    Looking for photos of huge grottos w/spa and seating areas

    We want a huge grotto that is large enough to completely cover an 11x7 spa and have a nice large seating area and fire pit also inside the grotto. I'm sure some of you have seen some amazing pools and can point me in the right direction.

    Heater Recommendation But Retain Automation through Jandy

    Saving a ton of money purchasing online seems worth it for a Raypak since they hardly ever break and if they do, it's easier and cheaper to fix. Makes the warranty pretty much useless.

    Leak from light pipe

    Actually it probably just popped loose and doesn't need any extra conduit. Probably can just glue it and step in it until it dries.

    Jet valves

    Looking at it again, I think somebody cranked the handle hard enough to jump the pin over the stopping block. So now it's on the wrong side. The pins should still be in 180 holes, but pull the pins out of the holes, and set the valve so the handle is in line with the stopping block and push the...

    Jet valves

    Yes, the pins are stopping points to keep from shutting it completely. He could take the pins out and spin it completely around.

    Leak from light pipe

    You could definitely seal it there since its easy to get to, but it won't be fun if you ever have to change the light.

    What in tarnation is this?

    If you are comfortable with electrical work, you can also swap the wires from the pool light relay and spa light relay, then test the lights again. If the pool lights start working and the spa lights stop, then you know it's the relay. This is easy and can be done with a screwdriver, no...

    What in tarnation is this?

    Its unlikely the electrician messed anything up, they usually know what they are doing. Also you stated the soa light works but both pool lights stopped at the same time. You also mentioned both pool lights on the same relay as each other but on a separate relay fron the spa light. The spa light...

    Add a GFCI receptacle powered by pool controller?

    If you connect a second gfci to a line that already has a gfci then the gfci will pop as soon as power is applied. It will pop even if you try to share the same neutral. If that circuit already has gfci then you could just connect the pump and it would be protected. If you want to add a whole...

    Help! New plaster job - trowel lines and footprints - what to do???

    You need to call another contractor and see what the say. Laying plaster is an art and no two plaster jobs are alike. You will always have some ripples and waves in the plaster and other imperfections. Handprints and footprints are not acceptable though. I had quite a few footprints in my dark...

    New plaster application problem? I would like your opinion..

    I suspect you are correct, toweling and acid wash. I love the look though, to me it gives it a more natural stoney type of look. I also have a lot of crazing that most people wouldn't like, but I purposely let my plaster dust settle in my crazing to make it stand out more. To me it just another...

    Water features affecting water temperature

    Yes, each deck jet has it's own line and separate valve. I eventually plan to install electric valves on each one so I can control them wirelessly and individually and set them to play to music. and yes, I don't know if dumping a few gallons of hot water would make a difference but if it's...

    Water features affecting water temperature

    Thank you, our kids are 2 and 3 and we plan to be here long enough to justify it. As far very thin piping at the surface, yes, I have 20 individual 3/4" pipes that are surrounded in concrete for the sidewalk. The water gets extremely hot just sitting there not moving and when I turn it on, the...

    New plaster application problem? I would like your opinion..

    Yes, mine is the same. It's the beauty of the quartz plaster, it creates a washed out denim look and it will change over time. I can't find a picture on my phone that shows mine, but it looks just like yours and my old pool was the same color and had the same river-like patterns. My neighbor has...

    Add a jva to alternate from main drain to skimmers

    I happened to be working on my panel so I figured I would post some pics for reference. As you can see I have only installed my intake and return. It's sounds like you have used the one for solar but it looks like you should be able to hook up one more.

    Add a jva to alternate from main drain to skimmers

    Thank you for posting this. I have the Jandy Aqualink RS8 system I was was thinking of doing the exact same thing. I have 4 jva's but only 2 are installed. I'd like to have one on the skimmer/main drain like you want to do, and another setup between two water features. Hopefully somebody here...

    Water features affecting water temperature

    I was told that running water features will lower the water temperature of the pool because the moving water causes more evaporation which naturally cools the water. I was wondering if this is actually true and how much it would affect the temps. I have an insane amount of plumbing(20 deck jets...
