Need help, suggestions, advice on what to do with this water feature. I'm about to undergo a large overhaul of the pool. New liner, and patio needs to be re-layed/re-leveled. Disregard the mess as I'm getting the area ready for the season. I inherited this pool, all it's choices, and all it's problems with the house purchase.
So this water feature 1. Really doesn't go and 2. Really has never worked. It's a plastic thing that just sits on a deck/patio that is composed of a lot of pavers and real hardscaping. It's also bowed and warped from sun/weather/age so that water would rather flow into the planter part than in the pool. Hence it's never really been used. It's main purpose in life has been to cover up the return line that feeds it that protrudes from the the pool deck. I can disconnect it with a union under it.
Since I'm about to have the pavers redone I have an opportunity to do something here. Looking for suggestions. Build something out of real pavers and do a bench or planter with sheer decent or similar?, Deck Jets?, Laminars look to be too much effort and cost for minimal effect. Cut off the pipe under the ground and abandon it all together and move on?? I have access to the line at the pad that I could just plumb without it.
Open to ideas or recommendations. If I were to ever do something with this now is the time. Something classy that doesn't look like an after thought for sake of having a water feature.
