    Louvered patio covers

    The only thing I would add is that the equinox has its own drainage leading to a downspout that you can drain anywhere you like.

    Louvered patio covers

    Yes, we have a louvered system from Equinox. You can open and close them to any degree required. The main reason to install this cover is that it is wind storm certified to withstand winds of 120mph.

    Help with new travertine deck staining. < 3 months install

    I know this has been probably checked, but it appears that the flower boxes on the window sills line up with the stains. I assume they are not leaking and water migrating behind your stills and down the inner wall. ‘I have 3,000 sq. Ft. Of travertine and have seen nothing like this. This stain...

    I’m sure gate guy did a better job. LOL. Now you can work on putting a stucco finish on the inside walls of your perimeter block wall. :devilish: The gate looks great

    Chris, There were a number of articles written on the subject. I have attached the link to a few of them. Efflorescence on the stone side of weir wall was my biggest concern. 8 years and I run the infinity edge everyday with no problems of delamination or efflorescence. Email me if you have...

    Infinity edge... tile, epoxy, and other thoughts

    Don't forget to waterproof both side of the weir wall.

    about waterproofing the concrete shell

    I would add that you should waterproof the weir wall on both sides.

    Travertine Deck

    looks great. I had over 3,000 sq ft installed in 2013 as part of my build and the coloring looks exactly like yours. I'm sure you will be happy with your choice.

    Hi Ben, I was thinking about your thoughts on material for your outdoor kitchen. Granite counter tops for the bar and any other surface that may have the potential to get stained for sure. Since your kitchen is in a neat location, how about ceramic tiles for the interior walls. There are so many...

    I guess I'll take a wait and see attitude. But for me, no friggin way would I consider sinking the equipment and provide drainage. Your pool, your build, just my $.02 cents. I may not fully understand what they are planning to do without drawings showing the plan. Is the filter sunken to?

    Ben, it will be interesting to see what they say. I don't think it's practical at this point to move it. Also, where is your power coming from? Have you had this discussion yet? Does your electrical panel have enough capacity? Are they going to have to add a additional breaker box from your main...

    That “little gear box thing” is in 3 out of your 4 pictures. It’s that black cylinder next to your block wall with the multiple pvc lines running to it :hammer:

    Mine took 11 months to finish the entire project, I'll say 4 months for yours. :laughblue::eek:

    Ben, I stopped by today to check your progress. Looks good. What kind of timing did they give you to complete your build?

    Ben, I just saw you were wondering what I meant with steps in the "catch basin". Depending on your design, the depth of your catch basin (containment and recirculation of water that goes over the weir wall) you may want to go ito it and should have a way out. Also it can be used as a kiddie pool...

    Let me add a couple of comments: I've had 2 pools prior to this and used Robot cleaners. They do a good job but the aesthetics of them was not to my liking. What the pool builder should do is send the design of your pool along with all appropriate dimensions to the manufacturer (in this case...

    Based on the progress of the build your going to have to decide on that “item” pretty quick. All I’ll say about the “item” is that it has been trouble free for the most part except for a couple of gear train replacement‘s covered under warranty. And those were because of debris chewing up the...
