscaping update ideas?

    Wow that's a lot of rocksl! Pain in the butt to move too, we just did that in our yard. Maybe you could clear out the rocks on either side of your walkway and put down some brick pavers or something that will give you more usable deck space. Leave 3-4 ft all around the back and left side of...

    Vinyl Liner Pattern Roundup Project - Post Pic & Name Of Your Liner

    We had our Reef liner/no border installed two days ago......we couldn't love it more. It was the exact color we were hoping for. Like many of you, we wanted the slightly aqua/turquoise color and went back and forth between gray, tans and this liner. I ultimately chose Reef and am so glad I...
