    HELP!! Need Opinion on shape

    While I like the look of free form, I also had limited space to work with and an easement , so to get the most pool space, we went rectangular.

    New Build - Louisiana

    The 3D shot of the equipment pad - make sure those lines are not run up through the concrete. If you ever need to make future repairs, that will make it much more difficult than just digging up some dirt.

    Steps in applying Magic Lube II to pump basket o-ring?

    Alright, Im a dummy. I looked and sure enough, there it was. Tt was embedded pretty deep to the top of the lid and I guess I was looking for something loose and ready to flop out. I have a red gasket on my chlorinator that likes to fall off when I open it up.

    Steps in applying Magic Lube II to pump basket o-ring?

    Does every pump have an O ring?? I would assume yes, but from day 1 , Ive never had one on my pump basket. Not sure if it was lost during installation or what.

    Fiberglass 16x40 DIY install (PICS)

    Flowable fill (flow fill, slurry) is like a liquid concrete w/o all the cement. Most mixes are low psi's and you can actually excavate back through it, if needed. It a very fast and efficient way to backfill as JP mentioned, it finds every nook and cranny.

    New Pool Build - Houston, TX

    I would think twice about queen palms. You may have noticed how many got wiped out with our hard freeze in Dec 2017. My neighbor had to remove the 2 he had. After doing some research, we went with windmill palms, very cold hardy.
