This 16’x32′ freeform gunite swimming pool custom constructed in Massapequa NY. The pool shell consists of 10″ concrete walls and an 8″ concrete floor. The pool was shot with gunite cement, over 6″ of over sized gravel base, 12 inches on center, 1/2” rebar metal cage and 6″ apart center rods in any areas that the pool is deeper than 48”. All plumbing is done with 2″ hard PVC schedule 40 piping. All of the equipment is Hayward including 400,000 BTU gas heater, a salt chlorine generator, ozone system, pumps, and cartridge filter. The pool is 46″ to 66″ deep which makes it a non-diving pool. In the deep end of the pool, there is a bench with special jets through which air and water are pushed at a higher speed to create a spa effect. Porcelain pool tiles were installed at the water line; the finish of the pool is cool blue diamond bright quartz. The steps and benches were highlighted with diamond shaped 2”x2” tiles. The coping patio and raised patio wall were created with Nicolock products. 6”x12″ bullnose, ridge stone patio pavers with brown inlays and mini colonial walls and caps are all in travertine color. From design concept to finish execution Gappsi provides Nicolock pavers supply/installation, gunite swimming pools, and landscaping.

Letter from customer to GAPPSI in 2010
“Initially, my husband and I wanted to only redo our front stairs. We had several contractors give us quotes, but no one could design what we were visualizing. Giuseppe at Gappsi changed all that. He worked over all the problem areas and did a better design than we imagined. When we visited the showroom, we decided to extend our project: we did our driveway and added a side patio. We used Amagansett 6×9 flamed and tumbled granite paving stones that we selected from the Gappsi showroom for the driveway, the walkway, and for the border of the backyard patio. We absolutely fell in love with and used large French pattern natural travertine pavers for the patio. We also added Hanover tan blend for the seating walls in the backyard and for the front stoop. Gappsi even handled the landscaping. Besides a great design, the team that worked here daily was so professional and friendly. We would recommend this company to anyone. They truly were a pleasure to work with! ”
