    Do you Bond if there is no decking...

    The pool will be bonded, and there should be a bond beam. All equipment will also be bonded. They haven't started the dig yet, still getting permits. - - - Updated - - - Thank you, not sure Prince Georges county in MD, and they tend to go with the latest and greatest normally. I have been...

    Do you Bond if there is no decking...

    I have another thread with a similar inquiry. I am planning on doing the decking myself with my father in law who is a contractor. Only 2 sides of the pool will have decking, and the other 2 will be grass after the coping. I have been getting informed about bonding and bonding the deck...

    DIY paver deck , grass, and bonding

    That was an option as well, just having them do the 3ft under the pavers, but that still leaves the sides that will have grass. I looked at documentation and it doesn't look complicated, laying down a wire or a mesh and connecting it to the rebar the PB will expose. I don't see how I can get...

    Whole yard fence and opening in...

    Thanks, I am going to ask. If I’m forced to go outward with the larger gate I will have to raise it so that it clears the hill when opening. I might omit the smaller gate on the other side of the house.

    DIY paver deck , grass, and bonding

    My father in law and myself will do the pool deck after the PB is done with the shell. I have to look at the contract and talk to the PB to ascertain what they will bond. Let’s assume they will bond everything but deck, even the initial ring immediately around the pool. 2 sides of my pool...

    Whole yard fence and opening in...

    This is from section 3109 of the international building code. Makes it seem that if I stick to just the double gate I can have it open any direction as long as I have an auto latch. Also I have a sliding door in the basement which would lead to the pool. My house does have an alarm and I...

    Whole yard fence and opening in...

    I did my research, and my county has 6ft height, auto closing, and opening out. My fence will have a pedestrian door and a wider one for whenever its needed. Both would need to open in or they wouldn't be able to open at all without surface grading. Another thing to add is that the 4ft...

    Whole yard fence and opening in...

    I will be getting a pool built over the winter and am in the process of building our rear yard fence. It's a 6ft high wooden privacy fence which meets the county requirement for safety but my yard slopes down from the front of the house and for the gates to open they must open in. Anybody have...

    New Pool, add SWC to build or DIY

    thank you for all the information, like Dirk said that is what the PB sales guy said with the Jandy AquaPure that it was set it and forget it but clearly one still has to make adjustments. I think the unit might just give more information than their TruClear

    PB uses Jandy and Anchor covers... like A&S

    I have NG at the house and even a line out the back but it's probably too small for a heater. Before adding any heat I might call a gas fitter to see what he or she thinks and how much it would be to run a line, if more service was needed etc. I don't think I am going with A&S but this other...

    PB uses Jandy and Anchor covers... like A&S

    If I go with this PB and the Jandy equipment would their small automation unit suffice. It can handle the variable pump and the salt water chlorinator, but thats all. Its called IQPUMP01 - https://www.jandy.com/en/products/pumps/variable-speed/iqpump01 The 2.2hp ePump -...

    New Pool, add SWC to build or DIY

    I am fairly certain specificity is used to measure salt in water, I have a reef aquarium and I believe that is the term. I might be wrong, but the question was more like set the amount of chlorine you want in the water and the SWC does the rest, no need to adjust.

    Thank you for all the info. Is the Hayward T15 comparable to aquarite in features, where it has self cleaning and you set a target salt specificity?

    PB uses Jandy and Anchor covers... like A&S

    They stated the running on high to move the proper amount of water. I’m undecided on the SWC because some units seem to be able to run themselves, yet the Jandy variable pump controller can also control the SWC. Anybody have any info on the anchor covers? They have 2 solid versions, with...

    PB uses Jandy and Anchor covers... like A&S

    So I have been talking to a couple PB's but the one who stands out thus far uses Jandy equipment and Anchor pool covers. I've done my research and even on the Anchor site I can't tell which of the solid pool covers is supposed to be better. One has straps, the other uses springs. You can get...

    LED Nicheless lights incorrect colors

    Are the new versions out. They are way to expensive to be replaced so often. My PB wants $1000 for each on a new build

    New Pool, add SWC to build or DIY

    So is there any reason why I shouldn't just do this myself when the pool is 1 month old and the surface has cured? Would I simply use bleach / or chlorine sticks before that? Is the process of going from a normal chlorinated to saltwater complex or simply add the chlorinator when pool...

    New Pool, add SWC to build or DIY

    Thanks for the information, this is for a new build. Still ironing out details but the pool does not exist. Even the size is preliminary and since its free form with a bend it's going to be less than those 15000 gallons, more than likely 12000. I am looking at 40000 gallon cells, the Jandy...

    New Pool, add SWC to build or DIY

    I have done my research, searched here and it seems adding a SWC is something that a DIY inclined person can do. I am thus inclined, willing to learn, and am patient so I am not scared of doing it but I guess the question is, is it worth it. The PB wants what I believe to be a huge markup on...
