    Flexible Trench Drain?

    My pool deck slopes away like it is supposed to, but about half of the pool deck is close to the house. The planters tend to get a lot of water in them on a heavy swimming day and collect dog hair (2 labs). I was thinking of putting in a trench draining "system" around the current pool deck and lead it away from the planters on the house side of things. My pool deck is curved, so I was thinking of some kind of flexible trench drain with a grated top and line deck near the house with it.

    I have had no luck finding something like this. Any ideas?

    Why not a trench with some river rock and this?

    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!

    Have you looked at getting a thin channel drain by Stegmeier or NDS? Their smallest systems, about 1.5" wide, are flexible enough to be bent if you want a small curve. But if you get a lot of water, I would recommend a bigger drain.. not only will it drain more efficiently but the grates have pretty classy options as well!

    Good luck!
