Plumbing’s Up! July 20, 2006

Posted by daveintexas in Pool Blogging.

Anybody remember that old game Mousetrap



This looks complicated.

I’m writin checks like George Steinbrenner.

The amounts could be similar.

Things are finally moving along! All that plumbing, and a sewage pipe, too! I’m curious, though. Why so many pipes? Do you have hot running water, cold running water, lukewarm running water, just-a-little-cool running water, etc?

2. Dave in Texas - July 20, 2006

I said I wanted extra pipes.

I think half that stuff is for the spa, heated water delivery, those spray jets that knock your swimmin trunks off if you’re not careful.

The rest is drains, skimmers, circulation and the “fountain”.

Are you going to have a grotto a la Playboy Mansion?

I have no idea what I’m looking at here. Usually when someone talks to me about a big, deep hole and plumbing, they’re talking about something else though.

I sure hope they leave a manual or something. There are like, 10 valves on that thing.

Huh. So that’s what the intertubes look like before they bury them.

I’m here to threadjack. Pamela David’s talking in Spanish. Thought you should know. I could barely make out something about the publicity from Dave in Texas’ blog and the effect it has had on her life. Slightly NSFW toward the end.

8. Dave in Texas - July 21, 2006

Oh, I don’t think you could consider any Pamela David topic a threadjack at this place.

I put those posts up a few months ago, and they STILL get consistently more views than anything else.

Damn Dave, what’s really going on there?

It looks like a Texas size meth lab!

That looks exactly like the pump I used to have. Is that a sand filter or something else (like diatomaceous earth)?

I don’t see a Polaris pump. How are you cleaning the bottom and sides?

My suggestion is that you think twice before you settle for a creepy crawly or anything similar that works off skimmer suction. I never met anyone who thought they work well. Also, the tail-whip on a Polaris does a good job of preventing algae formation. You still have time to tell them you’re willing to pay for a Polaris system. You’re going to enjoy that pool a heck of a lot more if you keep cleaning and water maintenance chores to a minimum. Vacuuming the pool by hand is a pain in the ass.

Once it’s in, feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions. It seems intimidating at first, but pool maintenance is actually pretty simple if you keep up with it.

(It gets complicated when you come home from vacation to find a pool full of lime green alkaline water and a totally clogged filter.)

What, what? I’m sorry, I don’t speak Spanish.

It’s a lot worse to come home to an empty pool with a crowd of Skater Dudes shredding the half pipe.

13. Dave in Texas - July 27, 2006

All the skater dudes in my part of town know I’m heavily armed and irritable.

And after this it’s compartmentalized, being familiar with each of our modern-day louis vuitton australia 2012 requires.
