Making a GFRC / Carving Concrete Pool Water Slide

This project is one that took a little time, but was spread out over a few months- just working on it periodically.  Using high amounts of chopped fiberglass (GFRC) in the concrete / mortar mix, a strong structure was created to the general pool slide shape.  Plumbing was pre-ran and hidden to include water for the slide and a few waterfalls.  The next phase was to use a carving concrete mix to build some mass onto the structure, as well as texture and tool it into looking like stone.  Total project cost was around $1,000 and involved about 80-100 total hours of work (for one person).
