I am new to TFP and just wanted to show off my new pool. This pool replaced a 18x48 frame set pool, I added the sand filter to the frameset pool 2 years ago and kept it for the new pool. I hard piped the pool and filter station to keep the electric over 15' fromthe pool so I didn't have to install a ground field around the pool. I only grounded the motor at the filter station with one ground rod. I couldn't believe the increased flow over the corugated hoses I was using. I guess that the corugation created a lot of turbulance and reduced the flow. The bypass valve for the solar panels will be automated as soon as I can collect the parts needed and write the code for the plc controller. I am using the tablet feeder as I have a great source for the tabs, and will be using the bbb method described here at TFP. BBB? I guess that I really using PBB, PBB wow that is close to PBR!!! Great idea for Saturday! I realy want to backfill around the pool, Is this a good or bad idea? If not, why? The fence was to satisfy the insurance company. I also have six, 2'x20' solar panels that will lay where the dirt pile is behind the pool. I thought about mounting on the roof, but the roof is 12/12 pitch, my punp doesn't really have the head to pump to the top panel, and the roof is one year old and I don't want to damage it. I have read in the forum of people cuttting the solar blanket to make it easier to handle, how is it being cut? into strips or pie cut? Tia to everyone for there info.
