Pool Remodel
 
…We started our pool remodel on Saturday, tear out of deck, tile and coping. I sat back and supervised. My plans at this time are to install new electrical and conduit, new drain lines and maybe flagstone the deck, I’m farming the rest out ie. Replaster, deck/platform for 5 ton waterfall, tile and coping...More pics to come...

Looks like you should be able to knock out the job in a coupla hours. :D

That's a pretty tricky looking little pool, Mike. Did I ever tell you about when I used to do custom pools? :D

Simple 02-03-2003 05:55 PM

No I didn't know about that...Lets here a bit.

You don't see many pools like that in my area....We have above ground and in ground with plastic liners.....I imagine this is due to freezing and thawing and it would prolly wreck havoc on that kinda construction....

Can those concrete pools be installed in colder climates?

Sure can JC we used to do quite a few of them in the U.K. The inside of the poolbeing tiled with glass mosiac.

Mike,

I only have two pools in my 30-year background. ;)

:idea:

John,

Would you be interested in flagstoning a pool deck 210' after I get the concrete work done? Or give me a referral. I'm not sure if I can do this myself...the pool people want a small fortune to do it. Would you know what the average cost per foot here in Houston is for flagstone with installation?

I’m using this post to keep family and friends throughout the country up to date with the progress…Hope you don’t mind. Besides I thought it may be interesting to see the transformation.

Pulled out the pump and filter…

You don't want me, and I don't want to do any more flagstone for a while. ;)

I'm guessing $8 to $9 per square foot.

Damn, Simple, y'all must live in a pretty rough neighborhood to hafta have them big-ass rock walls all around y'all's pools. :D

I don't recall what part of the country you hail from, but I can usually get that flagstone (the real rock type, thick-set in mortar) done for about $6.50 a foot hereabouts.

to install real flagstone in in my part of Ohio is $12.00 to $13.50 sq. ft. IT is alot cheaper to install decorative concrete ( a nice flagstone stencil you choose color) $8.00 to $10.00 sq. ft. :cool:

Simple 02-06-2003 08:56 AM

CX,

I'm in Houston, the nice area ;)

The pool people want $3,345.00 for 210 square ft. Comes out to $15.93/ft. We'll see how hungry they are after completing everything else and offer green cash...

Greg,

We thought about the decorative concrete but it's not the look we want.

New electrical is in...new Intermatic timer, j box and the big ticket item the "SAM Light" :

SAm, the world's first automated color-changing pool light, produces brilliant underwater color lighting effects that transform any pool into a luminous nighttime wonder. Featuring two bright white halogen quartz bulbs mounted behind a revolving color wheel, SAm can bathe your pool in any one of several captivating colors. Or, it can slowly roll through its color spectrum, creating a continuously changing underwater light show.
