We must have been writing at the same time........not sure what caused the decking problem. Ask your PB if the sub out that work and if he still does business with that company.

Everything looks good on the stakes. I am going to bury those downspouts before next Wednesday and use the pop up. I will put the pop up right on the other side of my fence where I keep the soil bare with roundup. It will drain down the slope to the road from there. I thought about running it all the way to the road but there are tons of underground utilities that I would have to deal with in that area. I’m still pondering taking next Tuesday off and renting a sod cutter to save some grass to use after install. I assume I should go ahead and order the test kits and pool robot as well. 🤷🏻‍♂️

They don't sub it.....they do it on their own. Mine had a color added and it was a little streaky and blotchy until it dried for a few days. After a few days it was a very uniform shade. That could have been the case there also, or maybe not.

Trying to dig and install my downspout drainage pipes this weekend. I took Tuesday off and rented a sod cutter to remove grass before pool build starts Wednesday 😅8233FAD0-FBC6-4073-B94B-E70D6D5A21D3.jpeg

Still scheduled for dig starting on Wednesday. We got a big downpour this morning as I was leaving to go deer hunting and my pop up valve was working perfectly, thank goodness! My hunting blind was AWOL though, it didn’t withstand the 40 mph wind gusts from overnight. 0F811039-FB64-4F3E-9C1E-E18D2ADBDBF0.jpeg

Got a surprise call that the PB was on the way this morning to start my install ... 2 days early. I can’t use my sod cutter idea, but that’s ok ... it saves me a ton of work! I have 200 lbs of grass seed and unlimited straw so I can get the grass growing quickly when they are done. Exciting, I’m going to be watching my cameras all day long! 381F20E6-B67C-4807-8846-2279B31B69C8.png
My PB works fast. Here is a pic that another customer posted ... 86055C44-E3C7-4560-93A9-2882F6B2C629.jpeg

We rented a sod cutter and removed our grass. Our son was just getting ready to buy some so we took it to his house. Saved a bunch of money for both of us 🤑.
Enjoy watching your dig!

Let the dirt/mud begin! Hurry and order your test kit!!! You will have water fast!!!!
The TF-100 is the one suggested ... do I need any of the optional things like: the speedstir, salt test, or test strips? Thanks!

I love, love, love my speed stir! While you do not have to have it it sure makes life easier!!! and it is fun to use!
Will you have a SWG? If so then you want the salt test strips.
