Pool Movie Nights – Good Times With Friends & Family

When you want to get together with your friends and family without having to do a lot of work, you can set up fun pool movie nights. Here are some tips that will help you set up an awesome movie night in the pool without causing yourself to be stressed out. #1 – Make It a Potluck Everyone wants to have food when they come to parties but you don’t want to have to be stuck with providing all the food. One of the easiest ways to make sure that doesn’t happen is to ask everyone to bring a dish. You should make sure to ask what they are bringing so you don’t get a lot of cheese balls or all fruit dishes. #2 – Set Hours for the Party If you don’t feel like having a long party that drags on all night, you should set the hours for the party. You can have a long party but having hours lets everyone know what to expect and when to expect to be home. If there are kids coming to your party and getting dropped off, it helps their parents know what time to come back for them. pool movie nights #3 – Make it a Themed Party When you are setting up your party, you can make the party a themed party with the movie that you are going to see. An 80s fun flashback film might draw a lot of adults for a fun time and let the kids see one of the all-time best movies of our time. Can you think of any of your favorite films? Make sure to send out invites with the themed party note or you might have a lot of people that miss out on dressing up.

Planning Your Pool Deck

Since your pool deck is going to be a big part of your outdoor space, you need to make sure to properly plan it. With proper planning, you will be able to enjoy your pool without worrying about your deck function. Whether you plan your pool deck before or after you put your pool in place, there are things to think about that can make life easier for you once your pool deck is in place. Design Considerations

How do you plan on using your pool deck? Is it going to be used as a patio or is it more of a place to outline the pool and give it a little differentiation? The answer to this question is going to determine greatly how big of a pool you are going to need. You should think about the furniture you are going to be putting on the deck. You do not want it to be too crowded so get a big enough pool deck to give you some space. The elevation of your pool deck is another thing to think about. Where are you going to put the steps? Will there be multiple levels and areas? What about the retaining walls? How are they going to work into your design? One of the less glamorous parts of your deck design is drainage. You need to ensure all pool drainage goes away from your pool and home. If it is difficult to grade your pool decking in your area, you should install drains that will move the excess rainwater where it should be going.   The surfaces around your pool should be nonslip and light colored. You do not want abrasive edges for your pool coping and you may find it helpful to inset borders to define your pool’s edge.

Scenes from the Ultimate Pools Episode – “Kalani Cove Pool”

Temecula Appears Twice on HGTV’s Ultimate Pools

Being on “Ultimate Pools” was a tremendous honor for Jeff Boyer. He’s been enormously successful at building up his operation the past few years and has gone from a $500,000 a year pool builder into a $5 Million a year builder – truly an American success story if ever there was one. Jeff’s customers have the highest praise for the work he and his team produce. It’s not hard to figure out why, his craftsmanship, creativity and attention to detail make him one of the finest swimming pool contractors in the country. Watch the Kalani Cove Pool Episode of Ultimate Pools The Kalani Pool is the ultimate lazy river party pool. The pool utilizes a forced current to propel swimmers around the shallow and slightly narrow winding river design at a relaxing speed. The owners of the Kalani Pool had 16 pool builders bid the project and half of them said that they were unable to do a project of that nature. It wasn’t a problem for Boyer. For those who crave some adventure and exercise, Boyer was able to build a swimming-hole portion, deep enough for a jump off of the waterfall shelf. Watch the Great Grotto Pool Episode of Ultimate Pools Boyer’s Great Grotto Pool is a large, tropical-themed pool that boasts features such as: a jump wall of boulders, fire bowls, two slides including one that ends 5 feet above the water and a gigantic hot tub that can accommodate 12 party-goers. The large pool holds 40,000 gallons of water and Boyer incorporated the existing hillside into the design by adding gorgeous steps and hidden seating areas flanked with fire bowls. A swim up bar serves as the icing on the cake for the full-scale social scene that the home owners had envisioned.
