Glitch In The Process
Did I mention that we are also getting a pergola? That was one of the reasons the slab had to be a certain shape and depth. Well, we are still waiting for council approval on the pergola but everything else is going ahead, fence, pool system etc. This morning the gas man came ('Twas on a Friday morning, the gas man came to call...) to commission the spa heater (oh boy oh boy). As I was watching him, I had a chance to look at the set up for the first time in a few days.
Here it is before the spa heater went in.....
And here it is afterwards.
Yup, looking good. Looking reeeeal good.
All this plumbing here at ground level certainly frees up the area beside the pool. Once the pergola is in we will screen off this area and the unsightly pool equipment will be out of sight and out of mind.
Wait a minute.
Once the pergola is in?
HOW IS THE PERGOLA MAN GOING TO GET IN BEHIND ALL THAT EQUIPMENT TO PUT A POLE IN??????????????
"It's not my fault," said the defensive gas man,"I just asked the Pool Guy and he told me to put it here, so I put it here...."
(and charged me $500.00 for the privilege!)
"We can always take it out again when they want to put up the pergola."
(well you better bloody not charge me another $500.00 to re-install it bucko cos we were QUITE clear that there was a pole to go in here!!!!! >:-(.....)
