    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    Well all the rain has done its toll. Our pool caved in on almost every side.. so plumbing and dig crew expected back out to start again. My wife and I just laughed. We might as well have some fun watching this all happen.

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    I dont think I will be there before the backfill, so I hope they do, but I have a feeling the wont.. I havent seen any sand on site etc.. I did talk to the PB about them being close together and possible movement in the clay cracking them..they didnt seem too concerned.. well we will see. Wish I...

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    Well after a delay, the plumbers finally showed. They are on day 3 today, but here are a few pics after day two. Unfortunately, and right in line with my luck, we are supposed to have rain the next 3 days, so the PB put plastic down, and they wet and threw dry concrete on the walls of the pool...

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    Well it looks great. Unfortunately for our build, we keep hitting major delays.. plumbing wont be done until the end of next week, then steel to follow, THEN inspection. After inspection they said could be 3 weeks until gunite. And that is just the FIRST shoot, as they are doing the grotto at...

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    My wife would, I would not.. I think it is an eyesore, but I have a 2 year and 6 year old girl who like it. I have every intention of getting rid of it next year if I can haha.. My kids honestly prefer to go to the park or ride their bikes, scooters, etc. So I dont know if it is really worth...

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    Here are a few aerial shots we took, to show the layout. As you can see, my grass is already dying, in spite of all the manual watering I am trying to do, as they shut our sprinklers off a few weeks ago, then pushed the dig back, and here in TX IT IS HOOOOOOTTTTTT right now.

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    Every now and then I kick one haha on accident, but over all it worked out better than we thought. That river rock will surround the pool, so in the end everything will look uniform and like it was all built together.

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    Well we have two underneath that they say should light it up very well, and we will have two on top (all niche LED 80's i believe) that will add light to see where the edge is at night, as we have lights on the stairs but I didnt think about the top, and then the light will filter through to the...

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    So @Rich D , we are adding a couple of lights on top of the grotto now, and having the entire grotto now on its own transformer. Which allows us to control the spa, grotto, and pool (with bubblers) each individually in lighting. Also with the networking function in the Hayward lighting...

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    So 3 months and 1 DAY after I signed the contract, we finally started digging. That was yesterday, and we finished today. They said steel and plumbing is about 5-7 days out due to demand, and 3 weeks after green tag for gunite. So here we go with another long wait, but could be worth it. We...

    Pool size ?

    Go big baby!!! We are at 923 sq. ft for the pool and 100 sq. ft for our spa. I might have went too big, but hmm, we will see when it's in! I have 7 brothers in the area and well, wanted a pool big enough to accommodate the family!

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    Hey Rich, Your waterfall looks awesome! No, the table is not really meant to be used from the bench. I didnt want the whole corner booth feel when trying to get in. The inside of the grotto is 14ft wide with a 9 ft back depth. So I am not too concerned about swimming, but my wife did want...

    Possible New Pool In Central FL

    Our pool builder is requiring me to have 2 drains PER PUMP. I cant remember the exact words he used, but it was something like this. If you do not have enough drains, ie. 1 per pump, there is a suction that is caused that can hold a kid under water and is dangerous. Therefore they use more...

    New Pool Build in League City, TX

    Not sure how far along you are, but I was advised by my PB against the autofill, and to go with the hose bib. His reasoning was, if you have a leak, it can be really hard to detect if your pool is autofilling. You can probably detect or notice something wrong, if you are having to fill the...

    Possible New Pool In Central FL

    I am using Hayward as well. Their Omnilogic control systems is really nice looking. We are starting to dig this week. Just out of curiosity, we are having 3 pumps as well. One for a 14ft waterfall, 1 for pool which has 2 bubblers and a 6 ft waterfall, and 1 for the spa. Is this enough...

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    Thanks, like I said above, it is super hard to find some examples of modern grottos. But I sure hope this one turns out. I’ll post pics once digging and everything commences. Hopefully we start this or next week.

    New Pool Build - Keller, TX (DFW)

    Thanks! I am quite excited and nervous at the same time.. I hope I didn't bite off more than I can chew!!! And the L shape (well Stealth Bomber shape almost with the Spa) just naturally fit the area.
