    New pool build

    This is my second pool in San Antonio. Learned my lesson from the first one (Blue Haven). Using Southern Pool and Spa. I know these people from when they were with Premier Pool and Spa (own company now). Free form 88 square feet. Roughly 18 (middle) by 30. 16 inch Stamped concrete cantilever coping and salt cured brown dyed decking. Going with a Hayward Prologic ps-4, Tristar vs, Hayward booster, t-cell 15 (over kill, but they included) and Jandy sftm 25 sand filter. Only water feature is a Rio rock water fall. 3 returns and 1 skimmer. 2 led lights. Is there anything I'm missing. Been a few years since my last build and I think I got what I want/need in this one, but I wanted to be sure. BTW I'm on week 3 and decking and equipment go in tomorrow. Lol

    It sounds like you're all over it! Being a second time pool builder I'd say your build will be flawless. Do you have plans you can share?

    I tried to post more pics, but it didn't work. When I'm sober I'll work on it.

    I love everything about that design! There is a good swim lane, the shape is very pretty and there is little wasted space! What will your depths be?

    The only thing I would tweak just a tiny bit is this.....see the steps? Look where the bottom steps meets the wall....those two points could be "dirt catchers". Just something to think about. No real big deal but would be easy to smooth out the sharp corners.

    Re: New pool build

    I'm happy with the salt cured decking. The coping gets another stain before they are done.20180217_174025.jpg

    My water fall is on back order due to a huge Margaritavill build in Jamaica. At least that is what I was told

    This site is so hard to post to. Just saying.

    Re: New pool build

    I am sorry to hear you having a hard time posting here. If you would like to PM me and tell me what the is causing you the problem I will see if I can help.

    Waterfall on back order?? NO!!!!!! Will you be able to keep going on the build without it?

    That coping and decking looks good!

    Re: New pool build

    Just weird trying to post multiple pics. I use my phone so maybe that's the problem. And yes. I'm on hold for the water fall

    No. The coping is cantilevered and going to be stamped/stained 3 colors to look more like flagstone
