The great 2018 pool reno starts in about a month. Have the Nest Outdoor cam all set up to catch the finer details of the overhaul.

Now that we have signed the contract, can’t wait to get the work started!

Re: Pool Reno....

Complete overhaul that includes:

- taking out all all of the concrete decking and installing new
- new integrated poured coping and tiles
- sandblasting and new plaster
- removal of existing pool light and niche
- installation of 4 new pool lights
- replacement of existing skimmer
- addition of second skimmer
- all new return lines
- new diving board base (board was replaced a couple years ago)
- new gunite hot tub with bells & whistles
- new pool shed
- new saltwater system
- new 2 HP VS pump and 2.5 HP booster pump
- new landscaping lights (integrated with the pool and spa lights)

Looking forward to the work starting. Until then, it’s going up to 33 C (91 F) with humidity hitting 41 C (106 F) with the sun shining. We are going to be enjoying the pool in its current state!!

...and it begins. Even though the work isn't starting until next Tuesday, the electrical and gas have been disconnected today so that the pool shed deconstruction can begin. Any guesses on how long it takes for the pool to go green??

Day #2 - more cutting, removal and pool draining has started..... I am using the Nest camera for the video and have no idea the time frame for the videos (I just selected the time period and said make it one minute long - modern technology!).

Getting there piece by piece! Man that is a lot of leg/back work! I would be finding me some kind of trailer to hook to something to make less trips!

They did nice work cutting without a dust storm. So many guys cut concrete without wetting it down, resulting in a dust cloud. I’m sure your neighbor appreciated it.

Well I didn't think that any work would be done today as the remnants of tropical storm Gordon was dumping a ton of rain on Southern Ontario. Well I was wrong! The PB has surprised me with a very productive day with all of the concrete from the deck being removed. There is nothing but sunshine in the forecast for the rest of the week so we will see how things progress in terms of tackling the pool and spa. Here is today's video of the guys slugging it out in the rain...
