Well I must be crazy, but part of this is the DIY'er in me. Some work I am doing and some I am subbing out. So today was demolition. Last week was installing automation (Easytouch 8)(Screenlogic), new pump (Superflo VS), SWG (IC40) and some actuators. I will attach a picture of the tile and coping I have chosen. Trying to decide what I do with the dang wall. Should I do a water feature hmm not sure. Opinions are welcome.

Gotcha. If you are doing the coping yourself be careful its alot harder to fit like that than an install and then new deck. Dont be scared to trim that coping so the overhang is right if needed

Slow and steady... I have no idea about style I am an engineer and geek. I need opinions:

1.) Travertine around entire spa lip or
2.) Tile...

Now you HAVE to use the BLING tile on the spa. I would do it as the water line tile inside and outside the pool as well as on the top of the spa wall! NOW comes the hard part. That curve of the spa top could cause some problems if your tile artists are not true artists with a big saw. Is there a 1x1 of the same tile?
