    Owner Build W/ Rock Blasting - Loomis, CA - Equipment List HELP

    I had a water issue and the plaster company wouldn't do it until the seepage was nearly gone. We also drilled holes in the side of the shell to help the water drain, I put in an additional french drain above the pool to help, finally they were satisfied and it was plastered about 2 months later...

    Natural Pools discussion

    Sorry to hijack but you don't see this mentioned too often. We have backpacked from tuolumne to the valley via halfdome twice and that cascade is incredible, the smooth granite is almost like a pool, and the current a giant swim jet, cold though. Last I was there was 1999. You must have been...

    Heat Exchange or Solar Electric?

    That comes out to 1.31 per kwh for you based on last years production, my cost is 1.50 per kwh based on after tax cost divided by 20565 kwh produced last year.

    Heat Exchange or Solar Electric?

    I was in about the same position as the op of this thread. I now have a 12.1 kv ground mount system that was 44k before the tax deduction. I went oversize to allow for future electrical demands. My payoff was 6 years, only 4 more to go. As of a couple days ago my meter was 1463kwh lower than...
