Re: Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada

ok, so this helps my lack of understanding on how to hook up the blower air to the hot tub.

Air line from blower is the top line running around the perimeter of the spa?
Hot water line from heater is the bottom line running around the perimeter of the spa?
air is blown into the hot water lines a few inches before the jets?
hartford loop on air line prevents water back feeding?

I'm no plumber, but what you say seems to check out and makes sense with my understanding of how this works.

Can anyone tell me where the salt water chlorine generator cell goes in all of this? I've never seen one before and can't tell if they did it.

SWG should always be the last component on the skid before the piping heads out.

That diagram appears to be mislabeled. From left to right components look more like: pump, filter, heater, check valve, swg.

Here's an update: plumbing, steel, and rough electrical are done. Inspector is supposed to stop by today. (These two photos were pre-electric.)

We passed the first inspection! Now on to gunnite. Here are photos of the electrical (they came back this morning to run conduit for the wet deck led bubbler):

Love the different seating for the spa! Get hot? Move up a level. Cold? move down a level!

Have you been bonding with your pool? aka spraying it down do help it cure.

Oh yeah. Bright and early this morning I was out spraying it down. Then I set up soaker hose around the edges on a timer so it will get some water throughout the day.

Yesterday they started pouring the deck. Because of the extreme heat we've been having, this deck process has gone much slower than I anticipated. They poured half the deck yesterday and started the other half today. Then it will cure for a week before spray texture/color is added. Getting closer though.

Also, I purchased seven umbrella sleeves. Two are being used for volleyball pole holders, four are at various locations for patio furniture, and the last one will be in the wet deck.

Re: Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada

Are your spraying the deck to keep it damp. That helps it cure slower and might help keep it from cracking.

This is kind of it in a nutshell . . .

Slowing the exit of free water (by wetting) allows the mix to cure to a strength more likely to resist internal forces that develop during curing. It also keeps the hydration process in an optimal range, since the water needed for further and continued hydration isn't lost to evaporation.

Now you're an expert too . . . :)

Re: Another O/B in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada

NOW I know WHY we water new concrete! I always knew we should for the "nutshell" reason but now I have the "adult" reason why! THANKS! I am saving this to bring out and make it look like I am a real adult!
