Our design is officially finalized. I will share once we get the plans from the CAD operator. Due to some issues we ran into with our original design, depth profile, and step code, we decided with a geometric design. Everything happens for a reason though - we like the design better and it offers much better deck space. Here are the specs:
630 sqft surface area
17.5x33 excluding sun shelf
8x12 offset sun shelf
As you may have seen in my other posts, the sun shelf will blend/extend into the first pool step. Because of this, we had to either go 6-7" deep on the shelf or "17-18" (if we made the shelf the second step). We chose 6" since we have 3 little children (2.5 yo boy and 6mo boy/girl twins). Ideally we would have liked 8-9" but we compromised to keep our design. We will also have 3 bubblers, one for each child so 6" should be better for bubbler settings.
I did some more research on our pool equipment and am asking the following questions to our PB:
Pentair Intellichlor IC40 - how much to upgrade to IC60?
Pentair CC320 cartridge filter - is this undersized for our pool? How much to upgrade to CC420 or CC520?
Automation - How much to upgrade from Easytouch 4 to Easytouch 8?
Spa spillway - currently a 36" spillway with marble spillway. Any difference to widen spillway to 60" and use tile for spillway? We chose NPT Jules Rustic Blue blend for exterior of spa, interior of spa walls, and stairs, shelf, and bench markers (2 offset 1" strip lines)
Since our permit was already approved with the wrong depth profile, I am hoping our amendment will get through the city quickly. I'm desperately praying for a Christmas completion.
