I had a journal of our build, and I wanted to make a separate thread of pictures of our completed pool.

The link to the build is:

Here are the details:
Approximately 30,000 gallons
SWG
Diamondbrite aggregate
RiverRock on beach entry
3 waterfalls
volcanic bubbler on beach entry
2 umbrella sleeves on beach entry
Pool goes to about 6.5 feet in the deep end, gradual slope from shallow end starting around center waterfall
Tennessee flagstone coping
stamped concrete decking

We opened up the Pool June 24th, and thouroughly enjoyed the pool the entire summer.

East Coast Pool Concepts out of Manalapan NJ did an incredible job from start to finish. I would HIGHLY recommend them for anyone considering a pool in NJ/NY/PA area.

I cannot say enough about the quality job these guys did, the attention to detail, and the follow up. Even after the job was done, and I finished my payments, they were still checking up with me and stopping by to make sure all was going well.

They build a great pool, they are great to work with and they stand by their work.

Here is a youtube video of our pool:

Gorgeous!

What color is your concrete? And what is the 'stamp' pattern that you used? Looking for something similar.

TIA.

Very impressive and thanks for posting so many pix. Could I ask which DiamondBrite finish you used for the main pool area?

TIA, Thanks. Our stamped guys called it just textured concrete, but I have seen other names for it, such as rock stamp. I saw it first on this forum in a post by someone with a pool in Louisiana. I knew when I saw it that was what I wanted, so I showed several contractors the pictures and basically said this is exactly what I wanted. The color we ended up getting was called a sand beige, but again, I think all contractors have different color names. The thing I did not do was to seal the stamped concrete. It gives it a shiny look, and also gives it a slicker surface. I wanted a more natural, rustic look and the no seal really helps achieve that.

phatcat, the DiamondBrite is a custom color that our pool builder mixes up themselves. It is not a standard color. I believe they call it Pacific.

Thanks trhought. I had been scoping out your pool for a few years, and even though I went in a bit of a different direction, your pool was a huge inspiration.
