I know there is a version of this channel drain with a "pebble top" and another for "plaster top"...I think it is a hard top that is molded to resemble pebble.I love that you are putting in the channel drain! Those look so nice! Is it the one you can fill in the top with the plaster?
They are moving fast! SWEET!
With a variable speed pump running at a higher RPM, the sound is not a distraction. The equipment fence cuts a majority of the noise towards the spa. We almost never use the blower. In fact, it may be 20 years since we last used it, so I cannot offer an opinion on it. (FYI... I had the equipment fence built so I can remove about a six foot width section of it near the tall fence. It is not possible to see where this section is from the front. This removeable portion gives access to the heater when it needs to be replaced. Otherwise, it would take some creative work moving the heater.)My build is in progress and my spa is just about as close to the equipment as yours. I was going to build a fence around it too, how bad is the noise?
