Both companies custom design a slide at no extra cost and i'm just going by what one of them stated. I'm not sure how much water visually. Just really want the slide to be an experience but at the same time be safe for my family and friends.Melt In The Sun said:Wow! Gotta say, that sounds really high. Visually, how much water are you expecting?
The slides you posted links to require 150-200 gpm.
I have to agree with you Dave at slidescapes is johnny on the spot with responses to my emails.crabboy said:I bought our slide from SlideScapes and they were terrific to work with. Fiberglass is definitely the way to go, much faster than a cement slide will ever be.
I am the builder!! the excavator is the one with the experience. I'll update as progress is made.Heckpools said:Ill be honest and say your builder has more years exp. then i have years alive so... He probably knows better then i but Im thinking 4 skimmers, and also 3 or 4 lights. Id put one skimmer just about where the length line is measuring 42' near the spa, and actually another on the width line on the other side of spa. Then id put one on both sides of reef steps. A few feet out from the step on both sides.
PLEASE keep this page updated with pics, thats an insane pool bro, good luck with everything
Yes, I believe it's pretty common for them to flash the walls with gunite to help keep them from caving in while construction is going on.spearwarrior said:Is it possible feasible to excavate to pool then put a very thinlayer of shotcrete or the like to prevent a cave-in? I'd like to make some sort of progress but can quite afford to go from excavation to shotcrete.
