Deck board recommendations for freshwater dock - Conch Shell
Does anybody have suggestions to replace treated wooden deck boards on a dock over freshwater? I looked into composites, etc. and am thinking PVC is the way to go but am not sure if that is the best choice or not. The goal is to get something that will last as long as possible. I'm okay doing...

re: How to find sewer cleanouts? - Conch Shell
My builder told me to look for small circles on the side of the slab to find mine. He said it was fairly common for the plumbers put bottle caps on the form boards by the cleanouts so they can find them. I guess it might depend on the plumber or the age of the house, but it might be worth a lo...

re: Lake temperature gauge recommendations - Conch Shell
Thanks, I don't need wifi, just something to look at during the cooler months. Also, I can take the lead up to stop the algae growth. I just want to make sure the display can last outdoors under a covered dock....

Lake temperature gauge recommendations - Conch Shell
I'm looking to find a lake temperature gauge to leave permanently on a freshwater dock, but don't see many available. I'd be fine with electrical or battery operated and I'd like to be able to get the temp on one unit at both 5' and 10' if possible. Separate units at each depth would be okay to...

re: When are you applying your pre emergent? - Conch Shell
Crawdude, is there a reason you are doing prodiamine first and simazine second? I like the idea of using both and the reason I ask is that I already received my simazine and have to order the prodiamine....

re: Simazine - should I mix anything else with it? - Conch Shell
CenlaLowel and ronk, thanks for the reply. I'm always impressed with the responses from ya'll, crawdude and GC. I don't know what the second pic is. It looks like small clover patches and those small pink flowers just started on them. I'll go looking around to see if I can identify it....

Simazine - should I mix anything else with it? - Conch Shell
Hello, I've settled on Simazine for the fall pre emergent based on the LSU water runoff article. Should I mix anything else with it besides surfactant when applying to get better results from the same application? I'm in Covington with Centipede if that helps....
