Pool: heater done

The old skimmer box with the flexible hose was replaced by hard pipe which was buried underground. Not only does it look much better, but the flex hose tends to leak after a few years from the pool



The pool heater outlet was rebuilt It gets very hot in this area, so I had to be sure the wood wouldn’t catch on fire.


The skimmer is done. A steel beam was placed above and below the box to keep the sides properly in place.


I also added a steel stiffener on the outer wall to ensure the 12’ long piece of wood would be stable and not bend or warp forever.
