Default How to hide Pool Equipment?

Starting my list for the summer and one thing I can't find to many pictures or ideas even is some way to hide my 5x9 pool equipment pad. If any members have some pictures of their ideas that would be a big help. Was thinking of building a shed around it but it's to close to my other shed. Small fence might work with some arbs in front but I would love to protect it with a roof or something. Any help would be great!

i've seen folks build a fence and then a few inches down put a piece of plywood for a "roof".


but my parent's pump/filter have sat in the open for 21 years with no problems, so i don't see why you have to cover over it unless you just want to. i can see blocking it from sight, but no need to protect from teh elements.

Hi Mayor,

We did this ~ 20 years ago. I really couldn't find great pics, but you'll get the idea.


The first is the equipment from the back while we were replacing the fencing. The second is what you see from the house/pool.

Good to see spring ideas coming up!

I have a kids play area right next to it and want I keep the rug rats out as well as making it look better.

Thanks that helps! I'm tight on space in that area and wanted some out of the box ideas. Looking to get started ASAP so I can enjoy some of the summer this year.
