    Stabilizer Q

    I had put my stabilizer in a sock to hang in front of the intake (trying to get "swamp to oasis"), and it fell off into the green swamp. Can''t find it cause I can't see! Will the stabilizer hurt my vinyl lining?

    Yes, there is some chance of minor damage, usually discoloration or shortened vinyl lifetime in that area. If you can scoop it up with a leaf net that would be very good.

    >jblizzle: A video would have been more appropriate...to capture the sound. "OMG! OMG!! Yuck! Where the heck is that thing?! This so gross! It has to be in here! OMG! AAAGGGHHH!" Or something like that...lol. Me on my tippy toes (I'm only 5' in a 4' pool) with my arms over my head 'cause of the freezing water only an arctic penguin could appreciate, slipping and sliding on the slimy ick. Classic!
