    FPH - Hotspot Energy Install Begins!

    You're absolutely right about the system not being particularly useful when it's cool outside, especially up in the frigid wasteland known as NY :poke::cool:. DrGlanton and I however are in the paradise that exists between Atlanta, GA and Jacksonville, FL. I don't know about my buddy, but for me...

    Hi everybody. Slow but steady progress is being made. We've had a couple issues come up here and there but all seems to be going well enough, it just feels super slow, and feels even slower with the holiday. Issues that have occurred. 1. Groundwater required some effort with the submersible...

    Rebar supports go in when?

    so, the steel guys aren't finished yet but they are done for the day. I think I've seen and read that the floor rebar should be on supports right? Is this something that is done once all the rebar is in and tied together? Is it standard of construction to do so? I don't want to be an Rear to the...

    Steel began this morning. They tell me they are hoping to shoot gunite Thursday or Friday. Measured and double checked all my sizing and I've got extra length and width everywhere by about 20" or so even with the pegboard in place. They tell me this is to give them room to build up the concrete...

    Can't wrap my head around price!!!

    My PB was middle of the road on cost compared to the other two qoutes and told me bluntly that "the days of a full pool for 30k are gone". The lowest qoute I got for 15x30 Roman, with sunshelf and 5 jet jacuzzi and Intellicenter automation was 57k plus incidentals like gas line hookup and new...

    Just spoke with the site supervisor and we'll have the step added. He says though, that I have to decide what I want to do with the jet that would go there. Apparently, they don't normally put bench at the front of the spa spillover so you can stand and look over into the pool. So, with 5...

    I am assured this is fairly common but our lot apparently was built up with alot of backfill during house construction. So, the dig was going great here in NE Florida and then they hit hardpan that appears to be mostly impervious. This means that with all the rainfall we get, the soil above the...
