    Our First Pool

    They picked up one more truckload of earth which means they made a mess again. I believe this is it for excavation. This phase cant end soon enough! Tomorrow steel gets delivered. Before and after my cleanup efforts.

    Kim i may have fixed it. With some help from youtube I pulled it all apart, switched the control cable and checked all the moving parts. I get the “out of the pool” error now. I may stick it in the tub and try it out. Looks promising!!

    A friend just gave me a POLARIS P965IQ . It has a trouble code though Brand new controller and motor and brand new cable (I have to install) . I will hunt around online to see what info I can find to get it working. Cosmetically in very good shape. Worth a shot

    Kim the PB brought over the guy who does the steel work to check measurements while excavation was ongoing. You can see glimpses of them in the time lapse.

    Day 2 complete! Another few hours cleaning up after they left. Digging is complete but they need to haul away at least one more truckload (which means more mess in the front and side). Will post another time lapse as soon as I get myself cleaned up.

    Fire and Water Bowls

    I too am looking for 2 Fire Bowls with auto ignition and have found them to be quite costly. Almost to the point of them not being feasible. Lily pls let me know if you find anything worthwhile and I will do the same.

    Lets see if that link works Changed to YouTube - looks like it plays now If you look closely, you can see where the operator cuts a coax cable that was actually 1ft outside of the utility easement. Cable company showed up and fixed it right away (you can see that too).

    KIM ITS HORRIBLE!!!! I spent the last few hours pressure washing to clean up. The whole side of the house, the driveway, the sidewalk, the street. IT JUST WENT ON FOREVER! and we do it again tomorrow. The ground here is extremely dense!!

    I think the heat pump is what puts me over the limit @50amps. I will also have one circuit for the gazebo in the future. The crew is still working and only about half way done. Some hard rock just under the surface.

    Roy Went to the architect today to make final changes and it looks like my existing sub panel at 80amps may not pass with a third pump. I already have 2 pumps a sprinkler pump heat pump and all the lights/automation. I need to make this work with that intellifloxf pump! He says he can pull 2...

    Thanks for the diagram Roy! (sorry I typed Rob before by accident) By looking at the plans, it looks like this is how it will be plumbed (the water feature pump has automatic valves behind the manual valves to tweak the feature as you say) I believe the 8ft sheer had 2 inputs but I have to look...

    Roy without a VS pump what controls how much flow runs to the feature when not running them all together? Say for instance we wish to just run bubblers without sheer and deck jets? I thought that was the plus of the VS pump. And that it serves as a spare pump if/when main pump fails.

    Thats what I was figuring, just run high rpm when using the spa which would only be for short periods of time. If he could run the lines for spa bypassing the heater maybe I can have him throw 2 runs to reduce pressure loss and just run the spa floor returns through the heater ( or maybe both...

    Roy isnt the new pentair intellifloxf vs pump powerful enough to run those jets when in spa mode? I had asked for 2 of the same pump (same VS pump for water features) firstly because I could adjust speed depending on what features were running (i was reading through intellicenter manual that I...

    Kim, two filter cartridges? Could get a little large and unsightly on the side of the house? Are inline filters/strainers available?

    Our First Pool

    after reading through other build threads I have questions I will ask the PB. He has planned to use 2 intelliflo vsf pumps (one for circulation and spa jets - the other for water features) but only one of these runs through the filter (and I am guessing heater). Does the water running to the...

    Got our plans yesterday and permit process has begun. Just need to tweak a few things on the plans but looks like we are moving forward. I think we will opt for 2 intelliflo vsf pumps. He was going to install a smaller variable speed pump for circulation and spa and a fixed speed for water...
