Yes, we are required to fence it in. That's going to be part of the process. We already picked a fence and signed that contract too. Going with black aluminum like the one my neighbor has.Nice backyard and I love your choice of colors and tile. Will you be required to fence it in since you don't seem to have a back yard fence?
We had our system capped at the edge of the backyard zones when the dig started. This allowed us to still use the front yard system while we are building in the back yard. Also, they excavated all of the existing pipes (and one of those plastic things with wires) during the dig. We didn't have to dig up anything. Have you asked your sprinkler guy what he recommends you do?So, here's a brief update on the process. I received a call from the pool builder this morning (Blue Haven Pools). He told me that the permits will be ready to get picked up today or tomorrow. They will be putting me on the schedule to start digging as early as next week, but he wasn't able to give me a date yet.
In the meantime, I have been working to dig up my sprinkler heads and pipes that run through the center of my backyard. Should've considered the 7 P's when they designed the sprinkler system because it is hot out there trying to dig it up. Also, I have a circular plastic cover right in the middle with some wires connected in it. I don't know how to handle the piece of it yet. I'm good with digging up the PVC and flex pipe, but not sure how they routed the electric piece of it. So, any help on the would be appreciated. I'm trying to minimize how much work my sprinkler guy will have to do when I call him out after the pool is in place to re-route the one zone around the pool.
Ha! I think I agree with you. I'd put in a quick call and see if he can give you any advice without having to come out until it's time to reinstall.No, I haven't asked my sprinkler guy yet what I should do. I've shut off that zone and the grass is starting to die. Unfortunately, I have trees planted around the outside of my backyard that I need to keep watering. I was trying to get it all dug up so that I only had to call him back to reinstall the one zone. There's only 4 heads in the zone and the thing with the wires. Although, it's been so hot out there, I'm tempted to just leave it and let them dig it up - almost not worth it for $30 in plastic pvc and a few heads.
Yes, as of now, I will be able to be there. I work from home most days when not traveling for work.SWEET! Will you be able to be there when they do it? This is one of the times you need to be just in case there are tweaks that need to be done. Best that YOU make the decisions instead of the PB.
