    New pool with pictures

    We just finished our pool 3 1/2 weeks ago and can hardly wait for warmer temperature to jump in.

    Happy holidays to everyone.

    Torben,

    That is a beautiful pool. Between the SWCG (in your tagline) and the waterfall, I see a lot of pH rise in your future. Keep the TA very low to help reduce that problem and if that's not enough, you can consider borates. Happy Holidays!

    Torben:

    Gorgeous pool, love the waterfall. I echo chem's comments on the PH rise, happens in our pool when we run our small water fall with the SWG on, but no big concern, only have to add acid once every 10 days or so.

    Happy Holidays to you and your family.

    Thanks everyone.

    The water temp is currently 63F and we're getting closer to heat the spa and start the enjoyment.

    The pb is Laguna in ktdave's backyard who did an excellent job.

    Laguna was actually one of the builders we looked at. Their display pools were very helpful in helping us decide on some of our features.

    Glad to hear they did a good job for you.

    Re: New pool with pictures

    I know this is an old post and I am hoping you still check the sight. Great looking pool. I see your in Texas with a salt water system. It looks like it has been 5-6 years. How are your waterfalls and coping holding up? What is your coping made out of?

    Thank you,

    That looks absolutely gorgeous! I'm so jealous. Mind if we use it as inspiration for ours?
