After interviewing 4 builders, we've decided on one and are ready to move forward pending some tweaks to the dimensions of the design.
- Dimensions: 20’x35’ (14’x35’ swim area)
- Depth: 6 - 3.5 (left to right)
- Tanning Ledge: 6’x8.5’
- Raised beam 18’x12” - stone fascia w/cascade
- Tile: 6”
- Coping: Lueders Stone
- Spa: 7’x5’ (Raised 18” w/stone fascia)
- Finish: Quartzscapes Tahoe Blue
- Pump: 2HP Full Rated Jandy Stealth
- Filter: 60 Jandy DE w/full-flo backwash valve
- Heater: Jandy 400K BTU Natural Gas
- Controls: Aqualink RS-8 w/phone App
- Cleaner: Polaris 280 wit 3/4HP Booster Pump
- Lights: 4 Color LED
- Skimmers: 2 x2”
- Sanitizer: CMP Auto Chlorinator
- Autofill: Poolmiser
- For whatever reason, I appreciated the hand drawn and inked design vs the computer generated fanciness we saw with other PBs.
- We’re changing overall dimensions to 21’x30’ (15’x30’ swim area) so I can take some of my yard back!
- Not sure how weird it would be to enter on the left side of the steps into the deep end.
- We’ll also be pulling the entire thing in closer toward the house ~5’ or so.
- As far as equipment, we’re in Texas, so naturally PB strongly advised against SWCG. The Lueders stone coping is a limestone, so if we decided to switch to SWCG, I’d imagine we would need to choose a new coping material.
- He also advised against a variable speed pump as he said it takes a full 2HP to get the Spa spillover effect working properly so we would rarely drop the speed below the full 2HP speed.
- I do have the option to switch to Pentair equipment, so that’s something I’ll need to further research. Thoughts on Jandy v Pentair are appreciated.
- Need to decide on decking - Koolcote knockdown texture vs stamp. The stamp would add ~$2K and we do prefer the look over knockdown texturing
