New build construction in Folsom CA - Input please

ChrisZTTMarch 17, 2014

We are putting in our first pool and I was hoping the more experienced people on here could look over the drawings and the specs and let me know if we need to add or change anything. I am not sure which Pebble Tech to go with, we want something blue like the the bahamas or such.

Any thoughts on improving the layout or adding/changing things would be greatly appreciated. As I said, this will be my first pool, we picked El Dorado Pools to build it. We have spoken with several people in my neighborhood who have used them and all have given great reviews.

The entire backyard is getting done including a BBQ area and new patio. We also plan on adding a cover over the patio in the near future. No decisions on that yet.

Once last question. I was considering getting the Magic stream laminars, basically a deck jet with LED to make them light up at night. Anybody have experience with those? I have 4 young children and I want them to have as much fun as possible in the pool.

29'x21' at longest two points and about 19' to 20' at shortest points

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

We are just starting this process (in Southern CA), and just started looking at contractors. I'm sure I will start learning what all those technical terms mean soon, right now I am clueless. Looks like a really nice layout! Can I ask what the budget is on this?
