I used rockwool around my air conditioner in the attic, helped A LOT... I think spray foam is a little better but that would be a pain...

Trust me the lawn was not a battle i wanted to fight. We have a well, so even with crabgrass it never looked as bad as some other lawns with water restrictions. The problem is it stays a very dull green in the summer and dies an ugly death in the winter. The wife wants a beautiful lawn next year so we're giving it a go.

I spent quite a bit of time this weekend just thinking through how to enclose the back while keeping everything accessible. I went with a hinged enclosure i think will work.

The power meter i bought on amazon installed easily and might be the best 12 bucks I've spent so far. If this thing ends up a power hungry beast at least ill know pretty quick.

Installed the chlorine generator probe by feeding the cable through the overflow pipe.

Shout out to A.O. on the Perfect Pour recommendation! The bottle makes acid additions a snap and since im adding a few times a day it really helps.

Still waiting on my cover. What a bummer because its starting to get cold in the mornings and a nice soak to start the day will be great! I also started leveling a 28 ft diameter site for a future AGP kit and was pretty beat up Saturday night from the digging. Its getting close though. Probably one more round of photos after i get the cover and this thread will be a wrap. I wont start a dedicated thread on the above-ground because there's already so much great content on that. Looking forward to it though. I want to get the ground prepped now so it will be nice and settled by spring.
