Amazing list! Thank you. There are a few things here I am interested in above, but don't see or read contradicting info on. Anyone agree, disagree or have thoughts on the below?
- Flex vs Rigid PVC - It seems that in the Northern part of the US (or places with colder climates) flex is preferred for certain runs. I am not sure this is true or not.
- Equipment Pads - Some PBs use condenser-like prefabricated pads. These I believe are made of fiberglass, not concrete. Some posts in the forums suggest this is acceptable and makes it easier in case of leaks with plumbing running under the pad. I am not fond of the idea, but haven't seen it in practice. I am partial as I grew up with a concrete equipment pad with no issues that I recall. Again, I am not sure what is best, but worth noting to add to the above list.
- Equipment Pads - Some here have suggested putting a roof or some sort of UV protecting cover over the equipment pad to protect equipment and pipes. I am not sure if this is overkill.
- Gunite - The truck used for gunite and even other items (think skid loader) can damage the driveway. Ask if they will use a pumper truck to allow truck to be parked in the street and run the gunite gun to the work site without having to put the truck on your property.
