Spa


  • built a spa vault for a LA Spas manufactured spa "maui".
  • it will sit 50/50 in/out of ground
  • 2ft access in rear
  • pad is a tad over 4" thick with a few pieces of #3 rebar
  • block wall has #3 in pad every ~36" and every core has #3 rebar on angle and every core filled with concrete
  • 50ft #6 copper spiral under pad for bonding (which is not required for me, but did anyways)
  • there's a big loop of 2" pvc below pad in ground as a cooling system (yes, it gets too hot here in summer, need a way to cool the water some)
  • 3/4 horse sump pump
  • 240v 50A comes into disco and then loops into ch50spa panel all gfi

a lot of work.

Spa


less than 24hrs old, keeping wet for a slow dry. Cemex didnt add Helix and pigment properly to truck, had a few small clumps come down the shute, other than that things seem to finish real nice with Helix in the mix.
