    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Jay... Looks great!!! I have a question... It looks like you didnt you use any spotter tiles on your steps? My PB said with the pebblesheen the steps will stand out a little because of the different depths of the water and the tiles were not nessasary. What do you think? Do you wish you would...

    Yes... I really liked the Pentair stuff when I was doing my research... I am hoping the 4X160 will help with utilities, the Whisperflo will only be on when we are out there for the most part since it controls the water features. How do you like your equipment so far? Thanks,

    Jo, I know you sent this to Jay, but I thought i would chime in as well. By all means do your due diligence. Check with multiple pool builders... remember bigger is not always better and look for the ones that are service oriented. Find someone that wants to do it right, on your time table...

    Our number came up! The Excavators showed up yesterday and will finish up today. They are using a Trac-hoe and a Bobcat. They warned me it would get really bad before it gets good, and they are right. It was an interesting day yesterday, they dug even though we got just under a half inch of...

    The City of Corinth, Texas requires that the Servicing Electric Company approve the construction plan before they will issue a permit. So my builder had to send ONCOR (Formerly TXU) 2 copies of the construction plans for them to approve. They city also required a drainage report from a...
