I am laying a walkway with paving stones. If I add 2 inch of sand to 375 sq feet of space, how much cubic ft of sand will I require?

Since a cubic foot is 12" x 12" x 12", if you were to make the sand 12" thick you would have 375 cubic feet of sand. However, since you want your sand 2" thick (which is 1/6th of a foot), you simply divide the 375 by 6 to get the value of sand in cubic feet (62.5).

The mixture of sand and cement for laying bricks

mortar proportions are always expressed as a proportion of cement to lime to sand and always in that order
common mortar made from portland cement has one part cement to one part lime and 6 parts sand ===1:1:6
Cement bags have the mix written on the side for mortar mix or concrete mix or you can get mortar mix cement which already has the lime added

Is the saltwater system better then regular filter system

consider this
if the pool construction is concrete with steel re-enforcement, the salt will corrode the steel and after a while ,cracks will appear in the cement ( cement is not water proof and will over time allow the salt into contact with the steel which rusts , expands and cracks the cement
next salt pool operations have a chlorinator inbuilt into the system that produces chlorine that is used to disinfect the water and those units are subject to expensive repairs
you will need a filter ( sand or paper) to remove objects from the pool during the cleaning processes
now add the cost of salt , possible repair costs to the unit and compare to just sand or filters and you have a decision to be made
Really the best advice is to go to several different pool shops and ask questions about what I have suggested--- rust , corrosion, salt cost on going, parts and repairs and power costs- sand or filter costs.get a balanced information base then make a decision that is comfortable for you

Three lights work out of seven after I reinstalled them after cement walkway was put in

I don't know if wire is damaged, connections are bad, or bulbs burned out.
Best to test each.

What is the sand and cement mix ratio for a patio

Hello. The typical volume-ratio for a self-mix concrete in this application would be one part Portland cement to three parts sand. For a stronger pad (capable of higher stress loads) it would be as low as two parts sand, but this is not necessary for a standard patio pour. The gravel should be three parts, more will make it tougher to achieve a smooth finish. Re-cap: Portland cement - 1 part, sand - 2 or 3 parts, gravel - 3 parts. Hope this helped.
