Hello everyone! Sooo I am going to keep this log of my DIY project to help keep me sane! I am sure others can relate.
So the pool was in a home we purchased about 5 years ago. In that time we have put in new liner, heater and winter cover. My family has greatly enjoyed having a pool and I have learned tons about them. Mopstly from this site, also trial and error! Now onto the project... Last season toward the end I noticed a water leak when pump was running. I bypassed it for the season and closed it last year. Now I have started the project, with hopes of completing in 2 weeks or so. The weekends have been washouts here in PA, so I am working around the rain.
Heres a list of things that I will be replacing.
return line and skimmer line
all piping at new equipment pad
decking and railing
With the help of a freind, we will be doing this whole project ourselves. Fustrating but rewarding at the same time. I take pride in the fact that I do these projcts on my own, not relying on contractors. (well except for electrical work)
Heres a few pics of the progress far..
I was "lucky" that I was able to dig outside of concrete to replace the lines. Minimizing the concrete replacement. Decking was ripped up a few weeks ago and will be replaced along with a new railing and stairs to pump pad.
This is my old piping and equipment layout. I have a new pad which all this equipment will be moved to and then re-piped. Also will be having some new conduit ran to heater and pump. Along with adding a receptical to bring area up to code.
I hope you guys follow along! Thanks Chris
