How high is the pool? Need steps up to enter pool? Width of coping?

The pool is about 18-20" in height. There are no steps up into the pool. You can simply sit on the top of the coping and swing your legs over to get in. There are steps inside the pool to allow you to come up out onto the coping. Let us know if we can help with your project. Thanks.

Did you use skimmers and if so - how did you hide them?

We do have skimmers on this pool and the lids are stone caps to blend with the pool coping. Thanks.

Fabulous. Did you use full size skimmers? Or is your coping extra deep to accommodate? We are building a raised edge pool and contemplating all. Do the seems on your coping line up with the seams on the sides? Adore your pool - sorry for all of the ?'s.

my pool is about 40 by 20 but is is down below the deck level about 10 ft. looking for a cooler alternative if there is a stone out there, also it is a rooftop deck, so a lighter weight material would be great if there is one

Raised sides is more toddler safe, because they can't just simply toddle off into pool. Worrying about Little Ones safety is what has kept us from putting in a pool.
