    Ran Pump for 14hrs

    My pool guy said the best thing to do for the equipment is to run it constantly-it will last longer—instead of turning on/off. Though it isn’t good for utility bills.

    I won’t. Got 3 hoses going at same time. Hardly any water pressure inside the house—told my wife she can’t take a shower tomorrow—HA

    Suz, I figured you would especially like it since you are lightstreams fan. I was trying to impress you. 😄

    I chose the tile on my own. My permit took 6 months so it gave me time to research online (otherwise I would have gone with the standard builder suggestion and not known any better). Not sure how I found lightstreams but I did and when I saw the site I knew I wanted the peacock—I actually...

    You guys are funny. Here are a couple shots of the spa. They even put tile on the drain cover. Tile for spa is lightstreams peacock 1x2. Bar stools are covered with a mix of peacock, royal blue and agean sea jewels.

    Peacock on the spillover and edges. Gonna completely fill the spa with peacock too. I’ll have a bunch remaining and at trying to figure out where to put the rest.

    Piers

    You are lucky. Our home builder buried 4 houses of trash in our backyard so all the soil was bad. They took out 40 trucks of dirt and brought in 40 trucks of good dirt. We also have 15 piers and 200 ft of retaining walls.

    Sunshelf/Baha Shelf depth

    Yes. I think we actually have 3 umbrella sockets around the pool. My wife likes shade. I tan great and prefer sun as a lather myself in baby oil. HA

    Sunshelf/Baha Shelf depth

    We are doing shotcrete tomorrow. Curious what your opinion is for depth of sunshelf. Pool builder suggests 15”. I’m thinking 10-12”. We want it deep enough to “feel” the water, but shallow enough for our dog (chocolate lab) to be comfortable enough to walk around. Pic is attached PS—any...

    Peacock gonna be used as waterline tile, and inside the spa which has a rolled edge. Also, gonna accent the benches and steps with it and figure out where to put the rest if any is left over. It is the most beautiful tile I’ve ever seen.

    They were moving locations which is why they forgot. I’m doing a rolled edge spa so putting a bunch of tile around that, inside it and on its face. Also, using the peacock as the water tile and on benches and stools. It should look killer!

    We signed the contract in February. Permitting was brutal. Based on my reading here, I made sure I was covered on equipment—probably overkill. Thus, I’m good on that but thanks for asking.

    Experienced Lightstreams first hand. Ordered 350 sqft of peacock and they forgot to make the tile. Fortunately I ordered so early it didn’t affect anything. They now know me very well so I don’t think they will forget again. Thinking about making a different color on each bar stool.

    The primary function of the bar stools will be to watch TV—We are putting a sunbrite on the wall which is under the deck (deck isn’t shown on the pic)as my goal is to be able to sit in the pool and watch games. I believe I will just put in standard shotcrete stools and not seal with steel. I...

    Hi everyone; We start digging tomorrow and this was just brought to my attention. Based on what I have read here, I required a salt water system even though my builder tried to get me to do the ozone/I’ve system. As you can see on the pic, I have 4 bar stools sticking out horizontally from the...
