PHOENIX -- This pool started as a remodeling job and ended up being a very elaborate project with two pools in one.

There are several water features and a Jacuzzi.

But the most interesting thing about this pool is that it is actually two pools in one.

"I came up with the idea of adding a diving pool and connected it for several reasons," said Cohl Workman with Thunderbird Pools & Spa. "The customer needed some physical therapy so he can heat this smaller pool up. When you have a gigantic pool like that it's really hard to clean and heat."

So what looks like one pool with a bridge is actually a diving end separated from a shallow end by a wall.

"There's two different structures here and they're tied together and then we did a bar area," explained Cohl. "So when he's entertaining he can have people over here. He can have this warmed up. He can have the spa running."

The backyard looks like a resort with special LED lighting, and firepots.

"All of the functions and all of the equipment are controlled by an IntelliTouch computer so these computers can be tied into the home automation they also can be controlled by your iPhone," said Cohl.

Thunderbird Pools & Spa will build about 80 pools this year. Cohl said the majority of customers want some type of water feature.

"We can design the plumbing schematics and the pump configuration to really get the pool clean. Do its job, because there's nothing worse than coming home and your pool is dirty."
