You will notice that the decking is varied more than anything else pertaining to the pool. The decking is really what will set your pool apart from others. Most people that had the complete deck done while the pool was being installed had us do 12’ on one side, 4’ on the other side, 6’ on one end, and 8’ on the other end.

So there you have it folks, this is what people where getting installed on their pools in 2013.
