The equipment looks good to me. Other should be along to give it an extra look as well.

9-11 return lines??? That is a LOT of returns. Do you have any idea where they will all go?

I LOVE the design! It will be fun to watch them put the waterfall together. It will be interesting to see how the build it with the slide in mind for the future.

You should not need to seal you flagstone and such. It can cause it be to slippery so there is that to think about.

Thanks, I'm not sure about the return lines. I'll have to ask the PB. I think if we do seal it we'll just do it ourselves.

The people we sold our playset to are supposed to come this weekend and get it and then we'll be ready to start building. We had the last PB come out Monday so we should have a quote from him soon. Hopefully we'll get this pool in before summer.
