I'm Zea from the Texas Gulf Coast.
This is my fourth season with my above ground pool, which I love. Currently dealing with green, cloudy water, which I don't love! My questions don't have to deal with the current state of my water. I've been doing the bleach thing the last couple of days and are slowly making progress. I hope I can make this system work since I have probably shelled out more to Leslie's Pools than I have for my son's college tuition!
Anyway, question 1 is this; has anyone had a problem with the metal mounting brackets rusting out on their pump?
I have a Pentair Dynamo 1.5 hp pump and the brackets have rusted completely through. I have been told the only way to fix it is too replace the pump motor since the brackets are part of the motor housing. The pump doesn't move around on its own and I have used some nylon strapping to hold it in place. Of course the rust started after the 1 year warranty period. Anyone have another solution?
Also, anyone have any experience dealing with racoons? They live near by and have decided my pool is perfect for washing their food at night! I didn't put a cover on last winter because I was afraid they would tear it up to get at the water. Any ideas?
Sorry for the long post. Love all the information!
