JZ actually finished up his pool back in April, but I've been too busy to follow-up. I finally got around to visiting him last Friday and what I saw was spectacular ...|
He started out with a pretty standard 3'-4'-5' plaster play pool, but added a very elegant set of 4 lion-head scuppers for the water feature and went with a very exquisite imported Cantera stone tile from Mexico for the decking. Here is a picture of the water feature:
The scuppers are attached to a raised planter where he's got some exotic vines growing up a trellis behind each scupper - very nice touch!
You can see the pool design drawing, depth drawing, and a plumbing schematic along with the rest of his story write-up here.
