Water and Siding

We have been putting water in the pool for a little over one week now. The pool holds 3800 gallons but we can only add the amount of water in our soft water reserves. When that level is reached, the system needs to replenish before we can add more water to the pool. The black cables in the picture below are all hydraulic lines for the propulsion, circulation pump and the treadmill.

This week Ben connected the water lines to the pool. You can see the white water pipes going down the side of the pool.

Ben has also begun working on the decking for the front of the pool. We need access to the front of the pool so this section of decking will be removable if repairs are required in that location.

The pool is completely full now and today we began adding chemicals to balance the water.
This is what the decking will look like around the top of the pool. Eventually, the side of the pool will be decorated with river rock and fire glass.
