Hey guys, im currently doing a total remodel of my 60k gallon pool here in Miami, FL.
Pool is 60ft long by 25ft wide, 7ft deep
Im working with a contractor, however im pretty much doing all the work. I figured i could do it since i do house remodeling/building/renting anyway for a living and have all the tools needed already and plenty of plumbing/design experience.
I'm almost done with the plumbing, and i wanted to check in with the forum and see what everyone thought so far.
Its my first large pool job, so i could use the some feedback.
SCOPE OF WORK
all new plumbing and new skimmers - original plumbing done completely wrong
All skimmers/drains/returns/intakes/deckjets have separate valves/lines for individual control
3 color lights and new conduit going in
4 deck jets
4ft sheet waterfall
automatic pool leveler
auto drain plumbing if rain overfills pool like it tends to do here in Miami in the rainy season.
Pool has multiple cracks in it that have to be fix.
Large drain system for patio area, since water was ponding next to house
5 large built in (cbs block/travertine/ledger rock) tree pots will be installed next to pool edge to hold large christmas palms
5000 sqft noce travertine patio is going in after its all done.
new waterline tile
pool will be drained and re-plastered by contractor when the plumbing/tile is done
new bonding wires
3 X Hayward SP1070 Skimmer
4 x Pentair Magicstream deck jets
3 x Pentair 5g color LED lights
Pentair T40FW autoleveler
Sheerdecent sheet waterfall
Existing Large Pentair sand filter - main pool filter system (i might change this out for a large cartridge system)
Hayward C17502 Star-Clear Plus 175-Square-Foot Cartridge Filter - for water features, oversized to reduce need for cleaning
Pumps - probably only need 2x 1hp pumps, water features will help circulate the water and reduce demand on main pump?
ive done all the calculations for flow rates.
im using 2in pipe for all plumbing for skimmers, water feature intakes (2 intakes spaced 10ft apart), and the 5 returns
30psi leak tests passed so far
1. multiple cracks in pool and pool has leaks. will require staples and hydraulic cement to fix...any tips on this?
2. how to fix cracks by waterline tile? just grind out, epoxy, hydraulic cement, or also more rebar/staples?
