    Not a bad idea at all. Im thinking granite for countertops. Really like the idea of tile for the inside walls. I believe they are going to work on the pavers soon. Hoping that will give my wife a better idea of what it will all look like. Also going to make sure they waterproof both sides of...

    Bleach substitute

    I pulled the SDS sheet on it. It’s just 12.5% bleach. Edit: well it also has a small amount of lye. So it may raise your pH more than traditional bleach. https://www.splashwash.com/application/files/1115/8801/7930/SPLASH_12.5_Pool_Shock_SDS.pdf

    They have been playing a little more with the travertine coping. I really think it will be nice looking. The large pavers are what we chose, they brought a few to show. I’m thinking granite for the bar. I have granite in the house and thought about making this match. Not sure on that front...

    Don’t really know how they did it to be honest. It’s been awhile now and we’ve had some rains to help compact it. It will need manual compaction Before the pavers go down. pool hit a small (non-pool caused) hiccup so we had a delay. Now things are rolling again. So, got a shipment of coping...

    Pool sharing in the time of Coronavirus

    I wouldn’t do that..just enjoy your pool. I’m told UV light is brutal on the virus (About 3hrs). But don’t open yourself to liability. People are stupid and will inevitably do stupid things. Gotta think about more than covid though...drownings, etc should be a concern if your aren’t hanging...

    Lol. Dang, you’ve been itching for that haven’t you? I actually bought another TF-100 kit prior to starting so I could see what I’m going up against water wise. Luckily it’s better than West Texas. Oh roof shot

    Some things happened today. They were at least moderately busy. 70yds of concrete per the PB. Financial advisor is not pleased with me. But you only live once.

    In other news, I just saw 2-3 dolphins from my back porch. They tore up some trout I’m betting.

    I haven’t measured it since the rebar went in. I did measure some aspect when they were digging. It satisfies. I did ask for the owner to come over and check out the retaining wall they have setup with rebar. I don’t believe it’s going to be as tall as we had suggested. So want to make sure...
