    They did some grading yesterday and set up the equipment pad. The liner goes in as soon as it stops raining.

    How very exciting! I'm getting my bikini ready so I can test it out for you and make sure it's all perfect!
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Re: Michigan Pool Build

    It has rained all week! Not much getting done except for a little electrical. I can only run the pump 3 hours at a time to avoid overheating as it's temped up on 110. The water is getting more clear each day. I'm going to try out the test kit this afternoon. I did drop the Dolphin in last night for about 3 hours.

    Re: Michigan Pool Build

    Thanks! I was referring to the pump overheating. The electrician has it temporarily running on 110 and said it can only run for a couple of hours or it will overheat and damage the pump motor.

    Re: Michigan Pool Build

    Is the pump a 240 volt-only motor, or is it dual-voltage? If it's a 240-only motor, then that makes sense. If it's a dual-voltage motor, then it should be fine on 120v.
