Greetings to all,
I'm updating my pool, including building a flagstone pool deck going around my pool.
I fell for the beauty of Pentair MagicStream Luminars recently. I am most likely doing this project with the help of a local PB. He hasn't even installed these before but believes I'm asking for trouble, first, because we like in Kansas and must winterize our pool every year, second, because these will be operating through our flagstone deck and would be difficult to service later.
I'm starting to believe his judgment on this. Can others in here with luminar experience please advise me on this one?
I'm starting to think (after watching plenty of youtube videos on making your own luminars) it would be cheaper (and perhaps more entertaining) to make something from scratch above ground, giving me the "bells and whistles" for a low cost and when it poops out no big deal! Winterizing? Disconnect the hose nozzle, drain it, and toss it in the basement...
It sounds like I've answered my own question, but would enjoy the read of experts who have experience with luminars.
