Worked off and on all summer on an 18x33 liner replacement, gorilla pad, foam pool cove project. Yesterday was our first swim day. My thermometer was pegged out well above 110 'F during the whole ordeal. That made yesterday that much more satisfying. As I was nearing my dreaded skimmer cut-in, I was sweating bullets from the heat and putting a blade to a $500 dollar liner. Finally bringing my water level up to mid-skimmer, I started the pump... nothing but a hum. I ended up pulling the pump and disassembling until I reached the impeller. After freeing the impeller, I noticed the shaft was not turning as free as I would have liked. So more than likely I'll be replacing a pump soon. All is well for now...Yesterday, before the kids woke up, I was underwater cleaning my new liner. I was having way too much fun. I get a lot of satisfaction from keeping a sparkling super-clean pool. Balancing the water, vacuuming, back-flushing, just taking care of my little piece of water is so much fun. Wife says I'm way too anal about the pool and I probably need counselling. but what do you say besides, YEP!!! Taking care of the pool is like therapy. I was excited to find this website. I'm glad I'm not the only pool lover around. Is it because I'm an Aquarius? sorry the long post..happytobehere.
