    Greetings from Clearwater Florida

    Hello all.

    Surfing the net for ideas on better pool practice and found myself ashore here. Not new to pools but far from a pro either. Always looking for that fine line to reduce running cost and increase longevity of everything.

    Next project is to figure out how to deal with the fixed drain line from the DE filter. Then of to finish all the automation...

    Based on the equipment in your signature, you look like you have been around the (pool) block once or twice for sure. Hope you find the TFP site rewarding to your pool maintenance practices. Post some pics some time.

    Where did you find that rustic corrugated metal? I am looking to do something very similar.
    Those almost appear like there was a treatment done to them to have uniform rust.

    Actually, they are asphalt roof panels with high temp and wind ratings (hurricanes are great for wind surfing not so great for roofs). There is a little bit of insulation under for the heater and to aid in heat dissipation. They use them in industrial and restaurant settings- thought they would do well there.

    Those roof panels look like what I used on my pool hut. Ondura 4-ft x 6.58-ft Corrugated Cellulose Fiber/Asphalt Roof Panels. I've been very happy with them. Easy to work with and have held up great for 4 years so far.

    Shop Ondura 4-ft x 6.58-ft Corrugated Cellulose Fiber/Asphalt Roof Panel at Lowes.com


    oh, Welcome to TFP!
    Nice Pool and equipment shed!

    That looks like them. Not sure what make or model. Got them from co-worker; we work for a chemical company and these were slated as trash. They are heat and wind rated so good enough for me; bonus was matching my roof.

    Shed is a work in progress- still placing the pebbles, decking, camera system and lighting out there.
