Wow, that looks great and really deep! What are your depths?


 o
RE: AZ pool in progress (kind of.........)

Not really deep, only 3.5 to 6.5 is all. The one picture is taken from a balcony on the back of the house, and the back of the pool is raised so that might make it look deeper than it is.........

I will have to look up the tile info. We just wanted alot of blue! Caribbean Pools was our builder and we live in Gilbert. Our deck just got finished on friday so now it doesn't look like a sidewalk any more. We are going to ad pavers in areas to add to the deck space. A firepit will go in the bulge toward the fence. We have alot of work to do now..........................

It really looks great. I was just curious because I chose one called Blue China by Noble Tile. The photo on their website doesn't look anything like it in person. (It looks more like the photo of the Peacock Blue.) At first I was concerned the tile was too dark for the brighter aqua color, but seeing your darker blue tile w/ it, I can see how well it works together. I already have an existing kiva and BBQ area that we put in about 4 years ago and the BBQ counter and kiva banco are tiled, so I had to coordinate my pool tile w/ that. The tile I chose for the pool looks like stone/slate w/ the terra cotta and beige tones of my existing kiva/BBQ tile, but has a lot of blue in it, too. Again, well done!

PS--tile link

Meant to add a link to the tile. Again, the Blue China tile actually looks closer to the photo of the Peacocock tile in person. It is not as dark and gray as it appears on the website.

RE: AZ pool in progress (kind of.........)

I love that color, too. I chose one called "Tea & Cream" that looks like it might be similar.

RE: AZ pool in progress (kind of.........)

If you mean the acrylic deck, it's called "sierra peak". I know this because they left me a can for touch ups. I am meeting with the landscaper tomorrow! I can't wait to get rid of the "dirt look"

RE: AZ pool in progress (kind of.........)

Nice pool,

Is the infloor system working well for you? Which one did u get?


 o
RE: AZ pool in progress (kind of.........)

It's the Polaris Caretaker system with the "leaf trapper". I have had to do like next to nothing as far a cleaning this pool, and there are trees and now bushes as well since I did the landscaping. Can complain about the in-floor, it has been great!

RE: AZ pool in progress (kind of.........)
