Natural stone diving boards don’t rot or warp. In this project, 20 people could gather on the diving board. This was a large slab of Elite Blue Granite.
Colonial warns that it is important not to do anything dangerous on a diving board, and advises that diving boards get placed high enough above the water so that if someone comes up from a dive they can not bump their head on the bottom of the diving board.
The liner for the pool above was black, to give the illusion of very deep water. This Limestone diving rock was approximately 7″ thick, 4′ wide and 16′ long. We have some amazing sized pieces of stone here. One of our three generation dealers (from PA) was here and laid his eyes on a slab of Harvest Gold Limestone that was 4″ thick, 3 1/2′ wide and 22′ long. He had never seen pieces that large before that would hold together and stay in one piece during extraction. Before the day was over he bought it. When it was in his inventory, it was purchased for a fireplace hearth in a golf course club house. Both they and us were happy that it could stay in one piece to be enjoyed by many visitors.
This is a smaller Elite Blue Granite waterfall.
This contractor in Northern MI, USA used Elite Blue Granite steps as the overflow between the upper and lower pond.
