    Hmm.
    That timer is made for being mounted on a DIN rail inside a box and not on a box door with drilled holes for the wires to get inside.
    Tell me that it is only a temporary solution..?

    Got the fountains installed and moving water







    LED lights work and cycle.

    Pool installers just need to do a pool clean and a few touch ups and they will be on their way. Still have a deck to install and some painting
    JP the 2 fountain have there own pump or they run with the filtration pump.
    Just went back & look at same picture you have 1 pump, don't run the fountains to long as they would as there would be no circulation of water you pool would go green.
    The pool installers should put a new suction point & a pump for the fountains.

    Thanks Ratchaburi. I wondered the same. The way they had them running was half valved for recirc and fountains. I guess I could do that when relaxing by the pool and then close it off to run full recirc

    11/27

    Today is clean up and pool vacuum. I need to label all the plumbing while they are here.

    Took to the air with my Mavic for a few quick pics after lunch.





    I have been moving dirt since 6:30am this morning. The pool installers are finishing up grouting around the pool and picking up their stuff. It will be another few weeks before my Uncle and I can get started on the deck. He is busy in the rice fields driving the tractor. My wife and niece were busy filling up the air pool toys. Guess she will take a dip tonight.

    Thanks RC,

    We purchased the pool from Bellagio Pool and Spa. Bellagio-Thailand.com

    Up to this point I have been quite happy with the product and install. Being completely honest, it hasn't gone without a few "WTF's" But all par for the course here and addressed as they surfaced so no harm no foul as they say .

    As for custom styles and designs, You would have to ask. Ours is a bit custom in that they typically only sell a 1.5m deep and I wanted 2m. It ended up after install at 1.85m but I give that as a mold variance. Asher is the owner.

    First Belly Flop 11/27

    Well wife, niece and I took our first dip in the pool. Was perfect. Had to rig up a few buckets and feet washers as the deck is not in place. Our Lab went nuts but never came in. Our Golden Retriever would have come in without issue but the big inflatable duck my wife had freaked her out and she just barked.

    Monday starts the pebble tech for pool bar area, week after is deck. Then paint.

    Looks great. It fits in there perfect.
    How was the water I'd think a bit cold as you just filled it.
    Those drone pics are great does it come with that camera or is that an add on.

    Mike,
    Thanks. I think the size is just right. Once the composite deck is installed and some pool furniture around it will tie in nice.

    As for the water, It was 79deg (26c) which is perfect. I ordered a floating thermometer today so I will see what it does over time albeit that is more surface temp about 8" down. Again I still think the biggest challenge will be keeping it cool, not warm.

    As for the pic, that was taken with my DJI Mavic Pro Drone. Resolution set at 1080p. The camera is integrated as part of the Drone. I have been waffling on buying the new Mavic Pro 2 as it comes with a really much better camera. They also have the Zoom optioned Pro.

    11/28. Few touch ups

    Pool install is done and the installers have left to their next job. I installed my pool bar fan this morning, did a quick chemistry check on pool and all is good.



    Fan and view as I sat at the bar



    View from Sala area.

    I think after the deck is all installed I am going to move the Sala up to the deck edge at the opposite end from the pool bar. This way no dirt or debris comes up on the deck and makes it into the pool plus if we want to eat dinner by the pool we can. But for now its wait and see.

    Next 2 days are relax days. Monday the pebble tech installers arrive. That will take 3 or 4 days.

    JP, have you considered putting a net over the top?

    My wife sent me these pics from our much neglected pool this morning...



    A duck had turned up overnight!!



    I don't mind the duck, but can see that the gardener is taking it easy in my absence. He's cleaning the pool now!

    And I can see that the fence needs painting...

    No, definitely not. It shouldn't have ducks on it either.

    No net needed Mendip. BTW, The picture is backwards of the duck and rice for it to eat. That duck should on that plate cooked
    I am surprised your dogs didn't chase it, my Lab would have made a meal of it quick and I'd be picking up feathers.

    I always had problems with snakes in the pool and then we got Bruno the pit-bull.

    Having a dog on patrol solves most issues.

    11/30, Next step

    Today the Pebble tech folks showed up to finish the cement surface. Great group of people. They did the stairs to our house. This is badly needed as even with the cement far away from the pool the dust from cement is always flying around.

    Thought I'd put up a few "Before" pics. My wife picked the design layout so we will see how it looks when done. I didn't ask to see.

    They will be drilling drain holes in the cement wall and set the level to drain away from the pool deck area.

    Quick update on the pebble tech surface install. Its a slow process as they have to level the cement for proper run off and let it dry. Then add the design and let it dry as seen in pics below





    Hard to tell but the design is there the inner will be a sand color and the outer will be a black and gray.
