Is there a recommended distance to keep around pool equipment when putting a trellis around it and can it go over the top?

What you want to allow for is for the equipment to be serviced allowing plenty of room for the service tech or whoever to get to each piece of equipment easily. A way to look at it is the longer it takes a tech to get to and be able to maneuver around the equipment and trellis etc the quicker he will be able to finish. Time is money. So if it would have taken a tech 40 min. to do a job or trouble shoot normally and it now takes 1.5 hrs to do the same job --- you are going to be billed for his time.

Both the pump motor and the pool heater need air circulation. The heater required a great deal of air circulation or ventilation in order to run or burn correctly. If you have a heater that is stackless then you need x amount of space on all four sides and top of the heater. That space is both regulated by the manufacturer and city codes to be of a specific measurement with NO deviation. A stack top heater also requires similar spacing on all sides with the exception of the stack. It has it's own requirements. The heater cannot be placed on any combustible material and the requirement for spacing of combustible material around and above the heater also have specific requirements. You cannot arbitrarily build an enclosure ( any type)around the equipment or heater. One requirement - as a service tech - would be to have enough head room in order to stand up while doing certain jobs. Bending over while doing a job that required standing takes longer to do translates to be more costly to you. If your enclosure is confining in that it blocks air circulation you then have to provide for that circulation another way. The heater requires so many square inches of ventilation space both at the top of the enclosure and the bottom and at opposing sides of the enclosure. The heater cannot be placed in a manner that it vents within four feet of an opening to the house. I E : bedroom window, door etc.

A manual should have come with your heater if not contact your heater's manufacturer on the Internet and they will gladly mail one at no charge.

The pool filter if it is a verticle D. E. tank will require room enough to remove the filter grid assembly from the top of the tank. You should not have to separate the tank from the pool plumbing to perform service on a filter.

Hope this is helpful.

Start them off by putting them in sups of water and letting them soak overnight, or a little longer and then put them in the ground with a trellis behind them.

i wonder there is no such word for trellis, as its meaning says trellis is a fence or something out of wood. But as u dont have the word opposite to wood, u cant get even this :)

For a simple trellis, probably not. A building permit would be required if one was going to alter the structure that the trellis is going to be attached to. To be certain contact your city hall.

It's trellis because it flows through different layers of rock.

"Mary looked at the growing vines wrapping gentley around the wooden trellis on the porch."

That is a factor of what you are building it out of and how big it is. There is no way of knowing without more information. Will it just be supporting itself or is it to be a trellis?

I would say Trellis because it doesn't look dendritic, but I can't be sure.

First you will have to determine what size of trellis netting you will be using to grow your cucumbers. Once that is decided and you have the trellis netting, install it using metal or wooden stakes. It can be hung straight up from the ground or you can make an A-frame with it and grow the cukes up both sides. After the trellis netting is installed, plant your cucumbers about 18" apart. Once the plants have grown enough to reach the trellis, you can place the vine in the netting. Do not get in a hurry as it takes a few weeks to really get going. Once the plant takes off on the trellis, you will notice little vines that twist themselves around the netting, that is how it holds on. Just make sure you keep the vine moving straight up the netting. Enjoy your cucumbers!
