    Question What Does Your Pool Equipment Pad Look Like?

    Would love to see your pool equipment pad. Is it enclosed? How big is it?

    Mine is a 4'x4' concrete pad that is about 6" thick. My builder put it all together. I would love to enclose it or at least block the side facing the street...seems easy for someone to steal the equipment being that it is about 100' from the house. The builder and his crew have a few things to tidy up such as stabilizing the post with the aqua logic panel...not sure how they missed that.

    Here is mine. I like how yours has a poured base. Mine has 3 pre-fabbed pieces that don't look as sturdy.

    Mine looks very much like yours with a smaller poured base with a 4x4 to support breaker box and timer to the left of the base. Only difference here is that mine was put slightly inside the roofline of a pole barn. Far from house. On different meter than the house. But no worries about theft out here in the sticks.

    Thanks for sharing. I hope more folks post their pics...just curious what other pads look like. Especially those not attached to the house/home.

    Mine is still a work in progress. Still need to get the gas line hooked up (it's coiled behind the heater as you can see in the pictures), and my acid injection tank needs to be bolted down and plumbed in, but you can get the general idea.

    Uh, honey I have to check the pump basket real quick... drinks Heineken... Uh I have to go adjust the tube nut sprocket... drinks another Heineken... I see your hidden equipment plan.

    Love that stacked stone wall, looks very nice and I'll bet it cuts equipment noise too.

    Dang, you caught me red handed capt! Thanks for the nice comments on the wall. It does help with the noise. It was a last second add with my PB. I figured they would do a better job that I could. They charged me $1250 for it.

    4x8ft shed. It used to house all the pool pump supplies etc, but I'm building a barn and will enclose the equipment in there.
