    Retrofit Sleeves for Volleyball Net

    Thank you. Thus far i haven't had anyone willing to do it due to it being a small job. I may just go with the handyman (thank you for the suggestion as i didn't think about that).

    Retrofit Sleeves for Volleyball Net

    Any idea of the ease of drilling holes for volleyball pole inserts? I have washed/exposed aggregate decking. The deck is about 3 years old. Is this a DIY project or better left to the pros?

    New deck heaving

    Heaved portion of deck being torn up now. Never settled back down. Deck guy says he is going to compact the fill as best he can and that might keep it from heaving again. Also might tie it into my existing concrete patio. Thoughts/suggestions on other things to do prior to pour? Saturate...

    Greenish tint

    My water was perfect but I noticed my cartridge filter pressure was high so I needed to clean the filters. They were filthy. So bad I was surprised my water was clear. I cleaned them and one day later my water had a dusty look and green tint. Several days later still Greenish. I keep my...

    New deck heaving

    More heave with wet and cold weather. PB, concrete contractor, sales guy, all say nothing to be done and is to be expected. Frustrating but my only hope is that it settles over the summer.

    North Texas landscaping ideas needed

    We almost talked ourselves out of a tropical/palm theme around our new pool but a long wknd in Cancun just spoiled that. I now know we will be tropical in McKinney. THanks for the info on Dallas Palms. I am going to check them out.

    New deck heaving

    All dirt was already removed. i only saw sand and then rebar. Not sure what they did prior to that. Deck guy came out. Claims the heave is normal. Agrees that the mastic needs to be fixed or it will just get worse as water/moisture continues to go down under the concrete. Claims the...

    New deck heaving

    Thanks everyone. The PB and deck guys are coming back out. I also can now see a very long (but small) crack in the aggregate. There is obviously a problem. We have had some abnormally cold temps here. My poor pool equip is working OT.
