    Shed built over equipment pad..

    Since my back yard is 90% pool, the equipment pad had to be built right next to the patio dining area. Finally (after 4 years) I've had a shed built over it all. Not that the equipment is ugly or anything, but now I don't have to look at it, it's much more quiet with the pump inside the shed and the equipment is now protected from rain/snow/wind etc.

    Before:





    After:

    16x28 Roman, 55000 litres, salt water, Zodiac Duoclear 130 (mineral cartridge removed!!!), inground, vinyl liner
    Hayward Tri-star VS900 (1.85 HP) pump, Hayward C3030 cartridge filter
    Nine Techno Solis 4x10 solar panels, Jandy LX 250 natural gas heater

    I just hope it's got a lot of ventilation! It looks nice. I'd padlock it, it looks like some place the kids would want to build a fort in.

    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!

    Re: Shed built over equipment pad..

    There is one gable vent up high to the right of the interior picture. I still have to get the gas fitter out to run the exhaust for the gas heater up through the roof (by law here in Ontario, only a certified gas fitter can do this). He will have to add ventilation for the heater, which will be cut through the walls (one high, one low is what it shows in the heater installation manual).

    The kids want me to build bunk beds in there...lol

    Great job! I agree w/Richard that you should padlock it... too tempting for the kids.

    Re: Shed built over equipment pad..

    Thanks. It will be nice this winter to not see 3 feet of snow on top of all the equipment. Last winter, the smoked plastic cover on top of the heater controls blew away, never to be found. A new cover was surprisingly expensive. Plus, I have a place to sleep instead of the doghouse when the wife is mad at me...lol

    Re: Shed built over equipment pad..

    I want to put some type of shed over our pump station too. The only thing is, where my pump station is located a shed too high would block one of my bay windows. It would have to be no more than 5 feet.
    Good job though!

    Re: Shed built over equipment pad..

    Never thought of that before before the shed was built, but I measured and all is well. Filter, heater, no problem.

    recently built this lean-to shed, size is 4x8, put vents on the side and the small overhang has a vent aswell. I don't have a pool heater so hopefully it is enough to keep air flow going.

    Re: Shed built over equipment pad..

    I used these drawings for a baseline, and just made a few modifications to make it more convenient for myself, but these were the best ones I could find. http://www.construct101.com/lean-to-shed-plans-4x8/

    the shelfs will come in handy, I might build another one but I will wait and see how this works first... this shed will be real convenient for all our pool related stuff, I can hang stuff around the inside and even keep the umbrellas and other accessories in there.

    Re: Shed built over equipment pad..

    So the boxes that were mounted on your fence are now mounted inside on the shed walls? They are strong enough? I am looking for a solution for all my fence-mounted boxes.
