    New pool deck, anything to add?

    I am getting my new pool deck poured in 2 weeks. I am wondering if there are any buried lines or anything I should think about adding before the deck is poured? I was thinking maybe wires for speakers, a hose line for a shower or anything else like that?

    You can never have enough electrical outlets. You may want a stereo, a blender, some Christmas lights, and the electric motor for a barbeque spit on all at once. Plus whatever devices haven't been invented yet.

    A fresh water line would be good, to tap onto for a shower, or an outdoor kitchen, or to wash the deck.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Run a conduit or two, in the future you will be able to run wires through it.
