    AGP 18' round deck plans

    Pump Not Moving Water

    That's pretty much the idea. Link isn't working when I embed it. Here it is You can do it without the handy bladder thing, it's just not as effective. Stuff some cloth around the hose to fill up the rest of the space.

    Pump Not Moving Water

    Could it be a clog in the line from the pool? Maybe run a garden hose through the line from the pool or from the pump side and see if you can dislodge something with the additional pressure from the hose.

    @RonsPlc Are all of your deck segments alike (same dimensions)? It looks very similar to what I am building.

    I replaced the flexible pipes with hard plumbing today. I moved the bottom floor of pool deck in place temporarily so that I could make sure my plumbing would fit. I will need to move the concrete blocks and add supports once I'm sure it is where I want it. Any advice you have would be...

    Thank you for sharing your decks. You provided a lot to think about as well as inspiration. I decided to go with a modular design described in this article. The deck is essentially a series of trapezoids like the one below. My pool is a bit different from the example and I'm too cheap to buy...

    Algae in my above ground pool

    When SLAMing, how clear is clear? I had no overnight chlorine loss last night, combined chlorine is 0.5. I can see my feet through 4.5 feet of water. They are slightly hazy. I guess it can't hurt to keep the chlorine up at 12 for a couple more days to see if the water gets any clearer.

    Some really beautiful work @Lisbek and @Tpopz . @Tpopz how did you figure the angles on the stair stringer that comes down at an angle? I'm in NJ and the government here is really adamant that we pay hundreds of dollars in permit fees to do anything more complex than mowing the lawn. I'm...

    I'm planning on building a deck around our agp. I'm curious to see what you all have built. Please show me pictures. One design element I'm definitely going to incorporate is the hinged Fascia (deck surround). I wonder if I could somehow slide the solar cover down through this and store it...
