Diving board assembly received was not what we ordered. We ordered the "S.R. Smith Supreme Jump Stand with Glas-Hide Diving Board" but received the "S.R. Smith Cantilever Jump Stand with Glas-Hide Diving Board" The only difference is the stand. The stand for the Supreme Jump Stand is fiberglass, while the stand for the Cantilever Jump Stand is steel. The spring plates and mounting system are identical. Cost is nearly identical.
We elected to just keep the Cantilever version rather than hassle with a return.
The board assembly was shipped in three boxes: board, stand+jig, and leaf springs. Weeks after replacing the slab and during the assembly of the board and stand, we discovered the glas-hide board had been damaged in shipping. The exterior of the box was pretty well shredded during delivery. But the board was triple boxed and had formed foam protection all the way around the board. The damage was on the pool end of the board, on the underside. It was clearly damage from shipping/handling and was a 2in long crumbled fracture in the fiberglass parallel to the front of the board. The damage appeared to be caused by dropping the box on end from some height. Since the project was so far along already, we elected to keep it. We will repair it with some epoxy. As was written in big bold letters on the board shipping box exterior: check for damage when receiving the board. We didn't and got bit.
This board assembly was to be a replacement of a 45 year old board and stand. Thus the concrete slab and in-concrete mounting jig needed to be replaced. This is not a weekend job -- if you are comfortable doing hard core concrete work, no problem; otherwise contract out this part of the job. The directions call out for setting the mounting jig in a minimum of 4ft by 8ft x 1/2ft concrete slab. In our case, the slab dimensions were adjusted to match the existing pool deck and those dimensions were checked by a licensed structural engineer. We added a grid of 10in centers, 3/8in rebar in the lower depth of our 8in thick slab and another in the upper depth while engaging the diving board mounting jig. We poured 27 cubic feet concrete to form the new slab. We waited 28 days to allow the concrete to cure sufficiently before torquing the slab to stand bolts and before allowing anyone to use it.
Hardware for the board and stand assembly are high quality, large gauge of stainless steel and brass. When assembling, we took extra care studying and follow the exploded view of the board and stand that was shown in the minimal directions. The directions simply said assemble per diagram 1, 2, 3, etc.
All in all the board and stand are top notch. But the shipping and the shipment of the correct parts was flawed, so check your delivered order for correctness and shipping damage immediately.
