    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Thx everyone...wish I could find the last couple of pieces of missing tile on the spa dam though. I re-attached what I could find from the bottom of the pool, but a few were missing. Can't seem to find a match anywhere.

    Did you check National Pool Tile (www.nptgonline.com)? They might have it, or something real close.
