Good choice on the step. I’m going to ask them to add one to our spa when it’s time. We changed the plan at the last minute and I forgot to have them add it. Hopefully it won’t be a problem.
What else can I use for sparkle? The blue glass makes it too blue for my liking.Remember you'll lose a few inches once the plaster is on top of the shotcrete.
Be aware that we've had a couple of new pools have problems with the alalone- its a natural product so it "decomposed" some and made brown stains in the plaster.
Have you seen this? It is pricey but very cool . My son wanted us to get it. I wanted darker colors for the step trim so I didn’t get it, but if I had wanted white or another lighter color I definitely would have gotten it. Using this in a 4 square diamond would look good. Sparkle during the day and glow at night.Do they do white glass?
So you need about 100 foot run for the gas line. $31/foot. It is on the high side but not outrageous. See if some other contractor is hungry for the work.
Anyway, the electricians came to run the electrical stuff and set up the panels. It was dark when I got home, so I'm anxious to see the panel. The electrician also gave me a quote on running the gas line from the meter to the pool heater on the pad. The quote was $3100!!! Outside of the pool contract.
They finished the paver decking, stabilized the edges with concrete, and sanded the joints today.
