All of the masons are backed up a month in Tucson according to the gate guy. So I suspect he who screams the loudest gets the service. I am hoarse now.SIGH..........................Fred man you cannot catch a break
Wow... No way I would be paying on the day of plaster. Still too many things that could be wrong after you fire up the pump and if they are that slow in response when you are holding money I can't imagine how long it will take them to fix something after there all paid up. Not sure how the code reads but they will not be able to install the in floor heads for a while after the plaster so the install truly will not be finished.. By AZ law I am supposed to pay them tomorrow. Debating buying a completion bond instead... Not wild about paying 100% before the inspection passes and the gate is done to be honest....
I personally prefer my cartridge filter. They could have helped you out a bit and slid it away from the house more. You might be bumping against the house to get the lock ring on/off. A rubber mallet works great to reinstall the lock ring. Just keep tapping around the outside while tightening so it sets evenly. Remember the entire unit is emptied when serving the filters so be sure to put a good bed of stone beside the drain.Yeah, but the space is so tight there I really didn't want it out past the AC units. I am used to working in tight spaces. From looking at the pictures the only potentially difficult thing is cartridge filter (which was required otherwise I would have done sand)... But from looking at it, I can always shut it all down and remove the two fittings and remove it to work on it, worst case. At some point I think I might remove all of the stuff from the pad and pour one. Low on the list, though.
Yeah, that should be fun as I am going to have to dig into our driveway to do that.water meter readings!
get them before and after so you know exactly what your pool volume is for balancing later.
