Rectangle Vinyl Liner Pool with Auto Cover, vinyl covered steps across shallow end of pool, red ston

A southwestern feel was the goal for this custom backyard pool design in Berkley, Mi. The homeowner wanted a sport pool (depth gets no deeper than 5′) for sports in the pool, including volleyball. The patio was poured and colored/textured with a red/tan finish to accent the stone coping which was selected with the same considerations. The pool features steps along the entire shallow end of the pool, which were constructed out of poured concrete and covered in vinyl. The pool has an automatic pool cover (in a dark chocolate brown – which you should really consider if you are doing an automatic cover – it really helps to hide the dirt and debris, which will settle on your cover when it’s in use.) The pool equipment is Pentair, and this pool features a salt generating system (Intellichlor) by Pentair. The pool requires little maintenance – and the homeowner uses a Dolphin Pool Cleaner, as well as has the water chemistry tested regularly to ensure an optimum balance. Pools with automatic covers that have chlorine generators will typically not need to produce as much chlorine to keep the pool sanitized since the cover helps to keep the sunlight off of the pool, reducing the chlorine that is rendered useless by the sun. Make sure that you check your chlorine (Cl2) output if you have an automatic cover to ensure you are sanitizing adequately, and not over producing your chlorine.
