It’s about that time of year family’s start thinking about Pools.
I’m starting a thread to show some of our builds/projects to showcase what we do. Also to give people ideas of what can be done with pretty much any size back yard. I will start off with some old and current projects. And will update every week or so with progress on jobs etc.
We do new construction and remodels on residential and commercial. Pretty much anything outdoors, specializing in anything water related.

Thanks Dave. I’ll keep uploading, but seems to only do 10 at a time ish. Originally tried 60 or so. Sat for hours and started deleting, lol

I may end up out there this week to drop more parts for AJ to lose. If so I’ll come over and we can come up with a design

Ya that was a serious challenge, hard to tell from pic but that spa is 11ft round, 24 jets, deck jets actually coming out of infinity edge with minimal disturbance to edge flow, the trough ( catch basin for Pool) seconds as a baja around the spa that could be heated to have a hot baja and still have the cool baja inside the pool. Pool was over 100ft of infinity edge with straight and radius edges around perimeter All overflowing evenly off of a single variable speed pump.

I'm getting ready to re-do my yard after ripping it out last weekend. I'm a little higher in elevation so I'm going to try something out of the ordinary for so cal landscaping and use more of a highland/mountain colors and plants.

Does anyone know the actual name of these damn trees. I can't for the life of me figure out either the scientific or common names for them:

I believe they are pine trees and one of the common trees for Christmas. Noble fir maybe?

Just curious if you are off the 15 in Highland?

LMAO!! “Of the Christmas variety”

Yes they look like pines, I’d say - western hemlock, which is odd to be planted on a newer freeway because they’re not drought tolerant

A few rdp members Pools/yards we did last year or so. I’ll continue updating with more jobs, progress etc... every week ish :D

I love it when customers send pics of their families enjoying backyards we helped them create. I love what I do, but that stuff really makes it worth while.

Yo Mello......what do you like for pool cleaners? Thinking about changing mine out this season. Not looking to spend like a grand on one though. :D I currently have the Zodiac MX8. Pool is maybe 15x30 with a 8' deep end.

We are looking at redoing our back yard in the next 5 years. I would really like to do a sunken bar down to the level of the pool with a swim up section on one side and a normal bar on the other. Will probably end up doing a new deck with a normal built in bar and reglaze on the pool. We are going to have to cut into the hillside and do a fairly major retaining wall that will probably cost as much as the whole damn project. Do you service OC?

Yes it is removable. We used a company called Aquaguard Pool Fencing here in SoCal to install. They put little inserts into the concrete deck that each of the polls are inserted to. They are in their pretty tight so removal and reinstall takes some time to get it all right again, so we rarely remove it, but do occasionally when we have party's and whatnot.

The last pool is bitchin. Does spa not spill over?
Thanks, Yes it spills into Pool under coping. And Pool drops about 4ft in to trough on hillside. That Pool is tiny like 12x24 but has 8- 28ft deep caisson’s and grade beams under it to support it. :eek:
