At the left side of this photo:
you can see the board my pool's electrical equipment is mounted to. I am contemplating replacing the AquaLink RS box and the old-style AquaPure (whose cover is warped enough to let rain in) with the PureLink unit (basically this puts the AquaLink and AquaPure into one box the size of the AquaLink except an inch thicker).
The board doesn't seem to be in very good shape. I'm not sure really what kind of board it is... it's splitting so bad it looks like several separate boards in the photo, but it's not (seeing as how the board attaches to the two vertical metal channels using just two bolts per channel). I'm thinking I might want to replace the board, since I'd have about half the equipment removed temporarily anyway.
What do people usually use for this purpose? And does this board have a name (electrical backboard)? Wood isn't usually a great idea here because there's lots of termites. I'd want to continue to use the two metal channels for support, not wanting to put anything new into the ground around all those pipes and electrical conduits!
