  1. just nice to see a bit of how everyday stuff we take for granted is built. also with so much negative stuff coming from russia, this blog is a good reminder of the small but good things too.

    • No, I am very familiar with pool industry. This pool is built very well, has large filters to clean the water in addition to an Ultraviolet anti-microbial system. I see two items that are of concern however. The first, is the use of cast iron pipe. This is a very poor choice for pool water, pool water has electrolysis which corrodes iron quickly creating leaks. The second item is earth ground wire at pool pumps! Very important to earth ground all pool pump motors.

      • Me too.
        Where you see ductile iron pipes?
        The only one i see is drainage pipes that can be made of ductile iron.
        I see some grounding wires, probably all groundings can’t be seen.

        First picture:
        Air ducts shoud be epoxy coated inside and out.
        Only Zink protection is not enough.
        Reason is, as you know, clorine environment .
