Sanitizing systems come in many variations and offer varying options. Automatic pool cleaners might be necessary. Finally, you can design your pool to use automatic control systems to regulate the water temperature, pH, and filtration.

Since exotic shades of marble and quartz operate on a higher margin-lower volume sales structure in the Austin area, they can push the price of your pool build to abnormal levels. Sometimes simply changing out luxury pool finishes for something more conventional can reduce your total cost by 25%.
Safety is more than just non-slip coping and proper fencing. Here’s a few things to think about:
- Is the pool lighted for night time swimming?
- Are your tile, coping, and plaster fixtures smooth and without shape edges?
- What is the voltage of feature lights around the pool?
- Is the pool deep enough for activities such as jumping and diving?
