Hello everyone and thank you for this unbelievable site, my family and I moved into our home on christmas day 2011 and were fortunate enough that it came with a beautiful 16x32 ig pool. Last summer was my first experience with a pool and I did pretty well, minus the one and only water incident (cloudy) the morning of a HUGE party (lucky huh?).
I just found this site about a month or two ago and have been on pool overload ever since, what I have not stumbled across or maybe can't find because of my lack of knowledge is this:
I will be tearing up 800 sq ft of existing patio that butts up to the 4' strip going around the pool, and also a complete equipment relocation. With that being said, what can I, what should I, or what do I make sure I take advantage of while the patio is torn out prior to the new stamped concrete patio being put in?
I know you all need more information and pics but I will have to get that when I get home to make sure I am 100% correct on everything (I just had a bit of time at work right now to start this topic and this is all I can think about). I do have a sliding board, a retractable fountain that comes out of the bottom, 2 return jets, one skimmer, and what I believe is a port for a vacuum but the line is blocking that and the pipe is stubbed out of the ground by the pump but not hooked up to anything.
