    Needing help "Boxing" around skimmer / Pump and Filter

    Hello!

    I have a 16 x 32 Doughboy Sunk in pool. It sits about 3 feet or so in the ground on most of the areas and goes 7 1/2 feet deep in the middle (sports type pool). Anyways, we decided to deck around the entire pool, leave a 3 inch gap under the top rails for pool cover access and ease of replacing the liner down the road. We are now to the point where I need to deck around the skimmer and pool pump / filter.

    The skimmer I am thinking about creating a box around the skimmer with an access hatch on top. The filter / pump I am going to deck around with a box of some sort (possibly making a table top over the box for drinks / seats as it is perfect height for that.) that will allow easy removal and access to the pump.

    I attached some pics of the skimmer / pool pump etc. Showing the deck height with the deck boards. Any help and guidance would be great. I have never done a deck build before and am surprised I was able to get as far as I did with no blood loss and the deck being level!!!!

    I can take a picture of ours when I get off work this afternoon. If you search, there are a few threads on this subject. I had this one saved.

    So sorry, I forgot about pictures. I hit 65 and the mind went!! My husband isn't a carpenter, but it worked for us.
