Mike – Elina Root

Hello Eleanor,

My watsu teacher, Cameron West, referred me to your company.
She bought a dome from you guys for her above ground 20×20 pool.
Do you customize the domes to fit Inground Pools? I don’t know exactly the size of it but I have a pic attached. It has a pea pod shape and maybe 20-25′ long.
And how would it get installed into the cement ground?

Thank you.

Elina Root

 

Hi Bob!

How are you doing? , well I am writting you for a couple of technical questions about your domes, I am planning to have several days camping at the mountains by winter, the idea is to use a 18′ yurtdome as a base camp tent for my ski trips…

Im not speaking about high altitude extreme mountaineering, but in my experience, would be great to have a cover, or something to cover the top of the dome, to avoid snow accumulation at the flat sections between the poles, that’s available from you?

And by the way, it is possible to add more vinyl windows? in a bigger section? would be excellent to have big windows to see through….

Well that’s it, thank you very much for your time.. and of course, any advice for winter camping and which model to choose from your products its highly appreciated..

Thanks!
Raul

 

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the good suggestions, I will follow them. Is the cord that was used to tie up the canopy and poles (we have several meters of that) appropriate for the tension cords?

Unfortunately, I cannot tell you more than that the canopies are being used as protective wind walls for outside testing. I’ll see if I can get a photo and perhaps send you an update if things become public.

Thanks
Mike

Hi Mike

This should work, but to get the most strength when “your” door is closed I suggest adding two way diagonal tension cords in the two panels you have cut and a ground cord. Carabiners could be added to tension cord ends to facilitate applying and removing cords. Tension cords when used should be secured to the “Grip Clip cords that the connectors are attached to”. Cords could be color coded and knotted to the right length to be pretensioned in advance. A low stretch cords such as kevlar or spectra are preferred for low stretch available from west marine.

Let me know if I can help more.

I am curious what function you are using the domes for (photo?)

Sincerely,

Bob Gillis
