    Help choosing pebblesheen color in Las Vegas

    Have you visited the SCP Distributor showroom? I believe there is a location off Cheyenne. I do not have any experience in longevity for the selected color fading or not.

    New Pool build in SoCal

    Your pool turned out beautiful. I like the hardscape, turf and the fact you have the pool isolated for safety. And absolutely love the drone photo. Well done!

    I can not add any answers to your questions, other than for you to include as much information regarding what you have ordered and model numbers. There are a lot of TFP members in the industry that can answer construction questions as long as they know what you're working with. How thick is...

    What's interesting about the Glacier Chiller I had installed, is that not a single one of the sub contractors that saw it felt I'd need it. Especially, the plumbers who plumbed it in. I responded with I did not want to get into water that was 90+ degrees. I wasn't thinking that covering the...

    @JenniferMarie90 an auto-cover can't hurt. Eventually the sun will deteriorate the cover but that should be a few years, at least. It will also stop evaporation rates when the cover is closed. It can limit SWG percentage when closed because there will be no UV burning off the generated...

    Well, after a snow day this past Tuesday. The deck crew came back out to finish the sunken pavilion. What do you think? We used Artistic Pavers and turf around the pool instead of mastic. We had something called Sierra Blend for the sunken pavilion. On to the Las Vegas City pre-plaster...

    For my build, I used my excavation contractor. You might try them or any of their competitors. They'll have skip loaders and dump trucks to all of the debris.

    Well... it snowed most of the night. I picked up my phone to text the decking contractor that you'll have to wait for tomorrow to see if the weather clears. There is too much snow to work in... Las Vegas?

    @BUT ITS A DRY HEAT No, I subbed the paver install job out. They cut 6” strips out of a 30’ x 15’ turf. So, theoretically, they could get 60 cut strips 6” x 15’ long. The paver squares are predominantly 48” x 48”. I/we like the look, too. @Nikilyn Yes, I/we chose the Shellock Paver...

    @mknauss Yes, I had the pool plumbers trench and add pvc for my manual fill line all the way over to my garage, 175'. Then I had another plumber, connect my softwater system through the garage wall and connect it up to the manual fill line.

    After the longest delay, I obtained and had delivered my coping and deck pavers. As an owner/builder, my project management skills failed me. I didn't think of the long game and lay out onto my spreadsheet with when to order next up items. So after tile was installed, with better planning, I...

    @BUT ITS A DRY HEAT we didn't want the 6"x6" pool tiles. After having that look at our previous home we just want something different. We almost went with a glass tile blend (mix of 2"x2", 1"x2" and 1"x1") but then we saw the upgrade price. When I spoke to the consultant at AquaBella Tile...

    @Turbo1Ton thank you for the info regarding the IntelliPH. I am going to have to call Pentair support. I would hate to return the iPH to my distributor or if they’d even take it back. I bought the Pentair IntelliCenter i8ps which is bundled with an IC40 and I returned the IC40 for the IC60...

    The decking sub will remove the forms, as far as I know. At least I hope so. I haven’t selected the decking material, so I haven’t picked the sub. I have scheduled backfilling the trenches and grading the back and side yard in preparation for proper drainage, decking and landscaping early...

    Tile has been completed, I like the way it looks. What does the TFP forum think? Waterline tile we chose 12" x 24" porcelain, that they cut down the middle for 6" X 24". This will have minimal grout lines. We used a glass tile blend of 2" x 2" and 1" x 1" for the spa and trim tile (seats...

    I am leaning towards Artistic Pavers. I have read of owner/builders using those pavers and pleased with the look and how they stand up to the Las Vegas heat and stay cool enough to walk on comfortably. I am still researching options, though.

    Pavers with autocover on free form pool

    Welcome to TFP! I don't have any experience installing pavers. What I do have is experience researching coping that is not poured concrete. I have been looking at Artistic Pavers out of Arizona. They have a east coast factory and a west coast factory. Their website might give you installers...

    During landscaping a block wall will be built to "hide" the pool equipment. We didn't want to hear the Glacier Chiller while it's running or the pumps. Although, supposedly, the chiller is as loud as 2 speed pump, from previous experience at our last house with a pool, we didn't want the pool...

    We are getting an auto cover. The second photo shows the auto cover box all steeled up. The motor side must be 36” inch beyond the side of the pool. It was most Important for us with 2 grandkids younger than 3 years old. Even teaching them to swim the auto cover will give us peace of mind.
