    Question Diving Board Identification and Replacement

    So I bought this house on 4/30, and it had that swamp out back. Well apparently someone, according to the original PB I found by chance, a contractor who wanted it for scaffolding, stole the diving board but left the base. I held out hoping it was at the bottom of the deep end, but thanks to this website, I can see down there now, and well, it's not down there.

    I did some investigative work and I think what I've got is a SR Smith Flyte-Deck II, the best-selling model of the biggest manufacturer of diving boards. Makes sense I guess, makes it easy. 11-01 is likely the manufacture date as the pool is from 2002 (written in concrete pool equip pad and matches up w/ filter manufacture date)

    Here's the promotional material for the diving board:

    I guess I need to measure the length from bolt to fulcrum to see if I need a 6' board (I'm assuming that's what I'll need)

    I think this is what I'll probably order unless someone has a better suggestion:

    Here's some pictures of my diving stump:








    I guess I'm just looking for someone to tell me that there's not a bunch of identical diving board bases that look just like mine that won't fit right.



    edit: patiently waiting for USPS to forward the package that has the 12V halogen bulb I need for that pool light. The ebay seller I bought it from first sent a 120V bulb. Now I've moved and nobody seems to know where the package is.

    Look at AO Smith diving board stands. Mine is exactly like this and you can use any 2 bolt diving board.

    Thanks! I googled them and AO smith appears to be the same as SR smith. Weird.
