We have plumbing! Any comments or any issues with what you guys see? Unfortunately I couldn't get pics of all the pipes before they covered them up with dirt by the pool but they looked fine.

Nice big pad and layout. Also easy accessible. Just curious, why did they install the inline chlorinator if you have a SWG? Is that a backup if SWG fails? Also, it is recommended to do a plumbing drawing and have it accessible. If you are not there and have to guide someone to check a valve position, it is easy to talk from a common layout. Great that things are winding up for you.

Looking good! I like the idea of different color finishes for the spa and pool. I thought about doing our tanning ledge a different color. It wasn’t expensive relative to the price of the pool but I’d already spent more than I wanted so I mixed the idea. Can’t wait to see how yours comes out.

Little bit annoyed only 4 hours of work has been done in the past 15 days - framing for the deck. The storms + possible hurricane hasn't helped and hopefully the deck area will dry up enough for work Monday.

In other news we finalized the pool finish. We ditched Pebble Sheen due to them having no smoother finish for the spa and are going with wet edge signature moonlight for the pool, and their primera stone in Starfall for the spa. Hope it looks good with the different colors! I'm also glad that wet edge has color offerings with 0 or minimal brown pebble depending. I hate brown pebble filler! Lol

You will be very happy with the Wet Edge product. We have Primera Stone for all pool and spa and have really enjoyed it. Have had 3 pool seasons with this thus far. Ensure you get the warranty info from the PB and confirmation from Wet Edge. BTW, who was your PB (you can PM me if you do not want to publish.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to name the pool builder but it's Mike with Prizzm Waterscapes. He is a tiny builder that does around 10 pools a year I believe.

HermanTX the builder didn't want me to go salt just like most builders in texas. He said in his pool maintenance company he has had several people switch from salt to in line chlorinators and he wanted to have it in place in case I wanted to switch later so I didn't have to have it added afterwards. He didn't bill me for the $70 it cost so whatever lol.
