Pool Pilot Total Control
11 upper returns
12 low returns
2 bermuda skimmers
4 MDX drains & debris canister
Letro Autofill
1,800 sq. ft. tumbled travertine french pattern deck with no sealer

Perimeter: 28'
Size: 49 sq.ft.
Depth 3'-1' (water)
Gallons: 761

1 Intellibrite Spa
is10 Spa side remote
2 MDX drains & 2 SDX drains
18 waterway jets on two loops

Lovely! Where about in FL are you?

Beautiful pool!

RE: Finished Pool Pictures

That is SOME pool! Love the water feature and your travertine is awesome! Well done!

RE: Finished Pool Pictures

Looks great! Thanks for sharing!

RE: Finished Pool Pictures

chulaman....Congrats! Fabulous pool and backyard.

I love the garden leading guests out to the ameneties that lie beyond.

How do you like the SRSmith double-pole looks sturdy. I have their single pole setup and sometimes wish we went with the double pole arrangement...especially after missing those shots that rotate the backboard!

Also, I see you mentioned MDX drains and leaf you have a Paramount floor system....I did not see it mentioned and was curious how the pool is cleaned.

I bet the kids enjoy the slide, basketball and the waterfall by the stepping stones.

bobyoe, inthedrink: thanks


I love the SRSmith basketball setup. I have the commercial one that has poles set back more from the pool have never removed it. Its a bit deep where it is for my 11 year old but he will grow. I have another anchor on the other side for volleyball but have not used it yet. Once again, it will be a bit deep.

The leaf canister was more of a failsafe as there is no in floor system. I have been using the S3 robotic cleaner once a week since July 2009 without any problems. Once in a while I vacuum leaves using a hose driven leaf thingy...

And yes, the slide is a big hit as are the stepping stones.
