Why did you put all those drains around the pool?

Pool has been built since October but we are just getting started with landscaping. I have had several people ask we what are those pipes for or why all the drains. Today I have an answer for them and to think we were swimming 2 days ago. IMG_1160.JPG The little black circles are 2 of the 6 drains that surround the whole pool one that is sticking up a couple of feet will feed to a second line down the other side of the house so when complete there will be 2 paths in case one ever gets blocked or overwhelmed.

I have a submersible pump that I use right on my deck when we get a deluge. Do you have one? It may help....

No deck planed right now going to go with grass like we have seen on a few east coast pools. Have been told we will hate it but going to give it a try figured we can deck it if it does not work out.

Or give artificial turf a try. A friend has it and it is really nice, it has been great for at least 5 years or so.
