From the customer:
When we decided to put a pool in last year we loved Gappsi’s ideas right from the beginning. Giuseppe’s vision for our backyard was exactly what we had imagined. The pool, the spill over spa, the stone work, landscaping, and the bar and built in barbeque turned out just perfect. It transformed our yard into a resort! Giuseppe was an absolute pleasure to work with, along with Kevin, Scott, Andrew, mike Specchio and Rolando. I look forward to our next renovation and working with the Gappsi team again! Eileen & Chris Smithown,NY
This project incorporates many elements. It was built in the rear part of the back yard and a black aluminum fence makes it its own secluded area and also keeps every one out of the pool area that might not be able to be supervised. The spill spa was built on a elevated platform with access steps on both side. The spill over is 24 inches above the pool water making it more dramatic and also makes the water sound to be heard all over the back yard. On both sides of the spa spill over we installed 2 addition water features that consist of simple resets that have a hole in the center that allows a stream of water come out and spill in to the swimming pool further enhancing the water sound in the backyard. The raised spa patio is large enough to accommodate launch chairs, four large columns built with Hanover chapel wall system and caped with 2 inches scogli di mare flamed and washed finished caps .these work as pedestal for the light fixtures closer to the pool on lower columns and for the henry studio large flower pots in the back taller columns make them stand more grand .the spa and the pool coping where finished with Gappsi elite collection of Fiorito travertine. The Fiorito travertine coping used is special cut in multisizes, to create a random looking coping to compliment the French pattern travertine pavers. The bar area and barbeque combo were also built with Hanover chapel 3 inches wall system in tan blend color. Bull appliances were supplied by Gappsi. The scogli di mare polished lime stone counter tops for the raised bar area and the barbeque area were selected from the Gappsi slab collection. The Fiorito pavers that were used for this magnificent masterpiece of backyard swimming pool area make it breathtaking to everyone that comes to the site. The soft colored natural travertine stone create a relaxing mood, walking bare feet on the travertine patio it is an unforgettable experience smooth and cool to the touch in the hot summer days it makes the all pool season much more enjoyable. The landscape designed by Rolando Adamovicz the Lynen cypress used create a beautiful and private background flower beds were filled with flowers and grasses and white large pebble rocks.The diving board id made on natural stone scogli di mare famed and washed to match the columns caps an exclusive design and product from the Gappsi natural stone collection. The swimming pool was built of the highest qualities. Gappsi swimming pool construction is unique due to the custom molds we design and produce .our monolithic one pour system creates a one pour pool wall, despite of the shape and size Gappsi will deliver the most outstanding swimming pool products.
we install 10 inches wide concrete walls with 4 rebar running parallel to each other .
2 at 6 inches below the top and 2 6 inches above the ground. And many verticals installed every 2 feet connecting the top and the bottom ones together. pvc plumbing pipes are used and direct lines are installed for skimmers and returns ,sound proof base are used for the filter and pumps to cut down on the noise generated from the motors. Clean fill is always used to back fill behind the swimming pool walls any grass or debris are always removed to prevent any ground settle ling. quality jandy equipment are used to make sure that you swimming pool will always be in perfect working conditions .
Gappsi pools method of installing a quality pool liner starts with the installation of concrete walls swimming pools. 10 inches concrete walls are poured as the pool walls, then a 2 inches wide flange aluminum track is installed on the inside edge of the pool walls ,anchored on to the swimming pool walls with concrete screws secured in to the pre-drilled holes in to the concrete. Gappsi only installs hard bottom pool floors to prevent food prints to be made in to the pool floor when walking or jumping in to the pool. Foot prints are mostly seen at knight when the swimming pool lights are on.
Creating a not pleasant look in your swimming pool. Gappsi will install sand bottom at costumer request only. Another way of creating a pool bottom is by using vermiculite,
This is a pre mixed ready to use material that comes in bags and by just adding water to it is ready to be leveled. The down side to this product that we believe is not the best is because after changing many liners we found that vermiculite gets allot of mildew and it is not a pleasant site to see .the mildew comes from the cork that is mixed in the vermiculite mix and by being exposed to water below the pool liner and the dirt below, it builds up mildew. GAPPSI WAY to prepare the swimming pool bottom is by installing 3 inches of dry pack mix of fine sand and Portland cement in a 3 to 1 ratio. This is the best method for many reasons:
1= cement gets stronger over time when exposed to moisture
2= does not build up mildew
3= it can be leveled to be perfectly smooth
4= if the liner needs to be changed in the future the cement base done by Gappsi will not need to be fixed or replaced .
Preparing a cement dry pack pool bottom floor, take a lot more work then any other method and a lot more experience and a much larger crew of people.
It takes average 10 yards of sand to complete the floor and this need to be mixed with cement and moved in to the pool and leveled.
It is very hard to mix the cement and sand in a dry form because it as to me mixed several times before it is used.
The skills of the personal that can build a dry pack cement swimming pool floor is far more then any other method because it as to be done uniformly thought the pool floor .
the results of a hard bottom cement floor is a very clean and flat perfect crispy look of the swimming pool floor liner especially at night when the lights are on.And if not built consistent, any imperfection will be very visible.
