Andover Pool

60' contemporary lap pool set in woodland setting with ledge outcrops and ornamental bamboo plantings. Cascading stairs lead to a lower fire pit area and continue into the pool below. Stainless steal fountains and ornamental grasses frame the pool edge.

Questions about fire pit - Love this pool! Does the fire pit have a concrete base at the bottom or is it just a "hole" in the concrete? How deep is the pit? Are the logs real or is it a natural gas fire pit?

Glad you like the design! This fire pit has a crushed stone base that also acts as a drainage layer. It is down about 15"-18" from the pool deck. This is a real wood burning fire pit.

How do you keep rain water out of the fire pit?

You should probably just cover up the fire pit when your not using it. That will help a lot. Otherwise don't ask me!

This fire pit has a drain in the bottom which directs the rainwater into a crushed stone dry-well. You could have a cover made but this option requires less maintenance and keeps the fire pit presentable at all times.

does the diving board actually spring or is it to jump from?

The diving board for this project is a custom mahogany platform that simply cantilevers over the pools edge. There is no spring to this board.
