So our pool equipment will be on the side of our house with our pool built directly in our backyard. Our pb will pour a concrete pad for the equipment but I was thinking when we pour the concrete for the decking have them continue pourOmg some on the side of the house near the pool equipment so I can store pool floats and what not over there as well. Concrete decking will go right up to our house so it would just wrap onto the side of the house. But looking at pics of people’s pool equipment, it seems like it’s usually just grass or gravel around their equipment. I know it would be easier to get to pipes if there was a leak but wouldn’t you have to break concrete anyways since there will be pipes under the concrete decking part. as well? Our dig starts on Monday and just want to think this through. Oh and one of our fence gates will be right there so thought we should concrete it but Im starting to wonder if there is a good reason people don’t. Thanks!
