Some led striping under the hand rail would look awsome!
Lol, I haven’t even begun to think about lighting, but those are both great ideas. I think the lightning may need to wait for a little while though because I’m gonna need a little break after the deck is finishedI was also thinking some recessed low voltage lighting in the stairs and those horizontal boards would look great.
Yes, you deserve a much needed break after all that (great) work! Do you plan on staining it or leaving it in it's "natural" state?Lol, I haven’t even begun to think about lighting, but those are both great ideas.

Haha, thanks. I think I’ll sleep for the next few days. Maybe for the next weekYes, you deserve a much needed break after all that (great) work! Do you plan on staining it or leaving it in it's "natural" state?
Its usually best to wait about a year for it to dry out first so it will accept the sealer/stain for deeper penetration. The trick to know when is to sprinkle water on it occasionally after a while. Once it stops beading up into drops and starts to soak into the wood, it is ready to accept the finish coat. In the same fashion, when the water stops beading up again after a season or two, it’s time to reseal it.don’t think I’ll stain it. I might put a sealant on it, but probably nothing more than that
It’s a Pentair Warrior SE. I got it from marina pool spa and patio, which seems to be the place to get them from.What model cleaner is that? I'm sort of already regretting getting the Intex auto cleaner. It's better than not having a cleaner, but not amazing. And it wraps itself around the Intex ladder, and becomes worthless.
I got a Confer 7200 on order which already has a block so kids can't swim behind the ladder, but I'm not sure when it will ship. The PVC is clever though, I may need to do that if that takes a long time.The intex cleaner worked great in my small pool, but I think this one is too big for it. Yours is pretty big too, so I’m not sure how it will work out for you.
Well, after having a real skimmer installed for a few days, I now take this statement back. The real skimmer is installed in nearly the same place that my intex over the wall skimmer was installed, but it is so much more effective at skimming than the Intex one was. I was having a lot of problems with flower petals falling into the pool, to the point where I was seriously considering getting a solar breeze to help remove them, but the new skimmer is doing so much better than the Intex one was that I don’t think it will be necessary. It’s not getting 100% of the petals, but it’s probably getting 80 or 90% and the intex skimmer was more like 40 or 50%. I kind of figured that a skimmer was a skimmer, but apparently that’s not the case.I was reasonably happy with my intex over the wall skimmer.
