    OCD Pool Equipment Layout & Chemical Automation Underway

    “Type of work you can’t pay to have done”. Man isn’t that the truth. It almost doesn’t matter what the trade is. Quality is incredibly difficult to find. At some point budget doesn’t even matter, thoughtful people at any price are akin to unicorns. Thinking about covering the crossover...

    Cleaned up the area so I can start punching out the big stuff. Trying to decide if I should label the flows or not. Here is an example. I am thinking smaller arrows closer together and smaller tape would look better. What does everyone think? Label or no?

    Disappointed in how the chemical bypass looks, but I had to cross over elevations and there wasn’t really a better way to do with without doubling the fittings or blocking the panel walk way.

    Thanks! The intent of the gauges is to show the following: Pressure drop through each main body. This will help me understand if something changes in the system and also what the effect on flow is for each of the water paths. This information can be used to better position valves for...

    This is our small pool with full sized equipment. Our original goal was to be able to use the pool year around and be able to change the temperature quickly. The water can be turned over in about 40 min. The unique challenge has been over chlorination on chlorine erosion feeders.

    Piping thought after completing 75%. It takes longer than you think. It is more expensive than I planned. Texas is hot. Gpm increased about 25% with the same pump. More to come once the bypasses are balanced. I had to eliminate some gauges due to pad space limitations. I upsized a few of the...
