    the guy that used to do my tile was not very anal with his grout work, which left me with 2 leaks at the skimmers. i started using red guard on all my work even these.

    Jim, that first picture is one helluva waterfall. Probably had a price tag to match. Did you do the faux stonework?

    tadpole,

    i didn't have control of the waterfalls, if i had the control the falls would have an access door and the pumps would have been installed inside the structure of the falls instead of being in the main pool house.

    inside the pool house at this time are (5) 1hp pumps, the filter, salt cell and the controller along with a solar add-on. it's tight as tight can be inside.

    the job turned out good, but only after repairing damage other contractors did, in fact i had (2) pools that took over a year to build and both had damage due to others.

    we'll backfill it ourselves; is just another way of saying,
    hey; the return lines are history
