By Happy Gappsi Customer
Natale Family – We hired Gappsi to design and install a swimming pool in our back yard. It was a challenging job because we live on the water and we have a high water table, even though we did not want a diving pool they had to do a dewatering system. Our pool has steps across the entire shallow area that we use to go in and out of the pool as well as sitting on them as benches, they have thick soft cushion under the liner so sitting on the steps is comfortable. In the deeper part of the pool they built a ledge across the back pool wall so when the kids swim across to the deep end of the pool they can stand on the ledge without hanging and holding themselves up from the pool coping. Gappsi installed a 20×40 rectangular pool with an automated swimming pool cover, we have small children and animals so our pool is safe and stays clean and the water stays very warm without having to run the heater as often, we decided on the dark blue cover for its looks but it turns out it generates heat from the sun and keeps the water at a comfortable temperature. Gappsi introduced us to travertine pavers which we decided to use for our entire backyard patio as well as the pool patio. The Travertine is not only beautiful and one of a kind, it is also not slippery and does not get hot in the sun. For the pool coping we used 2 inch thick travertine with matching coping over the pool cover box. The entire pool patio is a raised patio that was built with natural mint sand stone for the face wall and Hanover coping .A spectacular round staircase that leads to the lower patio where the fire pit area is located close to the bay. Gappsi completed the project with the landscape, they planted huge trees to help create privacy on one side of the property near the pool. Starting with Giuseppe designing the pool and patio, Kevin building the pool, and the masonry crew completing the masonry and stone work, and finally Rolando installing the landscaping, we were very happy with the entire project. We had to deal with only one company for all of our needs and the job went swiftly and seamlessly. The entire crew at Gappsi are very talented craftsmen and were all just as happy to see our project come together as we were. They created a pool and patio to accommodate all of our needs and made suggestions on materials that we couldn’t be more pleased with. When we entertain in the summer or even when it was just us, we felt like we were at
