LOL everyone. Thanks for the feedback and kind words. Sorry for being offline for a while...vacation time. Not quite sure why the prior owners wanted to sell but I will not lie and say that the pool was the main feature of why we purchased the house. I will take a pic of the pool equipment pad, the backside of pool features, and yes of the house in a shot for you photoshop theorists lol. In return I am hoping to get some good ideas from everyone on how to cover up/fence off the pool pad equipment. It is in the direct sun and I think if I build a arbor or some type of partial shade around/over it then it would help protect it.
