The better upgrade for the pump is the pinned version, so welding to heat seals etc.  I believe Danville made the one for my LB7 which is an OEM AC delco but they drill and pin the impeller to the shaft.

?Hot Wheels Track? ............ have some first butt knowledge of the effectiveness of said implement along with the belt.  :likebutton:
Mom beat me with a hotwheel track. Made me the man I am today. Although someone should have told her that she should strike with the flat side so the rails don?t leave marks.

Looks good Ken.

I pressure washed the house to prep for paint. Laid the last pallet of sod and welded the handle back on the pressure washer cart. Then cranked the hot tub to 103. Now having a nip and about to eat the beef and chicken fajitas I made

As nice as that will be I?m not sure you need the 5thwheel. You could add a bunk house on back and call it good!

First rule is to always be willing to walk away.

Second. I negotiate everything over the phone and get a drive out cost sent and all commitments sent  via fax or email.

And when I walk in it?s a matter of signing on the line and driving off. Usually and out in less than an hour.

Anything looks off when I get there and I walk. Plain and simple.

Ryan??? Who?s Ryan??? Oh CRS.....

Looks good. Thanks for the redundant explanation. 

Yeah on my weekend place I turn the water off before I leave.  Just in case.

My laundry in the full time house is upstairs and has a tile floor with a drain in it.  Never thought about it much but now I?m glad it?s there.

Pool was 88 and spa was 92 since that was where most of the heated water flows

They spent time in both. The pool was just the right depth. 3?9? on the ends and 5? in the middle.

Well this is a special inaugural swim occasion. I ain?t running a heater for the whole pool often if ever again

7:24 am ambient temp 40. Pool temp 78

Roughly 2.3 degrees an hour increase. 

Roughly 4 gallons an hour to run the heater.

At current cost of propane here that?s just under $10 an hour for the heater to run.

I gues $100 to heat the pool once ain?t the end of the world but it?s pretty silly IMO

Of course it?s been cheaper if it was 60 outside and no 40 :eek

Kids are begging for the inaugural  swim and we just got a cold snap. 39 tonight. So I fired up the 400,000BTU heater at 10:45. Pool water was 57 hours later it?s 67.

Tommy I?m paying 135 for common Bermuda per pallet 425 sq ft

Your deal sounds pretty solid.

I get to keep the pallets....they make for a good redneck bonfire.

So here?s the latest taken from standing at the firepit. They finished today and replaced the hardy they broke. I didn?t have them paint it because I?m about to repaint the entire house and casita....as soon as the wife decides on paint.

Drive to Dallas for a couple of meetings yesterday and today. Drove the dually. I like it a lot more on the freeway than around town

Hope to toss a pallet of sod in the bed on the way back this afternoon.

I?m hoping my Titan airless will work when I need it in the next couple of weeks. It?s been in my dads posession for a couple of years. It?s only been used 4-5 times but it?s 10 years old.

They came yesterday and removed all the debris and started up the pool and worked on some finishing details. Stone guy has to come back and mortar in the skimmer kids and raise up an area that?s holding a little water in the porch.

I?m also thinking about adding the automation equipment. I can see now that the wife won?t want to turn valves and flip switches. She?d rather have a remote control





Now I need about 6 more pallets of sod
