Looking for ideas as how to conceal my pool equipment.
Pad size = 4' X 6'.
My thoughts for hiding the equipment:
I'm not to concerned about the "noise" because I run the pump during the night hours (unless we have a heavy swim). My concern is protecting the equipment from the sun (and maybe because it's ugly). It receives sun from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm and the summer highs can reach 100 degrees. I recently went through all the connections stopping even the smallest drips/leaks and painted the PVC. I want easy dis-assembly of the structure in order to provide access to all components for easy repair/maintenance. Lastly I think proper airflow is in order to keep the pump motor cool.
Left to Right:
Blue lockers where the kids store goggles, flippers and such.
Living room window.
You can see the setup is right off the patio near the shallow end. There is a gate in the distance that we prefer guests use when coming over. I plan on making a paved path through the grass leading to the pool area.
