It looks great!!! I was surprised to read that people report such high heating costs with gas. I only had one summer under my belt with the heater but my gas bill was never over $100 for my two largest usage months. I keep it at 86. We hardly had rain so maybe that played a factor? I'm curious to see what my gas bills are this upcoming summer if the weather varies from last year.
You can always add the heater so no harm in waiting. Plus you may use the pool differently than you though so that may impact what you ultimately put in.
Can't wait to see water in it!
I am near you in the Thibodaux area and just had the gunite shot last Saturday. I need to move on the coping soon and am regretting my selection of the the original "Old St. Louis" brick. Where did you purchase the imitation from?
Looks great! Did you have any concern about the brick holding up to the salt water? I have New Orleans soft red on my house and would like to bring that in to my design.
Thanks for the info. I think that I will have to go with a new brick. I don't think the old soft reds will hold up. We will be getting our concept drawings from the PB on Monday or Tuesday. Hoping to get started in a few weeks. Building down the road from you in Hahnville. I may be checking back with you as I get deeper in to it. Does the water feature have a metal spillway?
