Gunite Swimming Pool Built in Massapequa, NY by Gappsi.
This Gunite swimming pool was built by Gappsi in Massapequa, south of Montauk Highway. Due to the high water table and to avoid dewatering the pool was built with a 6 ft deep end and also raised 8 inches high above one section of the patio.
The Gunite shell incorporates a cage of Rebars 12 inches on center and 8 inches Gunite floor and 10 inches walls. The pool size is 16×32 and built within the pool are stadium stairs across shallow end 16 ft wide, and in the opposite side a 16 feet 18 inch wide bench across the deep end to allow more sitting in the pool.
Beige quartz tiles were installed along the pool wall at water line. The pool plaster consisted of cappuccino quartzscapes
Quartz dust is much harder then Marbledust thus making the pool finish last 3 times as long as any Marbledust. At Gappsi we prefer utilizing quality finish and durable materials to provide our customers with long lasting and worry free Gunite swimming pools.
This pool also incorporates a beige autocoder that opens and closes in 30 seconds to the touch of a button. It is an energy saving, chemical free and low maintenance swimming pool. In this particular backyard with limited space the installation of a fence would have not been possible and would have made the pool and backyard patio two separate areas creating a less functional and esthetically unpleasing backyard.
The pool wall also incorporates a raised wall section above the pool coping with 3 sheer descends for a water cascading water feature. Fiorito travertine coping, pavers, and wall veneers were used throughout the backyard walls and patios. This stone is an exclusive natural stone product from the Gappsi stone collection. The pool equipment used was made by Hayward including the Hominologic control panel veritable speed pump, cartridge filter, salt chlorine generator, and ozone3 purification system . All plumbing consisted of 2 inches hard pvc pipes with 2 skimmers 3 jet returns and dual bottom drain.
The lighting package consisted of 3 led low voltage lights.
