Hey there! Any recommendations for sourcing spouts/scuppers? Best looking quality I’ve found is on the Black Oak Foundry site. We’re really looking for straight pipes maybe with some patina. I’ve included photos of the other materials and the layout, as well as the best option we’ve found so far. Though I’m not sold on how bulbous it is. These will be located on a back raised brick wall.

Trouble I’m having is it seems every site has the same few design templates. Open to suggestions.

Cheers,
Amanda

Hi and welcome to TFP! I LOVE the waterline tile you picked out. Will you use it all the way around or as accents?

One thing that stands out about your pool design is the 3' depth. I would take that to at least 3'5" or even better would be 4'. The reason is you cannot do a full crawl stroke in 3' of water. Deeper will also lesson the slope to the deep end making for more useable play and stand space. Take a tape measure and see where 3' hits you and go from there. If you are doing the 3' for the kids remember they will outgrow the need for 3' fast.

For the scupper/spouts I don't have any advice for you as I like them all LOL!

Thank you! These will be all the way around but alternating with one or two of the plain 4-square blue tiles between so it’s not quite so busy.

This is definitely something we’ll bring up with our builder. He’s quite flexible and should have some feedback for that choice. Maybe there is not enough width between the sun deck to the back wall? Would need another step incorporated to go to 4’? Just guessing.

Going deeper will mean more steps needed but you have the room from swim lane and back wall if the design plan is correct. Good job on picking that up! You are off to a great start!
