Breathtaking!! So gorgeous...outstanding job you guys did. I think I remember that you ordered your fire bowls from Phoenix Precast, but I may be wrong. Could I ask if the shipping was outrageous? I'm considering changing to these (originally wanted these, but got another type). We're still under construction. Your pool was a real inspiration while I designed mine. Thank you for posting your pics. Congrats!!

Spectacular! I love your backdrop of trees! Those look like our summer pics with flowers all in bloom- where are you located? Right now we have 3-4 inches of snow & ice covering our pool. Seems like it will be forever until we can swim again. :(

When I saw the 1st few pix, I thought to myself:

1) I wish I did that
2) Not exactly reducing the "Carbon Foot print"

until I saw the last picture and then I thought:

Hmm, there's my Green foot print.

Great pix too! It's a great idea to mix fire with water. LOL. I also love it when people put waterfalls behind firepits. It looks so cool as a contrast. Katherine

Thanks for the great comments.

The waterfeatures are Oasis Sheer Descents with Fiber Optics. Each Descent cost $500 and the fiber optic transformer was $500. $2k for the whole set up.

I am in the Seattle area and it's cold and wet now. The pictures were from last summer.

The firepots were ordered from Phoenix Precast Products
http://www.phoenixprecastproducts.com

...and yes the shipping costs more than the pots... $300 for shipping. It was worth it because I love the shape and could not find them locally. I even went to a precast business here in seattle and it would have cost even more to have them custom made.

brrrrr.....can't wait for summer!

Thank you for the info on the wok pot shipping from Phoenix Precast - I've looked at their website before. I'm sorry to keep bugging you about the details on these, but I may end up ordering two of these for my columns, too. Is it $300 per wok pot for shipping? Also, what size and color did you order? I may need the 36". Many thanks, poolmissy, for your help! These are pricy, but worth it in the long run as a permanent fixture..so I'm trying to decide whether to order these this year, and get a handle on the color choice, as they will be sight-unseen before I order.

The shipping total was $300 for all 3 pots. If you have them shipped be sure to be there for the delivery and open them up and inspect them before the delivery driver leaves. I didn't do this and 2 of my pots were chipped in the shipping process.

Also, I suggest ording color chip samples before you select a color. I ordered what was suppose to be a tan color, but the true color was very pink. It didn't look nearly like the color on the website. However there are a lot of pink tones in my stones so they look just fine.

Thank you for much for that info, Poolmissy. It helps me make a decision. I'll get chip samples before ordering. Enjoy your pool and fire bowls!!

The tan has been coming in pink for quite a while. They dont seem to care though.

Dang! So they don't really match the sample chips? Good to know, Poolmiss and just-a-pb. I'll have to be careful about ordering. Many thanks for the input!

HI please let me know:

1) how much did the fire bowls cost each? including all mechanisms, bowls, installation, gas line needed (if so, how many and is there another way around having a gas line?)

2) how do you get the water out of the column? some sort of pump? how much? how was the light installed? how much?

i am hiring a pool contractor and will show this to him, but i need to get approximate costs so i dont overpay.ind

if you don't mind, plz email me!

thanks

The waterfeatures are Oasis Sheer Descents with Fiber Optics. Each Descent cost $500 and the fiber optic transformer was $500. $2k for the whole set up. I paid an electrician to hook them up, I think he charged about $100. He did have to use a heat gun to splice together the fiber optics.

The firepots were ordered from Phoenix Precast Products
http://www.phoenixprecastproducts.com

The pots were $75.00 each and shipping all 3 to Seattle was $300.

The gas line was installed as part of the whole pool project so I don't have that part isolated from the whole cost.

The burner parts for the flame were ordered from www.fireplacestore.com. They are manually lit.

They run on a separate Pentair pump 1hp.

My pool contractor ran all the plumbing lines - there are 3 individual lines, to the pump. We finished the project ourselves. My husband built false boxes that we covered in Eldarado Stone.

Hope that helps.

What size fire bowls from Phoenix Precast did you go with? Looks like maybe 30" bowls?

Also, what did you use as the cap-stone (or coping) on the top of each pedestal that the firebowl sits on? How did you attach the bowls to the cap-stone on the pedestal?

Thanks a lot!

I have been looking for fire pots and only found 2 on the internet but each pot costs about $1800. to $3995.00 I do not want to spend that much. They will be on colums simular to yours at the side of the pool. When I looked at the web site where you purchased yours it does not list fire pots or bowls. Did you order the planters? Have you had any problems with them cracking?

Faith,
Yes they are the planter pots. We use these all the time, just fill the bottom with small pebbles or sand, and put the fire ring just below the top so it wont make the pot hot. You then can cover it with a little glass ect.

I love this look! I would like to add fire bowls on top of two small columns built into a retaining wall. At this point, running natural gas lines is not possible. Does anyone know a safe, effective way to create a fire bowl using portable propane tanks or fire gel?
