    A TFP pic...

    P1020673.jpg

    It looks like this every day with minutes of effort...this pool was BLACK when I opened it. You MUST follow POOL SCHOOL to the letter. This liner is about 16 years old. We have had two liners in the 26 years this pool has been open. It has been stained brown and orange at times. Follow the directions given here and you will get these results. A TEST KIT is a must, though...

    How come you have your vac hose going over the coping and not through the skimmer?

    If his skimmer plate sits on the basket with a vertical inlet you go from above, some are horizontal which allows you to go through weir door. And some people I've read remove the skimmer basket altogether and put the hose pipe directly into the pvc.

    ah didn't know that.

    on mine I have to remove the skimmer basket and go through the weir door.

    If I went over the coping it might suck some air initially.

    Yeah, it can be a moments challenge to take that water filled hose and grab it around and put it on the skimmer plate from above....but with the skimmer basket there it collects all the big stuff instead of sending it through to the pump basket and filter.

    Sucking air has never hurt my equipment. It picks back up and pumps very quickly...
