    PebbleTec Crack in Spa

    So, my pool guy, who has proven to be trustworthy, gave me 2 options. He has a pool plaster guy, that he has used many times, could come out and repair for around $200-400 probably. This guy is the guy pool builders use, so this is just side cash I’m thinking, but apparently his work is...

    PebbleTec Crack in Spa

    I wish the warranty was still in the picture but I believe they are non transferrable. I'll see about getting a quote. I'm just assuming it will be $500-$1000, because everything is super expensive these days. Epoxy is probably less than $50.

    PebbleTec Crack in Spa

    Thanks for your responses Brian and Kim. I am a first time pool owner but very handy with repairs, as I am a woodworker for a living. It doesn't bother me from a visual standpoint, I just keep noticing it and it seems to be getting slowly bigger. Naturally, I feel as if it is a problem that...

    PebbleTec Crack in Spa

    Cosmetically, I see your point, it will look better without a patch/filler but I feel like I would be asking for a larger patch down the road if I don't address this now. I think Kim's patch, although it seems much bigger, isn't that bad. It's smiling back at me!

    PebbleTec Crack in Spa

    I haven't given it the hollow test, I'm assuming it's like trying to find a stud with your knuckles? I don't really care about appearance too much, I just don't want this crack getting bigger and more unsightly. It has grown a little bit in one years time. Its only after the beer googles come...

    PebbleTec Crack in Spa

    Hello All, We bought our house last year and this particular crack was harder to see then. Doesn't seem to be leaking, I haven't noticed any difference in the water level. It's located in the spa, where the seating contours down. The pool was built in 2004 and I believe the Pebble Tec...

    ~ Rusted Galvanized Gas Pipe Replacement ~

    I went to the supply house and came home with a riser with a compression fitting on the end. See below. I am actually going to re-work the 3/4 pipe leading to the heater first so I don't end up needing a odd ball size pipe when I connect to the riser. That way my slop room is taken up in the PE...

    ~ Rusted Galvanized Gas Pipe Replacement ~

    Ok my friends, I have exposed the 1 1/2 I.D. yellow Performance Pipe. I think this is Underground Gas Polyethylene Piping? It's solid like PVC, not flex pipe. Anyway, I'm not sure how they got the PE pipe to connect with the galvanized riser or if it matters because I think the plumbing...

    ~ Rusted Galvanized Gas Pipe Replacement ~

    It's a pretty far run to replace the line, probably about ~85' total, there is another 25' not pictured. I'm not gone tear up the pavers and grass if I don't have to. The integrity of the buried line should be fine. Gas company here in SoCal will not touch anything coming off their meter that...

    ~ Rusted Galvanized Gas Pipe Replacement ~

    Thanks everyone for your advice. I went to my local supply house and they have riser pipes with a compression fitting on the end. So, I will dig back a little further and hopefully find the connection point. I'm guessing it connects to a poly line since it is wrapped with a tracer wire. Once I...

    I thought any independent line coming off the meter was my responsibility? I would think the pool gas line falls in that category no?

    ~ Rusted Galvanized Gas Pipe Replacement ~

    Hello All, The natural gas line, for the heater, coming up from the ground has rusted out and is leaking gas. I have shut off the T line that feeds this leg and exposed the pipe only to find there is no threaded 90 elbow for me to easily replace this short distance. I'm not sure how things are...
