    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #159

    Question

    If, in discussing a new project with your client, you use such terms as coping, body feed, freeboard, flocculating agent, wet niche, and scum channel, what is the project?

    Answer

    All these terms refer to swimming pools:

    Coping: Perimeter edging
    Body feed: Continual addition of chemicals for precoating filters
    Freeboard: Distance between water surface and deck surface
    Flocculating agents: Compounds that coalesce finely suspended particles
    Wet niche: Recess for underwater light
    Scum channel: Perimeter overflow channel
     


     

    Okay, got it? Now try this week's Puzzler:
